My shifter is terrible, gears move all over the place, I think I broke something, when I reinstalled the trans, the level got pinched between the trans and the body, I had to pry it free/

I have the TMOD rebuilt lower box and 5% reduction shifter waiting to go into my car. Can't wait to eventually see how it feels.
When you install the box, pay very close attention to alignment with the shift linkage. Once you get it all dialed in, the shifter action is fantastic with that box. 5/7 upgrade.
Gonna have my Corvette tech buddy do it probably along with a couple of other things

TMOD Might be the way to go for me.

Dude seems to have his stuff together.

Still not sure what you broke, but if it's internal to the trans, that would be beyond TMOD

Right, but I figure that would have shown itself by now, I've put about 5k miles on the car.

Hard to say..if gears are moving around, it might still be functioning but broken.

Do you want your C6 shifter back? I've still got it here at the house since I put the short throw back in it.

Got the AC condenser replaced today. Shop was 5/7, charged me $280 when :dillerman: quoted $750 for labor. The part was about $160 from GM/AC Delco. I swear AC was blowing colder and temps def stayed lower driving home.

They also brought me out to show me how filthy the radiator was and cleaned it out, so I’ll see how this holds up before :wasteful: on the $700 radiator.

Only thing left to do is replace the oil pressure sensor again and it’ll be as prepped for the Dragon as it’s going to get. May give it a quick detail Sunday.

My radiator was surprisingly clean given I've driven it every day for almost two months.

Also which airboater made this

Too bad my phone doesn't fit into the ring, but I can either remove it or get one of those cup holder phone mounts now.

That's Dalton. He's fresh to Baton Rouge. Moved for work. I think he's with Eaton.
He gave :melon: and I his business card and said he's the guy that makes the corvette clips. This was at an Autocross.
My wife said he made his first 2 runs in first gear and said I should go talk to him to see if he needs some guidance. Went talk to him, asked if he was in first... He told me (keep in mind, he's got a 6 speed manual) "Yeah, I've got 3.15 gears in it".
I asked how the hell, he said "All the manuals came with 3.15s stock, and the 3.42 was an option that you had to pay for"

So yeah. Do with that what you will.

:notbad: How much did that set you back? Kinda nice actually.

I've been getting work done on the :poorvette:

I pulled the intake manifold off (can do it in 30 minutes now, nearing airboat status) last night and removed the OPS. It appears fine, but I took it back to the Chevy :dillerman: and they warrantied it. I will put in the new one tonight when I get home.

I also put on the new coolant expansion tank the other day, seems it is no longer leaking and the cooling system is working well.

Feeling good about all of the TN prep, it's nice to have some of the laundry list of maintenance needs done.

$23 for the one that says CORVETTE or $20 for the normal one I think. Use code SHIPONUS for free shipping

He reiterated it, and I was like ok guy. Didn't wanna get into an argument with a new guy at Autocross and put a bad taste in his mouth so I just let it be.

Yea, often times it's best to just let people go when they're adamant about misinformation. Being a jerk and pushing someone away doesn't really do any good.
