no, just a basic build. The engine really didn't need much as the crank just needed polished and heck, the bores were only .003 out. It just needed honed enough to take the glaze out. So just a hot tank, polish the crank and a quick hone.

I never got it to full. I just got it to the point where the pump picked up the fluid and started pumping it. when it did, it started to stream out when in neutral or in gear. it's pretty bad.

UPDATE: I did finally find the culprit. My new torque converter was cracked at the base of the snout. It was so fine of a crack that I could not see it without pressure testing it. Here is a youtube video of my home made pressure tester for the torque converter.

I am glad you found it. Does B&M not pressure test their converters? What a pain. I would be tempted to send it back and ask for a refund and go with another company. I've used Turbo Action and Dynamic with good results. Costs more, but I think a better quality unit.
