the 545 is a weak excuse for a transmission.
It has no overdrive and no lockup converter.
I had one in a one ton pickup with a strong 5.9 cummins and i could flash (make the convert slip) at any speed,when the converter slips the tranny temps go sky high and all of the ATF blows out of the dip stick.
Let me tell you,when hot oil blows onto a hot turbo things get real interesting!
Mike h and i spend a lot of time talking about that tranny,which is really close in size to a turbo 400 GM trans.
