Well, the instructions say it takes 12 hours to get the transaxle out of an Exige. This was about right considering I had no lift. My son is thankful it didn't break while he was driving it. I shipped the transaxle off to Blackwatch Racing on Saturday. Fred's notable quote from our conversation, "After the rebuild, we might see this transaxle again some day but it won't be for 3rd or 4th!" A fun part of this hobby is working with experts who know exactly what to do and how to do it!
