I have a spare ar5 out of a 2wd 07 to 09 Colorado. I was told it was in good working condition, but I have never actually shifted the thing in a car. This with an adapter is about the cheapest manual setup you can get behind an LS. 


I also have a 2.2 Ecotec out of a 11 HHR. It had 170k and needed chains but still ran fine. Again I heard it run but never drove it. 


I'm moving in the next few months so look for more stuff!

Will those pieces bolt together?

With a Solstice bell housing, yes! I had planned on doing this in a Volvo but oil pan clearance was awful!

South Central Indiana. I could deliver between Indy and Louisville for beer money or beer!? :)

Would you ship the transmission for the cost plus some for the extra effort?

I'll take the transmission if you don't want to ship it

Yea I think it is to heavy and big to go ground. So definitely don't want to mess with shipping.

If the motor is still available and anybody wants to haul it to FL (long shot) I could use it for mocking something up...

Yes motor is still available. I would like to have it gone by the end of the month, but I can take it with me if we get something in stone. 

Indy is still getting the trans as of now just trying to meet up, but Gsettle is next inline!
