When did your 5R spit the bit?

Who has torn their 5R to shreds
Yet? At what power levels ? How did it happen? Other than catastrophic failure when is it time to bite the 3 stack+ bullet?

Re: When did your 5R spit the bit?

First day with 225's and a VGT-SS. Blew through a 2-3 shift then every gear was like neutral. Suncoast full rebuild lasted about 125 miles. Threw all that garbage including the 6leaker behind the garage and did a 5.9/4R100 swap. Best decision I ever made regarding that truck.

I had my 190s and p max on for about 6-7k miles and it started to take longer to get in gear and reverse.
