I was saving my pennies to have Swedish Relics rebuild the B20 in my 142, but I can't trust the m47 with the amount of noise it's making. I bought a t5 with Deeworks adapter from a local. Added a Summit short shifter, brass shift cup, and yoshifab clutch. The 240 driveshaft will be adapted to mount to the T5.

The t5 is in the car, but it won't stay in 1st. This is one of the times I'm happy to be paying someone else to work on my car. The trans is coming back out and bronze shift fork bushings are being installed. I did manage to make an adapter to use the Volvo shift knob.

Without it being all put together it looks janky, but I took it for a spin around the block.

This summer marked 17 years of ownership. That means my car has now been with me for more than half my life.
