For sure use a roller #9 to get rid of the thrust washer thats prone to spinning the tangs off. Broader Performance has this kit.
You need a good band for the intermediate, I'm still searching on this but the welded kevlar/carbon flex band from BP also looks like the part to use.
Not a fan of the 6 pinion planet, seen a bunch break, and on the same not a bunch live. The 3 pinion will have less drag and be sufficient, but it must have the roller bearings under the pinion gears.
Not sure what they send for clutches and stuff, 5 borgwarner frictions and plain steels held fine in my forward, set clearance at .020-.025. They will prolly send an alto kit for the reverse (or direct), if the steels are the kolenes with the small oval holes cut in the plates, toss them in the trash as the holes will tear the friction material. You can use a std thickness kolene without the holes, but will need some plates cut etc to get it to fit. I'm gonna use std plain steels when I go back with my build.
Endplay is a big deal, teflon sealing rings are a must.
Have no idea on their brake set up, it should have instructions on how to adj the band etc, just follow their reccomendation and it should be fine.
I will have a detailed build up when I go back together with mine, I have some plates gettting machined and some other stuff on order, so it may be a few weeks before I begin it.
What are you using for a pan? The deeper thick cast alum pan is a must as well due to the fact the pan acts like a girdle and keeps the case from flexing as the bands try to push it apart with the raised pressures.
