I was only considering hot tanking the case for function and making sure the circuits of the VB were free of old debris ect...
If a few cans of brake clean and compressed air will do, then I'm good.

Yep, can't be TOO clean when it comes to auto trans assembly.

Also an update. Trans still shifts incredibly great. Better than any the dealers built. Every time I drive it I am amazed. I still can't believe it is going strong. I can't help but feel gun shy after all the bad builds I went through when it was new.

A gtg in Temple is coming up and if I can swing a new or at least newer pair of rear tires it shall make some passes. The ones on there now are a pair of Hoosier 255/60-15 on stock T wheels that I bought from Montgomery Ward and as many may know they went under a few years back.

I've got 255/60 MT DR's for the T and they work great plus the fit is nice. I run Hoosier QT Pros on the GS. 1.64 60ft off the foot brake

If you are going thru it yourself don't put it back together without a billet band anchor it's the part that failed on my DYI build.

Thanks for the advice. I've started a new thread here that greater details my situation, I'll keep that billet band anchor in mind.

They have the billet pin and the carbon band.
But as always I put in a plug for David Husek at Turbobuickperf ormance.com He will require a call but can get you anything you want or need and provide excellent service after the sale.
