Hey,

I found a gt for 800 but here are the problem....

If the turbo is rattling, what could it be?
How much are the turbo upr grades? I am thinking of getting the rx7 turbo but what other fuel and intake mods should i get?


The auto trans is bad, how much could i expect to pay for a new trans to be put in...I heard on probetalk that the gearing for the N/A would be great on a GT but wouldn't last long, what do you guys think?

You mean the one on ebay? The turbo is probably bad and needs replacement. I don't know about prices for a fix.
The tranny could be had from a wrecking yard for mabye $300? Thats what my local yard charged my friend for a tranny for his Chevy Truck, so it might be a different price for the MX6. I would suggest swapping in a manual tranny. The N/A tranny would last long, since it isn't designed to handle the turbo's torque.

I would stay away from an auto unless you plan a manual swap. That can be a pain with new computer and everything.

New computer not needed for the swap. Rebuilds for the auto can be very expensive. I've heard as low as 1100 and as high as 2300.
