Default Gearbox problems

Mechanic has finally got the gearbox out and says the box needs to be stripped and may start to cost to much and I may need to get a second hand one from the wreckers. Would it easier to maybe go a STI 6 speed.
Any suggestions would helpful.
Cheers.

I have a Spec C DCCD 6 speed for $3.5 K...it is in excellent cond....you can use your 5 speed clutch and starter motor. You will need rear (3.9) diff and probably tail shaft + shifter and you could buy an aftermarket controller to operate the DCCD.

Cheers Steve I'll see if my box can be fixed first I'll have to take it to mick at Japline to have look and then I'll make a decision then I'm just getting some ideas in case it's knackered.but I've seen yours for sale really would like to have
But it depends on what the boss says.

Has anyone looked at this yet? At that price I'm somewhat interested, but being interstate and not viewing it myself or coming from a reputable seller, I'm a bit cautious.
