    Welcome.
    No ... I'm not arguing with you ... I'm just explaining why I'm right ...

    Now go ... and whatever you do ... have a safe trip!

      Don’t know many people in Florida but I bet we can walk you through working on it. They’re relatively easy to work on. Expect the heater core!

      Got a place to work on it and a little free time?

        I second what Tiggie said.

        Iím a little far in Naples but I can tell you the car culture down here is skewed towards imports, luxery cars and super cars. So everything down here is expensive. I called around for prices on a gear swap and the lowest quote I got was over 800 bucks, and that was if I supplied the gears. Iím sure Tampa is a little better though.
