maybe you were trying to make a pun, eg. Break HP
so what sort of posi did you install and where'd you get it from ?

I believe its a factory posi...I have a race buddy ..he works for All-Trans in Portland...sold this posi to me for 150.00 bucks..they have no more for liability reasons...They were supposed to be sold for 8-900 bucks..

He gave me this site to check for other possibilities..QUAFE.com, Import posi unit

umm, if you pull off 5th gear, what holds preload on the bearings?

wow.

i wonder how many times someone can spell QUAIFE wrong.

fyi: "the number you have dialed is no longer in service, please hang up and try your call again. this is a recording"

Its hard to figure one out. On one hand he is blowing transmissions during the race season and on the other hand his buddy who joined the forum is telling us that he's 9 years old....What do we call that without being too derogatory :P.

I havent test drove the car yet,, am still in the process of building exhaust pieces for my new turbo installation..Then I will also add 2 or 3 motor and tranny mounts beings the 1 broke that attaches to bottom back side of the block..which also broke a chunk out of the block..And the reason for pulling 5th gear..there is no need for it doing the 1/4 mile. and also I will have no 2nd to no gear and 2nd to 5th gear shifts anymore..This is just a quarter mile car Only
