Before anyone just jumps and says m66 swap! Let me give some background.
My 06 V70R is getting some shift flares, mainly from 2nd to 3rd under harder acceleration. I have been toying with the idea of doing an M66 swap but finding one is a pain in my ass and most of the time they're 1500+ dollars for the entire swap.
However I found a new valvebody for 730 bucks and I can do the swap with a buddy for next to nothing and have a fresh TF-80SC.
The plans for the car are bolt ons and MAYBE a K24 hybrid and shooting for 350 at the wheels give or take.
I just want some opinions since I've read virtually every thread on here in regards to the auto and it's a stout transmission minus the VB issues. I commute to TX from NM for college so the auto is nice on the freeway but driving in 6th on the freeway isnt an issue either.
I'm just curious on people opinions. Ideally I'd like to stay away from any level 10 auto builds since I'm not shooting for anymore then 400 at the most anyway.
