Hello everyone, I am a old muscle car guy, I still have my 1969 Camaro with a Big Block hooked to a old school dougnash clutchless 5 speed in it. I bought my first wrx a few weeks ago. It is a 2002 with mods with 156k on the clock. I am the 3rd owner which the guy I got it from bought it with 4000k miles on it and had it for 10 years. The first owner bought it while waiting on his STI to come in. I bought it locally here in Lancaster county Pennsylvania. Seen it on craigslist advertised with a transmission with 3rd gear wiped out of it and called about it, after talking to the man that owned it a bit I decided to have a look at it. After seeing how well it was taken care and seeing all the mods and service records on the car, I decided to purchase it from him. I have the trans apart and will be replacing the bad gears and the bearing that caused it all along with some other bearings and seals while it is apart. If anyone has any advice on anything related to this or anything in general to my car please post it up. Also could use some knowledge on where a good shop would be to take it for repairs and tuning that i cant do myself. I live in Lancaster couny Pa about 4 miles west of the lancaster/chester county line.Thanks!
