99' 76k auto, no problems yet (knock on that wood for sure with what I am doing to her!!)

Kept stock and stick, will probably last forever (or over 200k), friend had a stick 3.0 with over 200k, another friend has one with over 250k and doing great, also stick but he just slaped some 35"s on it with stock gears, so well see how long it lasts now

okay, i might get a mazda b series with the 3.0...its basically the same thing so JBA headers/k&n intake/and a ranger chip should still sync up perfect right?.....
