No fifth gear at all, would not shift into 3rd above 5k. Hopefully the aftermarket clutch will be a band-aid for the new tranny

Well from what Ive been reading from the other forums it's usually the clutch houseing it self that burns down the clutch/ kills the tranny and the synchros.

Hope you don't have to pay for any thing dude

150 miles on mine. Low volume whining in 2,3,4. Nothing I could call disturbing yet, but you can bet your ass I'll be keeping a close ear on it to make sure it doesn't get worse.

In order to be covered by the Illinois Lemon Law, a vehicle must:

*

have a nonconformity that both substantially impairs the use , market value or safety of the vehicle and is not repairable by the dealer or manufacturer in at least four attempts for the same repair, or
*

be out of service for a total of 30 or more business days

Mine also has the whipple whine. I have no problems at all shifting, and Ive took it to the track several times. Doesnt really bug me, since the car has made that noise since I picked it up with 3 miles on it. Im at 8300 miles now problem free.

So what do guys think of this:

I have 9k on my 5.0 and the tranny has a noticable whine. I would not say it whines like crazy, but you can def notice it.

I have had a few instances when above 5 grand i can't get it into 3rd gear. I also get squeeks every now and then when I am using 5th gear.

I honestly am getting worried...I just want a Tremec tranny at this point ha.

I noticed this the day I picked my car up, I was actually going to make a thread today to ask everybody about it. Glad I'm not crazy.
