I've been looking for a mark 8 for a while now, i found one. nearly perfect but the guy sold it right after i looked at it. i found another one, its got short of 118,000 miles. but the bad, the transmission is shot. it's for $600. so i was wondering, since i really have no idea about these cars. how hard is it to swap transmissions? whats the horse power of this motor, oh yea its a 1994 also. he also said the air ride was replaced with shocks. if i buy it, what up grades to the transmission would you rectmend? i've got a heavy foot.. so any thoughts? is it worth it?
