I've been in the car business for awhile - isn't the dodge dealer going to laugh @ you for trying to get a transmission warrantied on a heavily modified truck? Hope you know the service manager or service writer! Friend of mine had his factory warranty "flagged" on his Ford powerstroke that had a programmer, lift, big tires & etc.... voided his waranty no matter where he went - truck only had 10k miles (he blew a head gasket racing it).

If you get it covered, your a good talker!

it is very uncommon for a g56 to have problems, there are alot of people sled pulling with around 1000 hp with a stock one so, this would be an exception to that I would say they are strong and plus the truck is new so he might have a bad tranny from the get go

I would tend to agree with you if it was a stock truck. But with his mod's and the fact that he was drag racing it, he should be on his own.

I guess were going to see how undetectable that smarty really is huh?



I posted this on your thread in DTR to but I work in Johnstown and saw you stop by the gas station there at around 8.30 in the morning but I was way to busy to stop by and say hi. Oh well next time, your going to have to run down to foco again were starting to get alot of the guys out to waste diesel again.

Boosted launches on a stock tranny with beta 4.4 = insane!! Sounds like someones getting a new billet tranny in the future
