Turns out the transmission is not getting power to the solenoids. Probably a grounding issue. Its been struck in 5th gear without the tc locked up. Imagine waht its gonna feel like in first, second third, and fourth if 5th gear felt strong. LOL

Made some progress today. I have power to the Tranny, and its grounded, but it won't do anything other than park, R, N, and 5th. I am gonna have that fixed ASAP. I had a bad alternator the first time, but as you can see, its fixed.




Also moved the Glow plug module to the firewall, to clean up the swpace where it set. And Yes, I know there is a nut missing. LOL

Jesus! that thing must move. Oh here's a turbo from hell: www.turboneticsinc.com . search the site with the following key words: TN122. It's a billet forged turbocharger that can go up to 140 Lbs of boost and can make 3,500 Horsepower with a SINGLE TURBO. God forbid you put 4 of them on an engine and retune it for MAXIUM BOOST. It's on page 43 of the 2010 catalog.

I got the tranny figured out, and shouldn't be too hard of a fix. Hopefully by Monday night, I will be doing burnouts. The CAN feature of the PCM is losing a signal. When it does, the engine and tranny don't talk to each other, so it shuts off all of the solenoids, (its an electric solenoid tranny) except the ones for P, R, N and 5th gear. No matter what gear you select, 1,2,3, or D, it see's the signal, but only gives you 5th. I need to figure out why its losing a signal, and get that fixed. If I thought it pinned me in the seat in 5th, I can't imagine what the lower gears are gonna feel like.

Well after fixing the transmission today, and taking a little ride down a side street by the shop, I can officially say the ranger works in all gears now, and given the fact that I am not 100% sure that the front wheels were on the ground the whole time, I might have some steering issues. Thats fuel only on a street tune BTW. Yeah, its fukkin sick. Turns out the PCM was bad, and it was doing exactly what it was supposed to do. It makes 20 PSI in park revving to 2500 RPM's. The boost gauge on the street looks like its got a bottle rocket attached to it. Buttoning up a few last minute details,a nd shakedown passes will commence right after the new PCM gets here. April 10th in Dallas, will be exhibition only, shakedown passes.

glad to hear you got the transmission fixed and im sure that thing will just hold the front tires off the ground so that will always cause some steering issues haha. that sucks that the pcm was bad but i cant wait to see what it runs, keep it up

I thought I remembered seeing your thread build over on TRS, from a few months back. Honestly at first I thought you were in the process of wasting a bunch of money, time, and skinned knuckles on a project that would never come together to the finish. Glad to see that the truck finally became a reality. Your last post hit on my one and only question, "How in the hell do you steer that thing with the front end pointing skyward?" Keep the pics and details coming, this is pretty dang interesting.

Yeah, I've been looking forward to hearing how it does as well. Been following your build for a while. Quick random question; How much have you spent for this build?!
