When I was ordering my build from Greg at Vintage he warned me that the trans was loud. He is a master of understatement. Third gear sounds just like the power takeoff on my grandfathers Massey Ferguson tractor. I actually called Rancho, who I believe is the supplier, and asked if they might have forgotten the oil. I’ve owned various Porsches and VW and none had such loud trannies. Why? Is there some magic fluid to quiet it down? Though third gear takes me nostalgically back to those halcyon days on the farm in Spokane, maybe I should leave it alone. Cheers.
