It's always great to be able to to take the time to "blueprint" an assy of machinery. Everything ends up working so smoothly, whereas with a standard assembly line, you get what you get, depending on how careful the assembler was or how much time he was allowed to do the job.
With our Milano, the transaxle had to be torn apart and reassembled properly on warranty when the car was brand new, since it must have been a Friday or Monday product, having very obvious loose clearances everywhere inside, ie, just thrown together. Far too much on and off the throttle slop.
