Should I tell him to just see if he can find a WC? It looks like the rebuild for the one I have is as much as a brand new WC. I'm just a daily driver kind of position and want durability. Not trying to make a drag car.
the 4 banger trans will USUALLY hold up to normal dd'ing. but its still not as strong as a v8 trans. also just cause its a 4cylinder trans doesnt mean its not WC. your gonna have to make the call depending on your budget. obviously the best thing to do is get something better. but your call man.
