Okay, I have a stock '90 T-bird (not SC, not LX, just the bog standard bird), with a 3.8 and automatic. It blows. Can't do a burnout, can barely keep up with my friend's Beretta. My car has 201K miles on it, and the transmission is almost ready to puke (OD is already trash). I want to a.) do some transmission work, b.) do something to improve the exhaust, and c.) find as many ways to make it go faster for cheap as I can. Any ideas? First of all, what's everybody's opinion about transmission fixing? I have a lift and the ability to pull the transmission and work on it, but what's the best way to go about repairing it? Just get another one and do a swap? Get one from a junkyard, put shift kits and such on it, and pop it in? How much is that going to cost me? Anybody?
