Another issue......

As some of you have followed my previous couple posts it's been difficult and it just hasn't stopped.I got my car back from Braman and since then it just hasn't been the same. Shifting from 1st,2nd,3rd and 4th gears feel like shit. The shop foreman and I went for a ride the day of me getting my car back. The tranny oil was just changed amonth ago. What do i do?

People on the forum would like to help.
What feels wrong with the car, we all have a sht load of ideas but describe the problem.
From a previous post it looks like you drove with low oil, but that is all I can tell.
So now the transmission seems weird, is it a manual or an auto?

Manual. It's knotchy and mushy going into gears. I just had the SSK taken off back 3 months ago. And since I've loved the direct and feel of the box. I just had the tranny oil changed about a month ago, but I dont know where to go from here. And now I got it back and it feels like crap.

Bring it back, throw them the keys, leave them your number, and tell them to call you when it feels like the new one sitting on the lot...

Warranty or not, I wouldn't drive a car that I didn't enjoy or thought something with it was wrong. If they also worked on it to improve it by changing the fluid, or whatever, and it didn't help, I wouldn't have taken the car back.

Find out what kind of tranny fluid was used. Was the filter changed as well?

Maybe they used the wrong kind of fluid?

You need to provide more info. Is your clutch fully engaging? You took the SSK out and put the OEM back...is that right?
Def check on the tranny fluid...was this the first change? Does shifting improve as the car warms up or at different RPMs? etc...
