    I have a cover similar to that. It puts a little pressure on the caps with those two bolts on the sides. I can't remember exactly how much but seemed really light. I really don't know whether it is doing any thing for me or not, but I was having leaking issues and seems to have fixed that.

    Yep, what he said. Cast will distort a fair amount under stress without cracking, and those bearing caps/bolts will only restrain just so much power.

    If you are going to be putting any kind of real power to it again, maybe some ARP studs and stronger caps? And/or a cover with the preload bolts that are screwed in to contact the caps to limit their movement?

    generally they have a groove in the cover because the entire housing twisted under load.... perhaps find a rock cover from one of the 4x4 shops? add a bit of strength to the hope it stays together....

    Ahh.. okay. I thought maybe you guys were putting P/S goo in the T5 and I got that confused tilted head look.
    Not sure if this was ever cleared up. I put one QT of Lucas ATF goo in the T5 and fill the rest with mecron.

    I hope to keep this car man pedal equipped!

    4.10's are fine. I think it's the "Go To" gear with an AOD. The spool and rain probably not my first choice for a "street car" but then again, Lutz is out driving a full on Pro Mod and calling it a "Street car" this week.
