What to do....

I'm trying to figure out if its worth the money/hassel to get this car running. Right now the guy wants $2700 for it and he says the tranny is blown because it makes this loud clunking noise when it turns. I found a ys1 sir tranny for $500. So $500 for labour I'm assuming? $3700 when it's all done for this. Would you buy it and fix it?

yea i had that as well with my drive shafts im sure thats wud it wud be...maybe a ball joint??

i cudn't imagine turning effecting a tranny.

i dunno if i'd buy it because of the unknown problem, if i knew what the problem was then maybe..because it has some alright mods to it.

has the regular maintenance benn done to it?

when was the last major tune-up done?

y1 tranny is just as close as gears as the ys1.

That gsr is very rare and the re sell on those bad boys are good.

right now if my car gets stolen or write off i get 4100 back
