Anyway, the GTB is working but smoke came from the power capacitor when I tried to give it throttle when the 10.5T locked down. I installed a new LRP 13.5T on the SC10 this morning and the GTB is working. Should I replace the power capacitor on the GTB since it released the magic blue smoke???? The GTB appears to be working properly now... should I send it back to Novak to see if there is anything internally wrong???
Thanks for the help!!
The GTBs should not be operated without the TransCap module installed; so, definitely replace the cap as soon as you can.
