Re: 5 speed V8 conversion
Not gonna happen. Amongst the miscelanous stuff like
interior pieces, bell housing's, radiator....
The floor pan is different from the automatic.
The Auto and the 5 speed are practically 2 different
cars both mechanicaly and performance wise.
Yes. the V8 auto is slow off the line unless you power brake it,
but at big cash for a tranny I ain't gonna do it :-)
The 5 speed on the other hand is pretty quick. I think somewhere
around 7 seconds or so 0-60 versus I think a lumbering 9 for the
auto. I might even suffice to say it will give a stock tq a run
for it's money. 20 valve excluded off course:-)
89 100 Wagon (ailing at the moment :-(
90 V8 zipping right along :-)
