I think the hardest part for me was removing the locking clip on the CDV way up inside the car. There is a clip or something like that on it that you need to pop out and if you weren't sure what you were looking for you can easily not find it. Other than that it was fairly simple. That locking clip is the top end connector and the bottom end of this piece is right in your face when you take the well off. So disconnect those, and install new. DONE. Then bleed the system and off to the races.

A power bleeder does wonders for this BTW. And if you don't have a bleeder you will need a helper to bleed it. The instructions that he provides you are pretty good.

Let's just say I actually enjoy driving my car. Before I couldn't wait until I got on the highway because rowing the gears (which should be the most enjoyable experience) was so pathetic and I honestly wished I bought the auto with how bad it was compared to other cars I've driven.

I need one. HEy, is your transmission noisy when shifting gears? As in the lower gears you can actually hear the gears engage and make the ca-chunk sound..? Will this take that crap out or is Dodge transmissions, as of late, that big of a poo stick?

You hit the nail on the head.

No this will not remove that. The trans will still clunk into all the lower gears. On my car it's 3rd. I can have music blasting, windows up or down, and the loudness of the shift is just obnoxious.

If i roach stop it..and try to shift quick from first to second in lower rpm...CLUUNK..Was just wondering if this helps. I really want this kit. The idea of smoother shifts is nice. Does the engagement of the clutch change? As in where it engages on the clutch pedal travel?

It took me maybe an hour....lots of stopping and chatting, and i just had my dad pump the clutch while i bled it. Not difficult in the least. Hardest part was getting the fitting at the opposite end of the hard line from the cdv loose. So corroded. Anyway, has anyone cut the CDV open yet? for giggles
