    My momma once told me

    "If you don't have anything relevant to say, SHUT THE FUCK UP"

    I think it applies here :hs:

    Is it unreliable by design, or by user error?

    Aside from the tranny, do you like it? Is it a stock SR20 or modded?

    Any dyno numbers or anything?

    I need to find a local guy with a TII and a local guy with a SR20 and compare, I really can't decide.

    No smog, daily driver in nice weather, but I own a rental car company, so transportation isn't really an issue.

    Transmission problems are sucky.

    Stater is just regular shit, it happens to every car.

    Same with alternator

    Boost leak - Incorrect install

    Exhaust leaks - same

    Oil leaks - Same, replace the gaskets while you have it out.

    I understand your frustration, but it's not really SR20 specific IMO.
