^^ouch, thats a little too much...
Right now, looks like I'm getting a factory refurb unit, up to 2007 specs and it's going to have stiffer springs and clutch packs. The mechanic is charging me VERY little more for the extra's, so I'm going to do it. He said he has all the parts in house, so it looks like it will be done in a day or two.
I will get an update in a couple hours. He still doesn't know exactly what malfunctioned, but he said if I have to replace it, it will be upgraded and he is putting an extended breather on it, etc. Trying to prevent it from happening again...
