I have a 2.1 litre on my chevy malibu. Did you have a transmission cooler added?

I guess you used a rope/wire to winch it into the water and back, instead of driving it down the ramp as you would with t truck?

I have seen alot of boats being towed by small cars in europe, I guess you make due with what you got sometimes, though it can't be good on a car...
