if you are gonna pay 3k for trans, but you can get a better motor AND trans for 4k...

why are they even thinking about the tranny?
the new motor has a ton less miles, it should only be about 60k at the most on it... and it has a newer trans, ecu, and all that good stuff...

it should be a no brainer...

ask them why they want to spend 3k to replace 1/2 the drivetrain, if in say, 10k, you will blow the motor or have to rebuild it?

why not spend the extra cash now, as security later? it sucks to pay a ton over and over, and i have... i never had the cash to do a fat swap, so i rebuilt a motor twice, and the shop fucked it up, so i had to get it rebuilt again... i know how you feel...

$3k for a tranny install?!?!?

My h23 tranny cost $300 shipped, ACT XTSS $415 shipped, CM 8lb flywheel $305 shipped. I installed them myself.
