Really interesting stuff in another corner of the internet that may or may not have been pointed to in this thread. Gotta give props to those involved with that project.

So, I wonder how much it would cost to nurse a well-worn Getrag M-DCT back to stock condition? I guess I should read up on all the info and see if that particular point was covererd at all.

In that case 6MT should be way cheaper to fix, right?

(please don't start about 6MT vs DCT here again, just curious about repair price for 6MT and DCT)
Thank you for reminding every body not to make this a 6MT Vs DCT thread, there is a ton of them already, plus we all know DCT is better

I love this thread, I think you guys just saved me $3000, going to stick with 6MT and save 50 lbs as well (+/-).

Funny, I remember reading a while back that the 6MT's had no parts available and could only be replaced, not rebuilt... so give it time and there will likely be parts for DCT once they've been in service long enough to justify a parts market.
Still, I decided to go 6MT partly for reliability and partly just because I think there may not be a choice in the next generation.
