I've looked on kijiji and i found a 2005 2.3 with a 140,000km on it with a blown auto tranny for 800$, he wants the full car gone. im pretty sure i can bolt a manual tanny to it? i thought the bottom ends of the 2.0 are quite strong, but i could be wrong. i kinda like the high revs on my car where i produce the hp. but i could just change the rings while the heads off?
