the headgasket blew around 3 months ago and i got that fixed up just enough to keep me running.
would apreciate some advice, thanks guys
it costs around 2g to get converteted to manual (rough est) .
your engine might be gutless for alot of reasons 1 that comes to mind is that the exhaust has shot through.
but if u get a small car give it 200k before motor says by by.
also keep in mind that its alot easier to source spare parts for falcons than it is for small jap cars.
but all up if u have 10g sitting about u could get your ed going real good and look good as well
