    I am going to use the Holy Grahl of Swap info checklist to get this thing right the first time, SO I may be calling for some parts to get shipped to me.

    Is there any upullit type junkyards near you. The one near me charges $100 bucks for a T5 ( the V8 ones never make it out to the yard). You should be able to walk away with all the parts to do the swap for probably $150 and a half days work. My yard also offers a warranty for about $20 extra. If the tranny is crap you bring it back and pull another one. But then again if you have one rebuilt you know it will last a while.

    Unfortunately, those kits will only fix a trans that isn't broke...no hard parts are included, kinda like a rering kit for an engine. Just one synchro pack (say, the 3-4 pack for example) is 60 bux. The 1-2 synchro pack is 350!!!!

    you are the ones that said the trans is diecent to use >HMMMMMM.
    I have no reason to believe that the trans is bad. I understand about what you are saying. I am looking to buy this and to save for a newer WC for later on.

    Sounds crazy but...when I brought the last merkur (stinger's) home I pulled it with the lightning and used my tow dolly. It didn't slow the truck that much. I honestly believe I could out run an N/A pretty easy.:nonono:
