I'm trying to explore all my options and minimize the damage.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Is it conceivable at all that a cvt trans from a Sentra could be slapped in? Are there any wizard mechanics who could slap in a standard 4 spd trans and modify the ecu?
How on God's sun blanched earth can I discover any alternative other than junking the car and losing $1700 minimum. I cannot buy a $1400 trans..
