While I am not a stranger to this gathering, and blown HG @ 142k mile necessitated some immediate action (it hydro-locked) there are some things that are recently being done to my '91 5-speed that I request feed-back regarding. Car is a black (exterior) on black leather (interior) :

I understand that the tranny may need to be rebult in the near future (from my observations, it has already been done at least once). As well, the exhaust leaves me wanting something better.

As one can readily see, I've chosen to keep the set-up on this machine relativley stock, with a few beefier after-market solutions.

My query is this :

Is there anything I'm missing? All of the specific fluids and gasket materials for this to come together are in place...I'm just wondering if there isn't something I have missed..as far as parts..Shop is tearing it down now (and no, I' not afraid to dig into it myself, I'm just short on time and space.):cool:

Even though I also have a '94 SC auto in my garage awaiting a front-end re-build, I sorely miss my 5-speed....Jeeps just don't cut it as an alternate form of transportation :rolleyes:
