    What’s a spare? None of my cars have one. Live life on the edge men.

    If I had to choose between and engine and trans I would take the trans everyone. Hate the 4 speed.

    Got a bunch of parts in, 620 trans mount, reverse switch, gasket and seals, shifter pin + bushings, clutch, pp and a bunch of other crap. Figure I might was well drop the 5 speed in before I even attempt to swap the engine as I have little to no interest in swapping everything at once. When will I get around to do that who knows.

    Why? Mainer already found ones that would work for our truck, why would I scour the web for the same ones when he already has a link to them? And aren't you the one who said to post a part number or link so it would benefit others? I think you actually corrected one of my posts to point out a difference to make it easier for anyone else searching for it. But here are you doing the complete opposite. What gives? You ok?

    Gorilla are legit. The stuff we buy on ebay is China special. Hell they’re cheap enough that you can just buy a new set when they rust. 😎

    @datzenmike We already established what this trans is and that you had a hard on for it. @wayno I agree but I don't buy things under the impression they are painted and ready to go only to have to paint them and possibly slot them to make them work.

    Got the shifter and improvised with a screwdriver to shift it into all the gears and it shifts great, doesn't get hung up on anything so I think I scored with this trans. I need to order a shift knob, shifter pin bushing kit, seal gasket kit and some GL-4 and a 620 trans mount. I got redeyes trans mount and am a little disappointed with it, before it ever got here he told me I may have to slot the holes as his laser cutter was having issues. Then when it got here it was unpainted and didn't look all nice and clean like his pictures advertise it as. Time will tell if I need to slot it but at the very least I will have to prime and paint it as well. What I got vs what he advertises them as:

    It is now, but it wasn't back then when it first came stateside.

    Haha. They aren't all bad. I had a brand new 2001 WRX when they came out that was modded to the gills. Would I want to be seen driving one today? No but back then it was the bees knees.

    That's exactly what it means. Other than washing and vacuuming it I don't, nor have I ever, spent anytime cleaning engine bays on any car I have ever owned.

    I get that but I don’t care for the upkeep.

    I would look into it if you are worried about having to pass anything.

    My 1971 521

    Then I got no interest in that. I’ll stick with new OEM parts.

    My 1971 521

    yeah I seen that. Do polished parts hold up? I mean everything eventually gets dirty and although I would like the engine bay to look titties I do use this fucker a fair amount.

    They don’t have historic plates up there?? MD does for anything 20 years or older. It’s supposed to be for classic cars that are only driven for specific purposes (car shows repairs etc..) but people abuse the shit out of it on 20 year old piles. Basically if it’s registered as historic you don’t have to have inspections or emissions. My buddy has a built 2001 e46 M3 that won’t pass emissions but next year he can register it as historic and not worry about any of that.

    Yeah but its nasty as hell, trying to put shiny new shit on this motor mang.

    I need one for my L20B so I am assuming L16 L18 L20 all use the same one?

    Haha I was wondering it was just me, nice to know it isn't. I guess when you have all the shit he does he figures he will get customers regardless of his attitude.
