    For anyone enjoying this story, I got the car back together and timing chain guides done (no more noise!). The car now moves under its own power... after you rev it to 3k rpm wait a second and eventually the car starts moving. Then you just drive at 3k rpm the entire time like a CVT. COOL! It also chatters when it first starts moving.

    Dropping it off at a transmission shop tomorrow. I can't pull this thing a 4th time. I hurt....

    Is there any chance at all that the shift linkage isnít perfectly aligned right? And you shifted through all gears numerous times and re checked the oil? Thatís all I got?

    What Bob said. And you're checking the fluid level with the car running? Sometimes the simplest things get overlooked when a person is exhausted.
    You "feel" the difference because you want to "feel" the difference. Since you just spent money on the upgrade you "have" to feel the difference

    I'm looking to eliminate the double pump process I have to follow right now to get the pedal hard

    I did check the oil while running multiple times while getting it to the correct level. The shifter linkage adjuster I checked by watching it move. It appears to be working correctly. I find it hard to believe it wouldn't just POP into place once it starts moving. I had it towed to a local trans shop. They are going to make sure it isn't easy stuff before diving into the guts. I have had my fill of transmissions. Maybe I'll get real lucky and it will just be the shifter linkage

    Verdict is in. Clutches are fried from 1 mile of driving. The trans company pulled the pan and its full of clutch... At least this time they will verify it works and I don't have to do anymore work.
