    Default MTX swap

    I want to do swap my ATX for an MTX, but not in the near future. Who in Texas would be up to it? and for how much

    -I dont have an MTX transmission available
    -I dont have any parts
    -I live with my GFs parents so you wouldn't be able to stay in the house
    -I dont have any special tools required

    This is just a survey to see who might I be counting on later.
    K&N Typhoon, Knock Mod, Borla Pro Xs w/2.25 pipe
    SR suspension, Pnp TB, 5spd swap, Luk Clutch kit, FR Pulley
    Alpine CDE 133BT, Sony Xplodes 6x9s and 6.5s, Kicker 650.4, Kicker 12" Comp sub.

Iwould highly recommend a jack, jackstands, impact gun, some good ratchets and sockets, and at least 1 buddy, preferabley 2-3 that halfway know what there doing and at least 2-3 solid days were your car can be down. Good luck doing this one day lol

    i just helped do this in 11 hours...and that was with a lot of running for parts/tools, BSing, and stopping to get a beer every so often. then again, brad and i know our way around a zx2 pretty well, and alex used to work at a junk yard....but still, we took our time

    DaviDawg would you come all the way from nc?

    I know nothing about swapping transmissions. Thats why I typed that. I am willing to pay. And for some reason, I trust you guys that are on this forum better than a shop. You guys KNOW these cars.
