You might even end up losing money doing a tranny swap. Buy one with the tranny you want. Trust me there is a hell of a lot of things you and your father can work on. It just makes more sense to buy one that has what you want in it fix it up/perfomancize it. Instead of shelling out bills for a manny tranny you could be doing cams/flywheel/turbo upgrade/etc. Trust.patteh said:Well, me an' dad want to get one so we can work on it... i'm kinda new at all this, so could you explain what is involved in changing the transmition?
