    Should I sell the 3000GT or fix it?

    Now that I have my Stealth, I am definitely WILLING to sell the 3000GT even though it is SO nice, and I will miss how well it drives and handles... It is a LOT more "showroom" than the TT.... Also, I was gonna swap the ATX for an MTX, and I even have the MTX and all the parts to do the swap, but the ATX might still be ok in it with just a little work. (needs end clutch and I have a shift kit ready to go in) I could actually continue to drive it with the OD turned off with zero problems, but I bought the stealth to drive while I did the swap. I just don't want it to sit here and collect dust waiting for me to fix the trans if someone wants to buy it... If I am selling, should I fix the ATX, or do the swap? I would include both transmissions and all parts with it either way. I welcome your thoughts...

    Depends on your time and willingness to do the work to get the job done I'd say. If you're not going to have the time to do the swap in a reasonable fashion, I'd sell it.

    Sell the Stealth, 3000GTs look better

    I kid, I go with the above advice. Adding the swap parts to the sale will get you little to no more than you want for the car, but will get you money on its own. I'd fix and sell separately
    Current cars: 94 SL-AWD, 95 VR4, 94 VR4 (parts car), 95 VR4 Spyder (fixing)
    Past cars: 93TT-Parted, 92TT-Parted, 94NA-Parted, 95TT-Parted, 93SL-Parted, 91VR4-Sold, 91VR4-Sold
    STEALTHS ARE LIKE A TWIN BROTHER, GOOD FOR PARTS!!

    Can you afford to spend money on both cars? If not, I'd pick one and focus on that. A lot of times when people take on two projects they don't finish either.

    -Chris Cessna's Stock short block Evo 8: 9.76@150 Worlds Fastest Stock Motor Evo 8 and First Stock Block In The 9's!
    -Shawna's DD Evo 8: 9.97@143.88 Best MPH of 145 Full leather interior, A/C, navigation, stock brakes, cruisin 9's in style
    -Cory's Stock 7 bolt talon: 10.3@136 No crank walk here...
    -STM Stock turbo/motor Stealth RT: 10.95@127 Worlds Quyickest/Fastest and most powerful Stock turbo/ motor 3S
    -James STM built Pump gas Evo8 stock motor: 10.2@137 Stock long block, and only on pump gas!

    Can't let it go for cheap... $2000 before I fix, $3000 If it runs 100% I know how awesome this car is... It's not flawless but I just did the 120k service, and aside from very minor body dings, drivers seat bolster, and the aforementioned transmission this is a 100% car and everything works 100% super clean, drives like new! I also did t-stat, silicone hoses, new plugs (cooler plugs to run nitrous) Nitrous is hooked up, but I will be taking it out to sell separately... I never really used the nitrous because I was fighting transmission problems so the car was never thrashed. Air is ice cold, It has almost new tires, brand new High performance trans cooler, and will have a new battery... It's a perfect clean slate to start a project or use as daily driver!
