[DML] Re: transmission

Just a hint here but your driving technique may be the cause, not the
transmissions! The automatic is easy to "beat up" but the 5-speed can
take a lot of abuse behind a stock PRV and not get busted! Putting any
other transmission into a Delorean is a pretty large (read expensive)
undertaking. Your "best" choice now, since you have converted the car
to manual, is to rebuild or replace the manual transmission and modify
your driving style. Depending on how "busted up" the 5-speed is it may
be repairable. If it is not, a manual transmission is not all that
expensive. Go look over at dmcnews.com for parts.
