TR3650 Worth Replacing? Rebuild kits?
It seems like every month i end up having something wrong with this damn car. It has a large amount of track passes(im guessing 400~) Yet everything seems to be going premature. The throwout bearings are pure crap, finally found a clutch that works pretty well, and now the 3650 grinds going into only Second. It popped out of second during a burnout(line locked) at the track and ground really hard. I let it wind down and proceded with my run. On the way home i noticed that the car had troubles in second gear, low rpm or high, it ground into second. Low rpm, it floats in, but you feel and hear the grind. High and its just doing high pitched damage. My point is, ill pull the trans out this weekend. Should i look into buying a 3650 rebuild kit? Or just a newtakeoff 3650. I know the 3650's arent very good and ive read about many people going with the TR6060. At this point i relize i run the hell out of it and am looking for advice on it. How can i check to make sure its the sycros before pulling it apart? If i double clutch and it doesnt grind, then its fine? Should i rebuild the 3650/takeoff 3650/Tr6060 or Check into doing something different( trading for a GM) <---- Almost joking. Ive had countless $$'s in this car that i know ill never get back, so what should i put in it next? An auto? heh, just sell the engine and build a 408w with a C6 and fab it in? Im getting sick of this. a tr6060 will be 2k+ all the extra links/shifter etc. so im not to fond of that. -Jon
* Also, i currently read with an aftermarket shifter the adjustable stops should be taken out or it may not fully go into gear with the 3650( mabey why it popped out, even tho its been fine for 5k miles) Can anyone confirm this, as it wasnt on any of the directions i saw.
