SWMBO had one in her Sierra. But it leaked at the back, so up steep hills clouds of smoke would come through the centre console cubby box - presumably ATF dripping onto the exhaust. :blink:

im just making a road test vid of the new engine ill upload later.

 

for anyone fitting an A4LD box - engine needs to be set up corect in order for the vac pressure to corectly work the up and downshifts.

I have noticed that with the new engine and head/cam all dialled in with vernier and using timing disc, the gearbox now changes flawless, prior to this, on the old engine the shifts were not to satisfaction

Love it Pete

 

The dash cam is so much better though we are now in 2018 not 17 as the dash cam shows.

 

Don't forget the national speed limit is 70mph and the dash cam show what you are doing. :oops:
