Also in mid-year 2005 the gears and countershaft changed to straighter cut gears, so there are 2 different part numbers for gears and shafts in a gen 3 T56.
    They did. The whole thing is destroyed. Everything needs to be replaced. He send me pics and it was painful to look at, lol. Least I'll have a brand new tranny. $3k now, but what do you do...?

    I do the same thing all of the time on social media when I get ignored-- it must be a thing Viper owners have? Don't worry about it bro and I am sure you'll be back to a1 condition shortly.

    Thank you sir. I'm told it will be like new, so hopefully I'll have years of worry free driving.

    You do the conversion to Magnum T56 (Rockland calls it Tranzilla). replaces guts with TR6060 components.
    Or cheap out like I did and get a used trans for about $2k.
