don't try this at home??
Well, in my lust to find a way to make my new
86 4kcsq go faster I finally took some net-advice
and phoned Ned R. @ Intended Acceleration.
Very nice fellow and quite helpful. Bottom line
Without a turbo I'm stuck. I can get 190hp and
great top end using the stock motor but I'll give up
torque (not me brother, never!!). Torque is good -
torque is your pal...
Ned said the only way out of it is to swap the
4k's engine out for a 5kt engine and start from
there. If I start with the 5kt motor I can go
much faster (read - much more torque).
Ok. I can deal with that. I'll just have
to save a little longer thats all.
Obvious question is: hey bozo, buy the 5tq to start
with! Sorry, I don't like them as well as the 4ks.
I have a real thing for boxy cars (other car is 86 gli).
I love the lines on the old 4ks.
So, with that said, and to chew up a little more
bandwidth on the net; has anyone done a 5t motor
into a 4k swap?
Oh, btw, am I nuts to consider this??
