The 6-Speed mileage thread

This thread is for people to post the amount of miles they currently have on their 03 CL-S 6-Speed. (Note: Yes, there is already an existing CL mileage thread, but this one is only about the 03 6-speeds.

I have 53,800 miles. What's yours?

The chunks in my tranny fluid told me so

Seriously, there were chunks. Its been notchy ever since I bought the car, and I got the occassional grind on the 1-2 shift. It had some shavings in it when I refilled it about 35k miles ago. Whats funny is it hasnt gotten any worse.

The motor is out for the rebuild so I thought why not kill two birds with one stone.

well it's mileage and years. 105k/7years. That's the recommendation for harsh climates. I had the money so wanted to get it out of the way. That way nothing to worry about for a long time + peace of mind. And i want to rebuild to a 3.5

92K. Tranny needs rebuild due to my son having racing aspirations. When I drop it I'll do the 105K tuneup.

Check your manual for everything, but: plugs, water pump, timing belt, crank seal, cam seal, valve adjustment, fluids, etc...

1098XX the t-belt and water pump are done, ready for another 100K or so. I'm still on the original clutch and the car has been to the drag strip several times. I honestly think I can get 175K out of this clutch, it has never slipped and still bites in strong.

Maybe a supercharger could help me wear the clutch faster.
