    I would LOVE to see a shop that is a DSM shop. Hell they don't exist in the middle of the country I guess.
    Its my shop or NO SHOP for me on these machines. Just gotta understand them and know them. Everytime I think I've seen it all, a new one says "Have you seen this siht yet???"
    :ohdamn:

    They are in Southern California, so it shouldn't be too far for him.

    I wouldn't suggest owning a DSM unless you can do 95% of the work yourself. These cars almost always need an incredible amount of attention and you will go broke paying for labor much less parts.

    I asked this same question years ago. Then, when I discovered how much people charge for labor (and with me being a college kid) I took my own nuts, borrowed a crap ton of tools, and did my own work on the dirt alley behind my place LOL. It was miserable, yes, but damn has it made me proud.

    However, I haven't done anything crazy like pulling the block or anything. You'd need a garage for that sort of thing. I don't need homeless people steeling bits and pieces just to hoard for who knows what reason LOL.

    As for the work needed done so far what I have found is a really bad power steering leak from the return hose and don't know if I should de power or fix the leak. I also found an exhaust leak at the exhaust manifold with a stud that's broken :banghead: at the block.. My car is a stick fwd turbo. I'm sure most if not all of this I can do but just wanted to see if there were options out there for a reputable shop for these cars.
