I was starting to get really down on myself about the car, I have been dying to get it done, and I remember getting ready to have it "finished" this time last year. Anyway was just starting to go insane especiallyl after getting screwed on the tranny. So while I am saving up for a G-force, I figured I will go to the junkyard and get a cheap T5 for $50 and stick it in the car and drive it till I grenade it and then just swap in the G-force tranny I will have sitting in the garage. So I go the junkyard all I could find was a couple 4 banger trannies so I figure I will get one of those, and swap out input shafts cause I have one. I then go to work to see if anyone can pick up my shift on Sunday I start talking with one of my co-workers and I forgot he had a 5.0 out of commission because of the tranny. I was going to be helping him swap out his T5 for a TKO, he just said to take the tranny he doesn't want it. The only problem it had was grinding going into 3rd gear, and eventually got stuck in gear. Sounds like a synchro problem so I might as well put $100 into it and have a decent tranny, man this is a good rebound from being screwed over so hopefully the Mach will be done within a week or so.
