Hey guys, it's been quite a while since I've posted on here. Ive only ever had to search and I get my answer but I think I need a little moral support here lol. I'll cut right to the chase though. I put a bunch of money into my motor and about this time last year my transmission finally let go. Believe it or not, it was the low reverse clutch, figured it would be the lovely stock torque converter or the diode that went first. Anyhow, moving on. I have a knack for Reinventing the wheel and have decided to put a 13 speed in it. I'm halfway into the project, have most of the parts ready for the install all except a divorced transfer case, an eaton shifter assembly and a lower alternator mount but I'm starting to look at the Fab work and I'm second-guessing the project. I believe its mostly because the misses is pushing for me to get it done and just wants me to rebuild the automatic. I'm trying to make this the ultimate tow rig that's where the 13 speed idea came from. I'm not being cheap, I want the pride to say I turned every bolt on it after the project is finished. So If the suggestion is to rebuild the automatic, I'll do it myself.
I'm wondering if anyone has undertook something of this magnitude before... or should I just rebuild the automatic and leave well enough alone?
