Anyone tried to get 8L90 reinforced?

https://mxamotorsports.com/product/m...ab-description

I found it, but no review about it.

Anyone heard or tried it?

Thank you, I will try to contact.

Btw , do you mind if I ask you about 2650? I contacted Cindy , Magnuson and she said now Magnuson provides only 2650 headunits and the upper pulley. Can I use other parts from 2300 like cooler hoses , pumps and ect with 2650 directly or need to modify them little bit?

Hey Shizzy, they did your A8, correct? Are you happy with it so far?

My co worker had Steve Rankin build his to a stage 2 whatever that is. Seems to be doing fine so far but he is just bolt ons.

I have a Steven 0.5 build and it is doing well so far. Many runs in the ~1000hp range and a few dyno runs over that.

I did have one trans completely explode after a mild build. I let it rip through the gears in the burn out box, 1,2,3,4,5,4,5 all in about 1-2seconds. I have been told that is a bad idea and to put on in 2nd and leave it there.

This is good to know because I have been letting it rip through the gears also. I will do all of my burnouts in second only from now on.

Absolutely love it. Just to be clear my stock trans was fine but we planned on pushing things hard this year.
