well yea, iv seem and been around to help with 2 removals of engines/trans and 1 engine removal so im pretty sure im 80% know what to do with that

But im just trying to figure how to jack the car up high enough and also how to support it.

iv never seen or done a trans removal form under the car.



*edit* ahhh ok i never looked for that in tech info before. nice

Put the car up on stands in the garage, pull the cover off the ssei and go to town removing the dead tranny, you got two cars so I wouldnt think your out of luck, attempt the swap yourself even if it takes a few weeks, its not as if the ssei is a porsche that cant be driven in snow or rain, best of luck, it seems you have alot of connections from other members here that can help guide your way, if you do it do a writeup it will make the project alot better, ( I followed your guide on the suspension stuff that helped a ton)

Good luck with the tranny

cool, thanks don. I just get scared and worried a lot when taking on something this big when iv never done it by my self and dont have someone next to me that has done it.

But i guess now that i just have the $250 to spend on the trans i could use the other 200-250 to buy some things that will make it a lot easier to do this. like another good floor jack and some taller jack stands

Don, Boosty, others i have phone numbers for... suspect a few phone calls over the next few weeks

Yup, dont worry, ill make sure mines all charged up

This week im going to work on clearing more out of the Garage and also get the two Propain tanks filled for my heater

also im going to see about getting something to cover the roof(rafters) in my garage to keep it warming while im out then so i dont have to keep the heater running all the time.

Run the heater more and keep the airflow. A buddy and I did what you are suggesting with plastic sheeting. The fumes do accumulate too quickly.
