5 hours for a car that you can't even get decent pictures of?

Not hardly.

Especially for one with known frame damage.

Double especially for one that's had either a motorswap or a turbo added (intercooler = turbo, USDM 240s all had N/A KAs).

I think the trade was a mistake, unless your DSM was more screwed up than you let on.

What he said. Also a bone stock 240SX is not exactly "fast" and one that has frame damage is just asking for trouble.

As everyone else has said don't do it. As it seems that you are going to ignore the advice given by those here, good luck you are going to need it.

Nobody does a trade to get the raw end of the deal. There's some reason why he wants your boring slow eclipse with a screwed up linkage instead of his crashed 240sx.

true dat..

And seriously.. your shifting problem is one broken shift cable!

DOES NOT EQUAL smashed front end OR $500.

Against what EVERYONE said, he did the trade.
