On the Turner or OEM?

I'm in for the installation portion...

I'm finding prices on both, also with polyurethane subframe bushings. If you're going to remove the rear subframe, should do the bushings too, but the choice is yours. Just finding out all the pricing and options.

Still waiting on another email back from Turner, but I'm thinking we'd probably be able to get a better price on OEM from the stealer... with the right connections.

Thanks for taking the lead Justin - I'm down 100%.

Is there a more thorough DIY writeup (not that I want to try, but at least understand...)

Yep, Powerflex seems to be the most recommended. I'm getting prices on both the street, and race versions. So far the race version seems to be quite a bit more expensive, so hopefully buying in bulk will bring the price down significantly.

I can't find a DIY anywhere, but it is a very tedious process. You basically have to disconnect or remove your entire underbody from the transmission back to weld the plates in properly. Everything behind your transmission has to come off. From your fuel pump/sending unit, to your e-brake lines, differential, drive axles, tires, trailing arms, etc.
