so i just put 1700 into the engine, all new cranks pullys gaskets etc etc etc
now i feel a hard shift from 1st to 2nd, a thud. but at high rpm it shifts smooth
ie: if im pulling from a stop sign slow and steady i get the thud, but if i floor it, itll shift smooth
shifting out of 1st into 2nd there is a slight lag around 2k rpm, and then you feel the power come back. but shifts smoothly throughout.
figure its time to get a new transmission, or parts , or just run it into the ground first ...
it is automatic, 97 legacy gt
btw, is a manual swap going to be fairly easy? had to buy auto bc my left knee was rebuilt. i think here in a bit ill be able to work a clutch. manual ftw
