Well everything from the flywheel to axles has been rebuilt so there is no way it's the rear end. Then he said my adjustable rear upper and lower control arms bushings are bad, which they're but I doubt those will give the tranny any problem shifting. Then he said my shifter is too short and it will void my warranty if I don't get a longer one. WTF!!!!! You guys don't understand how mas I was leaving his shop. I told him I'm going to get everything else fixed and if it still does it I'm going to ask for my money back. He got mad and walked away. Greeeeat.

Good luck with it then. Only rationale I could possibly think of is he could say the stops on the aftermarket shifter were set wrong which didn't allow the transmission to fully engage and damaged something. IIRC the TKO line doesn't have internal stops like the 3650 does.

No, he said the shifter itself, as in the stick is too short. He said the short throw itself is fine. That's just f'n ridiculous man
