2000 Monte SS

Here's my new ride... unfortunately it's in the hospital getting a new transmission. Thing went out at 63,000 miles. My luck. She's no gimp when she's alright though. I'll put some better pictures on sometime, along w/ my Gutlass Cutlass

Any suggestioins for upgrades on a vehicle like this? Don't see a whole lot of them where I'm from... and the ones I do see are about as bone stock as they get. Thanx.

She was like the what the hell and i was like, wow, your tranny is busted, turn out, they brouht it to Bustard the next day and turn out, busted tranny.

Took the thing to the tranny shop Monday, and it should probably be done Friday... I guess they're waiting for a couple parts yet. Most of the expense is in labor; FWD trannies don't like to be pulled... thus it takes a long time to pull it and put it back in. I suppose you could prolly gut it and put the new stuff in in a matter of an hour or so. Who knows. Thing of it is, it didn't just up and quit on me. It was still drivable when I took it in, but if I drove it for a longer period of time, the tranny started humming. They told me it was due to a clogged filter... clogged from gear, clutch, and band pieces Oh well. Should be good as new when I get it back.
