Very true...

It does seem that the transmission is more of a consumable than would be preferred, but I guess would be expected as it is a stock part when compared to the built engines and what not most people are running.

At least transmissions and differentials are relatively cheap and plentiful (I came from a BMW -- M Roadster, to be exact, where nothing was cheap or plentiful).

I've been on the look out for cheap 6 speeds locally while regularly perusing the threads that have TII swap information.

I could make the adapter plate, but I don't know if I want to go through the trouble with everything else

Probably just stick with squirreling up some 6 speeds
