4spd Clutch Pack

I went to the trans place today to see what was up with my auto. It flares between 2nd and 3rd. The guy said it was a clutch pack and the box would need to come out of the car and be completely overhauled. With a price tag of $1500, it's something I can't afford. He reackons its still got plenty of life left in it, it's just more of an annoyance than anything. Can a clutch pack be replaced without an overhaul?

I am seriously considering putting a manual in it. I know a wrecker who will supply the parts and box, if I give him the 4spd. Can someone post the complete conversion procedure and all the part required? I remember seeing it on here somewhere, but can't find it for the life of me.

I also have the problem of flaring between 2nd and 3rd. So I took it to ford and they told me the same thing (clutch pack).
I changed the transmission fluid last week and it seems to be better. It only flares once in the morning and thats it.
If it gets worse then I will consider changing the clutch pack myself. Shouldn't be to hard with the right workshop manual.

Flaring is where the motor "revs" a little bit between gear changes. For example, shifting from 2nd to 3rd it will rev about 100-200rpm before going into 3rd.

I also have a 4spd and it also flares when shifting from 3rd to 4th, and in econ mode. In normal mode its fine.

Im just suspecting a faulty solenoid(i hope). I'm getting the car serviced tommorow so ill see if they can do a diagnostic on the ecu/trans.

Hmmmm this sounds similar to mine. I get flare in 1-2, 2-3rd gears a bit.. tho im pretty sure mine is the line pressure related coz when u throw it into power mode the slipping is minimized. I was told i needed a new S5 solenoid... so i hope its not my clutch packs...
