Hey UCF and all. I have a reliable source for info on the V6 ,manual situation. I've been told that there were three problems associated with this drivetrain combo - trans, clutch, and driveshaft. Second gear synchros had to fixed, clutch and pressure plate had to be upgraded, and the driveshaft was changed. All issues have been resolved and new parts are now in the pipeline. Production will begin in mid May. Glad they're taking the time to do it right ! I can wait a little longer, no problem.
