Yes, the trans can whine even while in neutral if the car is moving. The shaft in the trans is still moving when the car is moving, putting it in neutral only disconnects it from the engine, not the rear and drive shaft.

If you want answers do this..


Put in N turn off car and coast and see if it makes the noise. If it does we can eliminate the clutch being the problem. That leaves the tranny back.

Disconnect the drive shaft, push the car, if you get a whine, it's the rear. No whine means it's the tranny.

If I had to guess, it's your tranny. 6500 is a massive amount of power to put into 2nd gear. Did you quickly get out or did the engine redline and shut the fuel off and lock the wheels up?

I quickly got out of the gear, it might of axle hopped a couple of times, but it did not lock up the rear. Well, this does not sound good. I am super pissed at myself. So if the tranny is shot how much am I looking at for a tranny rebuild?

Thanks I will more than likely end up replacing the gears, differential, and going with moser 31 spline. At that point, I will address the tranny issues if there are any. This is going to be one expensive mistake. Oh well, at least I have all winter to get it done lol.

You may not need a new tranny, it all depends on what if any you broke in it. I had my old 5.0 tranny rebuilt for 500 bucks..

On a 5.0 it's a T5, which is a hunk of schit (no offense).
It will be more expensive to go through the Tremec he has now.

I say it's a good time to go 6spd if his current tranny is waxed.
However, with his 4.10 gears, the 1st gear might be useless...

You already have 31 spline axles. No need for anything more for 99% of us. IF they are damaged, which I wold put money on they are not, then an upgrade would not cost any extra than OEM pieces.

Your differential and gears are probably okay. Usually when something like that happens it will break teeth off in the ring/pinion if the diff does get damaged.

I would lean towards a transmission issue.

UPDATE!!! It ended up being the differential and gears...both getting replaced today...I don't have a clue exactly what or how they were damaged just know those were the two things that needed replaced...Im sure TorchRed04GT will give an update on details sometime soon...no tranny issues tho so thats a plus
