Hey everyone,

Looking to pick up a 6spd to replace the auto. Been looking at a few but thought I'd see if anyone on here has one they're looking to sell

Thanks

I've had mine loosely for sale for quite a while. I'm sure you could find and ad on here or look at my "build thread"

I'm in Michigan. Looked at one yesterday near Indy that wasn't in very good shape. I have a post on the Facebook group as well

If you're willing to travel it will open up your options, I made a 3,000 mile round trip to get mine.

I'll just leave this here... Maybe I've posted on your Facebook post before.

Sean,

I love your car but its more than I am looking to spend. I will definitely keep it in mind though. How many miles?

153k and literally just blew the motor this morning after posting this. Completely out of nowhere too, no signs of anything wrong then bad misfiring, tons of blue smoke, shut it off and when trying to restart it it cranked over an then locked up. I'm glad no one had bought it because I would have felt awful.

Edit: I over exaggerated, looks to be just a stuck injector.

I take it back, looking like might just be a stuck injector and caused it to partially hydrolock. Found cylinder 7 full of fuel, go it cleared out and will need to do a compression check to make sure there's no issues there. Sorry, didn't mean to take over this thread.
