Hi folks, since I have a "cattle grind" effect(rpms flactuating while cruising, but not in a MS mode) I came to to conclusion that a torque converter needs to be refurbished/uprated. Found a company called Sussex autos, they also uprates/reinforce the TC locking mechanism(or something along those lines) Since the gearbox oil will have to be drained and new sump pan fitted anyway I thought that I could Google the other stuff that I could change it while at it. Besides mehatronic sleeve and other gaskets seals I found complete refurbishment kit/kits. Some of them comes with a nozzles(or something like that)and some don't, fair enough. Then I stumble upon different articles regarding this gearbox like stage 2 exedy sport clutch package that fits zf6hp26 AND 6R80(gearbox wich is a uprated gearbox but from Ford, straight fit would be nice..). Then there is a company in Autralia or NZ that does a uprated gearbox internals like drive shafts and other parts including TCs.... Anyway. . Has anybody bothered here to upgrade/uprate the gearbox for 535d? Got a remap and all but the gearbox and the TC is a limiting factor at the moment. I could change the oil and the TC + the seals/gaskets for the gearbox itself but for a extra £450 from exedy I could improve the gearbox so it handles close to 900-1000Nm instead of standart 700 Nm.. The other thing, is there a trader here or somebody else who could point me to the right direction where to get the ZF longlife 6 (or something like that) gearbox oil? I think I need a 10 litres of that stuff.. offcourse with a member discount and all.. Not too keen on ebay as one seller was offering 10 litres for £104 and the other one just offered 6 litres for £94.... something dodgy over there.
