What kind of mileage have you gotten?

Im curious what kind of mileage you all get when you replaced the timing belt, clutch and tranny.


Is it English? Does it moo?

104,300 and counting and I haven't replaced my timing belt yet. With my clutch, I noticed a drop in mileage since I had the flywheel lightened, over reving. But then again I have a GT.

how did you manage to rack up so many miles on a 93? My 93 only has 118k.

34,000 on my 97. All original belts. First ATX transmission died at 11,000. Second one is still kicking (knocking on wood, crossing fingers, and preying)!

90,000.......but I believe that the people that had the car before me were RETARDS, and used to drag with this 2.0. Obviously, they also had NO idea how to use a STICK SHIFT.

My clutch start fading fast as early as 40k miles, unfortunately it took 1 year to get my aluminum flywheel, so I had over 50k before I installed my Clutchmasters Stage III and UR flywheel.

Enjoy.

I have 108k on original clutch. It's slipping now. I changed the timing belt at 94k because i didn't know when the last owner replaced it. Oh, mine's a 93 too.
