    Congratulations to cpop98ws6 for winning the February COTM spot!


    First I want to thank everyone for all the votes!
    The car is a 1998 WS6 Convertible A4, I bought this car in January of 2006 off a dealer lot in Allentown Pa. The car was bone stock with 52,000 miles on it. I am the second owner and I couldn't be happier with this car. Within a month of having the car I put a Magnaflow catback on and a SLP air lid, I wasn't planning on doing anything major to the car until I spun a main bearing in the summer of 09 (68,000 Miles). Since then I have been slowly upgrading every inch of this car. The car now has 72,300 miles on it and it see the drag strip about once a month, I put about 2,000 miles on it over the summer months. The car has went 11.51 @118 with a 1.57 60 ft and has 430 RWHP and 426 RWTQ.

    Common Problems of the T-56

    I doubt your problem is synchro related. The T56 is just a pita notchy transmission because of its slide rail design coupled with a sorry hydraulic setup.

    Using Oil?

    Fresh oil and filter in. I bought 7 quarts, and put in 6 per Sean's instructions. I'll keep the 7th one in case I need to add.

    Great advice Gents! Dealer diagnosed and replaced the tranny mount (SO glad I took to a GM dealer where the service techs own a couple of 4th Gen F-bodys!!!)

    good news. at the major service, after I put the dye in, the GM dealer took a look with their powerful UV light, but saw no obvious leaks either. Must
