I've always loved V6s, from the first 2.8L Capri that I had. They are smaller and lighter than V8s and easier to work on than V8s and turbo 4s. I have one turbo 4 (Solstice) and rented the 15 turbo...

I'd vote (and hope) it's the starter, loose cables will only overheat at the point where there is poor contact.
If the solenoid overheats it usually means the starter is shorted internally.

I don't have pictures, but its very simple. I connected right to the speaker terminals. They are clearly marked + and -, so it's easy to get the polarity correct.

This a is pretty common mod-the best place to tap off from is the rear speakers as they have the best low frequency signals.

Could be the rubber sway bar bushings, tie rod end, rubber shock mounts. You can probably tell by putting it on ramps and crawling under it while you have a friend lift it up and down.

Are you trying to " match revs" as you shift? Btw, the higher th hp the bigger the jerk, it's going to take a few months of driving, then one day you won't even think about shifting.
