Hey you look local, what shop did you happen to use?

Swap into what? The problem is 2 fold. Assuming you get it to bolt up, how would you get it to talk to the ECM, BCM or whatever CM it needs to talk to for full functionality? Also, you'd have to put up with people who will tell you it isn't a sports car because it doesn't have a stick and many are not able to stand up to peer pressure.

Headed to the transmission shop tomorrow.. We will see what said fck it! and decided to explode. The tranny guy doesn't think it's the torque converter based on my descriptions of what happened and the symptoms.. I'm inclined to believe him but we won't know until they get it up on the lift tomorrow.
