Default Free 6 speed (miatanet)

No affiliation but hey may be worth to someone.

Dudes asking for someone to install his motor/turbo in exchange for a free 6 speed as a payment.

If anyone wants a 6spd trans please read - MX-5 Miata Forum

GET IT^ Six speed is ****, a bit loose, but with the six speed and 4.30 my 94vvt is a rocket.


Almost free he wants someone to put his engine and turbo kit in for the 6 speed. Was kinda hoping it was Cali or Vegas local but East coast:(

Working on it lol... If he can find a way to get it towed down to me then I will be doing the job and getting the free 6spd and a free blown up 1.8 motor... Which is awesome because I have a scrap yard directly next to my work. Ill throw the motor in a company pick-up and get a couple bucks for the block

He has a voodooII kit... On links apparently. I am going to write up something and have him sign that I assume no liability for anything that happens to his car

Car, new motor/trans are now in my possession. I'llpost pics of the car/turbo set-up tomorrow. Its pretty bad...

Tonight I split the 6spd from the new "used" motor... He said it has 20k on it but judging by the amount of grease on it and torn shifter turret boot... I'd guess it's around 100k. whatever. Im going to throw the new motor in it and throw the turbo kit together and hand him back the keys... Not much I can do other than that. I hope it dosen't blow up on the way home.. I'm 99% sure it's on aids

You got this. What kind of band-aids does he have? Just do your best to make it work right with what he has. If he doesn't have a wideband tell him to disconnect the WG because you couldn't possibly tune it, or be sure of its state of tune. If he wants to risk it that's on him.

I'm pretty clueless about bandaids... All I know is that it has a stock MAF in line with the intercooler piping, a FPR, tons of red vacuum lines, and a electronic box in the glove box that says Link... Not sure if it works or not
