    Took me awhile to find the instructions again, but it is not recommended shifting above 6500 rpm.

    .

    install instructions pdf format

    Here is my dad driving it 3 years ago, he did pretty good considering he had
    not driven a manual in about 5 years at the time, and was in the early stage
    of Alzheimer. Not sure if he would even recall driving it now.

    Just a random thought here...........What the "bleep" were they thinking when they designed a performance trans that has a 6000rpm limit?!!

    Mine will be going back this winter. I will give the Tko a second chance. Hopefully it will come back quieter.
