Re: 4kTQ conversion questions - part II
In a message dated 11/7/99 5:17:35 PM Central Standard Time,
the turbo swap into a 4KQ if you know where to look.
I went "donor" hunting this past weekend and found an 86 5KTQ for sale -
130k on the clock. The
car started right up (the motor was cold, I checked first ;) and no smoke
was observed, idled
normally etc. Only the typical lifter and #@%^*! warbling water pump noises
heard. This car is
loaded with a 5spd, leather, ABS.. Drove fine, although I think it needs a
tuneup (kinda doggy
down low). Boost read 1.3 bar, both diffs locked right up, and all the
electric goodies worked
too. After a good hard run I shut the car off and behold, the after run
coolant pump and rad fan
worked! Restarted hot just fine. All for $1800. I made an offer, just
waiting to hear back....
My additional questions...
You are going to tear apart a fine running expample of a 5000qt?? Find a
wrecked one and take the additional 900 bucks you saved and buy some decent
