Bart, sorry to hear about these complications. Hope you'll get the V8
5sp. eventually.
OTOH, may I ask you this obvious question: why are you not considering a
'91 200?
Roughly the same level of performance, less classy but far more
tuneable. It also has a better gas mileage and parts are plentiful and a
lot cheaper than for a V8.

Happy New Year!
