Dont listen to these guys. Is the car missing? If not its gotta be a torque converter giving up the ghost. Its not an ex cab is it?

Im being serious, helf of these guys posting threads dont tell the whole story, they go to the doctor and dont want to admit whats wrong but want a solution. If he would have come clean in the first place, we would all say, well its an ex cab so what do you want for $1500?

How can I sit on the sideline when these guys run up the ball and are begging for a crunching tackle. Also im like a jungle cat, nobody can get me with a spear tackle. Ill show you guys a clean pair of heels

thanks for Generalizing mate but first of all you aint no doctor and second when did i hesitate to admit whats wrong???
what i wanted to do was now roughly where the problem is because if its the diff im wanting to install a new 3.7 lsd and if it was the gear box i was goin to do a manual conversion.
since you want the whole story hear it is, i woke up in the morning i got dressed started the car and when i was taking off the car was revving a little high for the speed it was travelling. then i put the foot down to see if anything was wrong and the car didnt go as hard as usual. checked the engine bay everythin fine now hear i am asking any one if they have had similer problems and why its doing it

flaring revs you mean, auto low on fluid. usually a full trans service will fix it.
It also could mean a number of things, map sensor vacuum hose leaking.

EB V8 LS1 gets hammered by a worked ex-cab EA inline 6 at the lights nearly every day, hence... the frustrations with 6 cylinder EA's.
