ok i think i finally figured out how to post my pics

96gt
mods
70mm throttle body
cai
Upper plenum

debating on if i should keep or sell and get another one
hit a deer a while back so had to put new fender and door on
that why the color is off on passenger side

if i decide to keep it needs transmission work
and i have 4.10s and mac exhaust sitting in the garage still needing to be installed

Let me know what ya think

Nice rims. and whats wrong with the tranny? If it has any sentimental value id keep it and put on that exhaust ASAP. Also is it an automatic? Cuz if its a manual 4.10's might be too much, 3.73's would be perfect but 4.10s are good for autos. Go get a bearing set and get them gears in too!

that blows u got an auto... ok forget everything i said go sell it and get a manual.Even sell the 4.10 gears and get some 3.73 then put in the MAC exhaust in your new 96 manual GT. Also i dunno if the auto tranny for our 96's have a clutch or torque converter but that could be the issue with your car instead of the tranny. Either way thats a costly repair so go sell it while it still works cuz auto trannys are probably way harder to work on then manuals!

Edit: Put back on the stock rims too if u sell it and save them bad boys for the next one!

just post a thread on your trans issue, theres a lot of hard core auto guys on here and im sure one of them will be able to point you in the right direction. just make sure you give a lot of details on the car and issue.

unless u really enjoy driving an automatic muscle car i would stop wasting money on fixing that thing and take off all your mods get a 96 manual in good running condition and throw all your mods on that... then instead of spending your money to fix whats not working right u can spend that money to upgrade! i cant wait for the day im done fixing things that are broken or breaking and i can start dropping it into some upgrades! altho i did just get my magnaflow tru-x pipe so i guess im fixing/upgrading at the same time :p

ive never understood why someone would go through all the effort of taking everything off the car, selling it then re-installing on a new car just cause of a tranny. if youre gonna do all that work, find a totaled 5spd car, get your parts and do the swap.

i say keep the car and do your thing. youll lose money on it if you sell it, the door and fender dont match so thats a downer to a buyer. the car looks pretty clean. i say paint her, fix her, mod her.
