More crap with the turbo I'm rebuilding at work. Someone there mentioned the torx converter has to be put on the tranny and then have the engine put in and bolt it up from the tranny. The guy said the car wouldnt move if I didnt do it that way.

I just wanted to double check if I can't just bolt the torx converter to the block and just put it back in the way I took it out, or If I have to do it the other way (putting torx converter onto the tranny first)?

Thanks to who ever responds

If you put it on the block first you run the risk of screwing up the pump. You need to put the TC on the tranny and turn it till it locks in on the shaft. Thats the only way to do it, sorry.

Yes, I've learned the "hard way". You will need to have patience when mating the tranny up to the engine. Spinning the TC will help line it up and when thats done you can tighten up the bolts thru the hole where the starter goes.
