Default Low mileage 5 speed and ACT HD or XD

Keep your eyes open for a low mileage 1.8 trans for me. No I didn't blow my trans but I've been thinking about it lately(not blowing it) and the trans I have has 300k miles on it so I'm not sure how long into the summer it'll last with those 270 horses.

And if I'm gonna have the trans off I might as well step up to a stronger clutch.

Looking for something local to NJ cuz I don't wanna pay shipping for a trans. By local I mean within 2-3 hours of 08742, maybe 4-5 if the price is right.

thanks bitches

I have my "old" 1.6 trans. around 150xxx miles. I know the 2-3 syncro or whatever is different but you can take it.

But I think you want something low mileage that'll last another 10 years, right?

aren't the gears really long in that? and i believe it needs a custom adapter plate to bolt up to the Miata block.

Got an Eclutchmasters Stage 1 pressure plate and sprung hub, 6 puck stage 3 disk, around 6000 miles. Had it balanced when the engine was rebuilt. PM me if you are interested.
