Thanks for the contribution.

Im going to be doing another oil change, coolant flush, power steering fluid, pentosin ATF-1, TC fluid, walnut shell blast and possibly new coils and injectors while I'm at it, just so that i dont have to worry about maintenance anymore for a while.

I definitely fall in the category of high torque abuse and I guess I'm just confused as to how so many different people report TC horror stories without ever seeing anyone personally report such with enough substance to substantiate the claims that the typical bolt ons and/or meth broke their TC. Granted I havent really tried combing through google, mainly because I cant see many people abusing their cars with high torque from standstills as I have. Leading me to think that a few xi's had bad OEM TCs and thats all, maybe with the extra power accelerating the otherwise inevitable premature failure.
