About how much is it to rebuild a Manual Transmisson? Mine has 135k miles and i have plans it about 6 months to drop a KLZE. What would you all do? Get a new one or rebuild?

rebuild. dont know how much, but chances are not EVERYTHING in your tranny is bad, so definitely cheaper. and a breeze to do along with the engine swap same time. plus do a clutch and flywheel.
i'm also told that a 5th gear from an escort can be put in which will lower cruise RPMs and greater top speed. but you'll usually have to downshift to pass. it makes it a true overdrive. our 5th gear can still be used for passing at 70+mph. not sure how much diff the escort one is, so look into it.
