Some of you may have remembered my setup from my previous posts as of less then a week ago. The car is a 71 Nova that is mainly a street car and may see one visit to the track purely for my own curiosity. The motor is a 475-500 horsepower 454 backed by a turbo 350. The entire setup is new as of 200 or so miles ago with both the motor and tranny being rebuilt by very reputable shops. The tranny was rebuilt with all heavy duty clutches, some kind of racing sprags (34 element I think??) and a transgo shift kit. The problem im encountering (with the tranny feeling like its "sliding" into gear, unable to actually feel the tranny shift) was present as soon as the new motor, tranny.torque converter, driveshaft, etc. were put in.
As Always, any information you guys can share is greatly appreciated.

Rob
