Classified Rules - READ BEFORE POSTING! - Updated 9/10/2019

Transactions done here are at your own risk. CEG is not responsible.

Threads that do not follow the rules will be deleted. If your thread is deleted, you may start another one as long as it meets all rules.

  1. You must be registered for 60 days to post in the classifieds.
    NOTE: The forum has been having problems allowing certain users to post once they reach 60 days. If you can't post, try clearing your cookies. If that doesn't work, PM one of the classifieds mods.
  2. Ads must include a price and location.
  3. Ads must be FS (for sale) or WTB (want to buy). No "feelers."
  4. When an item is sold, post "Sold!" in the topic. This will signal a moderator to lock the thread.
  5. You may post eBay auctions or Craigslist ads only if they are YOURS. Include the list price, location, etc. Posting just a link to the auction will be deleted.
  6. If you have multiple items for sale, please divide them up in the correct forums.
  7. If you see a problem with a post or person, notify a moderator.

Unless noted, rule violations will receive a warning the first time and an infraction subsequent times.
  1. Do not cross post your item in multiple areas. Cross posts will be deleted and the user will receive an infraction.
  2. Replies should be relevant to the item. Do not chatter.
    EXAMPLES: If I were closer, I'd buy it; GLWS; If you decide to ship it, I want it; If you decide to part it, let me know; I've seen this car in person.
    Relevant replies include questions like: Will this fit my SE?; Is that a broken tab?; How many miles?.
  3. After an agreement has been made, all shipping talk should be via PM. You may put shipping options in the original post.
  4. Do not post negative comments about an item. If somebody wants $20k from a Contour, let them try.
  5. Bumping: After two weeks (14 days), you may post "Bump" to bump your item back to the top. If you bump before the two week period, the bump will be deleted, and you will get a warning. Do it a second time, your thread will be deleted and you will get an infraction. Information updates, price changes, etc. are allowed.

  • WTB 5 Speed Manual Transmission

    Hello SVT community, I just bought my first SVT a few months ago, it is a 99 Silver with only 92K, I'm still amazed of how goes 0-80 miles in a heartbeat, but my the other hand heart broken because it is not a great commuter, I have way too many stops and gears shifting on weekdays mornings and evenings,

    I have a '98 SVT that's been sitting in my garage for about 5 years now that I want to start working on. I am in need of a manual transmission, as the housing of the one that came off the car was cracked.
    Ideally, I'd like to find one that has been rebuilt and has a limited slip diff, but at this point I'm willing to consider anything I can find. If anyone knows where I could find one, please let me know, this is the biggest obstacle right now to get the project going on. My email is

      What I recommend to just get the car up and running is to get a normal MTX at a scrapyard until you can either buy or build one in SVT spec. I'm actually thinking about trying to find another MTX myself to put in even longer gears than SVT spec so that it has a slightly higher top speed for gas mileage if I ever turbo my 97 sport. How bad is it cracked? Maybe you can find someone that will weld it?
