Agreed; the 4.6 will last forever.

The tranny leaking could be the driveshaft causing issues; it happens.

An 02 JY tranny is cheap, and replacing the seal is easy while the tranny is out.

It will probably need all new rubber everywhere, so that's close to a grand in parts.

But $400+$1000+$300+300 (Car, suspension, tranny, driveshaft) =$2000; That is a great deal for a brand new feeling V8 car.

Add a PI intake, heads, and cams (~$200-300) with a dual exhaust(~$200), and it will really move.

It will eat most things you could buy for $10k.

Having a spare in case anything happens is good too, lol.
