Default Wanted: ZF 6 speed trans!

its a long shot but i thought id throw a post on here and see how i go.

i'm after a ZF 6 speed transmission for my BF mk2 xr8 preferably with a torque converter but not a must.
i'm not fully educated on the whole ZF process but i have been told to try find one from a similar model.
i've had alot of dishonest people so please dont bother.

feel free to send me a private message or reply here if you have one! then we can go from there.
cheers

Where are you located, whatís the failure that requires a whole replacement?

People like GT Legend can advise per VIN on the software strategy (tear tag) details if you seek a near drop-in replacement, else youíll need to transplant your mechatronics unit or have one re-flashed.

So long story short Iím in rural NSW
Itís been milkshaked for quite some time from the previous owner I bought it damaged and as far as I understand once milkshaked itís completely screwed and no guarantees it will last from a rebuild..
being rural thereís not many places close I can go to get any work done and the car itself being off the road makes this difficult.
So my reasoning for a new transmission is I could chase one up, replace and get back roadworthy!
