    Hotrodding Basics
    Hello all, It looks like my transmission is on its last leg here and taking its sweet time shifting into a higher gear+only at high RPMs. A rebuild is mandatory, but I've gotten a decent run from it after it was recycled from my old 327 SBC. I figured, while I had the tranny out for rebuild...

    I have a '85 K5 that came with a 305 and a 700r4 with 4x4. I recently picked up a 350 from a '94 blazer/suburban/Yukon, etc. (Dont know which exactly, got that from the casting numbers). The new 94 engine came with a TBI, instead of the 4bbl I have on the 305, so it has a pcm. I want to keep...

    Hi All, About a year ago I asked for some help regarding the 4L60e in my '94 Chevy 1500. I have been having issues with getting it to shift into 4th. At times, it prefers to bog between 3rd and 4th. I replaced the TPS, along with the temperature sensors and they seemed to have helped the...
