    Don’t know many people in Florida but I bet we can walk you through working on it. They’re relatively easy to work on. Expect the heater core!

    Got a place to work on it and a little free time?

    I second what Tiggie said.

    Iím a little far in Naples but I can tell you the car culture down here is skewed towards imports, luxery cars and super cars. So everything down here is expensive. I called around for prices on a gear swap and the lowest quote I got was over 800 bucks, and that was if I supplied the gears. Iím sure Tampa is a little better though.
