It has about 135k on the body. The engine has around 30k (supposedly). With the way the gear shift feels (like a floppy sausage) my guess is that the trans is original to the car. Is there any reason why it would be limited to just 1st gear?

Hands down the best mod I did to the car was having an NB Miata gear set put into the S5 N/A case. It made the car so much more fun to drive.
Thanks man I'm really excited about it. Im ready to kind of run it hard but i want to get the coolant flushed first and maybe have the trans fluid done too. Why the miata gears though? The gearing in this car is already shorter compared to the other models.
