I feel bad for all my fellow R members with slush boxes, lol.
Coming from some one who has owned both a MT and a GT R, I strongly prefer the auto trans to the manual.If only Volvo had brought the Ford Powershift DCT to America... The R with a dual clutch would be perfect.
you are not the only one... 666lm has as well and there are many more they just don't post up cause of the resale value might be effected...you don't have many people like stealthy or myself that post up just about everything.I've been on the forums for over 4 years, and I'm the only person I know of that has broken the M66 and sold off the internals.
Did Ford give instructions for the M66 in the focus? It's a Getrag sourced transmission so the data has to exist somewhere.IMHO, there is no way I would do all of the work to pull the trans out of a R, and then do a rebuild with used parts and just slapping the trans back together. Hell you can't even call that a rebuild. This might be fine for some one at the stock power level, that's not abusing the trans but with the boost turned up and an abusive driver that trans is just going to break again. I mean, if you broke the trans in the first place you're probably an abusive driver.
Hell does any one even know what the torque specs are for resembling the case? I looked all over the net trying to find it to help people, and couldn't find crap.

I'm not trying to be a dick, I was just feel Volvo shoved it in with out lube to M66 owners by not even supplying any internal parts to the trans, or even instructions on how to work on it.
