Another problem is shifter placement. If you have long legs, it gets hard to reach third gear without leaning forward.
T5 trans is junk in stock form.
Heater cores are weak.
Stock handling sucks.
Its hard to find one without rust these days.
Torque boxes are tack welded in place and rip easily.
***Ponyboy302, the torque boxes are the mounting " brackets" on the body for attaching the rear control arms. 2 uppers and 2 lowers.***
The biggest problem around here is THEFT! Once you make it fast and people see it, it becomes a target. Several of my friends have had theirs stolen.
Fortunately, most of the problems are cheap and easy to improve.
