Trannys in the early model vr-4s cost 7k USD to buy since they can't be rebuilt. Im not sure about the later model cars tho.

btw, the base 3kgt is not the best choice for 9k, but to each his own.

I have always been under the impression that EFI and FI mean fuel injected. I suppose FI left the door open for the mechanical type.

Yes, but there is a permanent fix for the Eclipse problem... the VR4 trans problem just keeps recurring...

Give me an example of an injected car where the injection was denoted by "E"

4a-gE
sr20dEt
2jz-gtE
and so forth the list goes on in nissan and toyota cars.

and in regards to me refering to FI as forced induction, that's because my old man always said "FI and NA" to define the breathing type of the engine.

also, EFI, i know is Electronic Fuel Injection, but i've always refered to that as all types of fuel injection, EXCEPT FOR CARBY!, because i've always called the carbarettor a carby or a sucker.

Will is still get the spare parts?

Till what mileage does a stick one work good ?
Is the maintanence going to be costly? if so how much $$$$$$$$$?

$9,000 for a 60k mi. 3000gt is a great price

Yes that is a bargin take it and run but replacment parts and service can get quit costly. Like for a new headlight is $500.00 a piece. and upgrades are also more expensive but there great cars. Cory
