That be nice but I don't really have the cash nor time to currently drop the trans and rebuild it. I'd almost rather let it blow and just swap out with another cheap stock tranny/possibly beef that one up.

For how many miles was the car stage 2 and how did you drive it? Stomp on it a lot or launch a good bit? Or pretty normal driving?
And should I bother adding an aftermarket tranny cooler even though I'm not doing a high stall TC because that adds most of the heat I know...is a tranny cooler required with just a VB upgrade?
