Couldn't you get blue ones to match the car?

Check tcc solenoid, valve chest, and clutch itself.
that code pops up when the tcm activates the solenoid, sees current but still detects slip in the converter (engine revs vs input revs at transmission)

Give it a slug of AT-205 and see if that helps, could be a bit if grunge in the solenoid passages or a leaking tcc o ring on the input shaft

Transmission sealant seemed to fix it, then started throwing the blinking O/D light again. i'll drive it until it gives out then swap in a new transmission. it shifts fine and no issues. wonder if they additional power is to blame.

So in my location I couldn’t pass inspection because of the transmission code. Going to likely need to open it up and replace the solenoids. Will update on this as I figure things out.

Change oil first, or drain it and see what its like, could just need a freshen with fluid to get past inspection

2 fluid changes already 1 fluid change after only about 15 miles hoping to fix it. the the transmission additive with the current fluid. the one i took out was actually a bit dirty which surprised me since was only about 15 miles.

Going to try swapping back the OEM crank pulley. I have a suspicion that my code related to the transmission may be because of a voltage issue with the under drive pulley not letting the alternator provide the correct level. I replaced the alternator with a new one and saw that the blinking overdrive light has gone away more consistently after driving at highways speeds, but comes back on after slowing down. If thats the issue, I'll put it on just to pass my inspection and put it back on right after.

You should be able to keep the underdrive main pully by switching to a smaller pully on the altenator

Side note, the brakes work EXTREMELY well in racing conditions. They were hot enough to burn the white paint on the wheels. see the previous picture.

Just for additional info, my best self timed lap was 107 seconds. and was getting faster each lap I only got about 5 laps in total because of the overheating issue. Half of a lap I had to go slow because lost all my coolant. I lost coolant 2 times so lots of downtime in between sessions. But theses are the times compared to the rest of the cars. Remember I'm using an Automatic. lol I wasnt able to participate in the official timings.

So took out on a short drive to test the car with the oem crank pulley and the car started overheating. Somethings wrong with the cooling. Going to order a new thermostat. Noticed the fan didn’t come on as well.

Replaced the thermostat. It was stuck open as it was a fail safe design. I forgot to take a picture. I’ll get one tomorrow. Replaced the lower coolant hose clamps with a screw type clamp instead of the oem style clip type. Put the oem radiator cap on to do some test drives. The new thermostat is an oem replacement AISIN thermostat 82°C
