Re: hello need help again

I don't know for sure, but why do a trany swap then a motor swap? Do it all at once if you ask me.

Haha well then yeah do the swap now, I am not for sure but for all I know it should bolt right up. Do some more searching on it and maybe someone more knowledgeable will post here while you are looking lol.

Re: hello need help again

I don't see why it wouldn't bolt up, your going to have to pull the motor anyways so pull it out put it next to the tranny and try and bolt it up, if it does then put it back in and drive around if it doesn't then wait til you get your new motor.

Re: hello need help again

Yes, it will bolt up with no issues. But just so you know, there is no such thing as a b20a tranny. The transmission has it's own designation (ie..d2j3, d2j5, d2a4, etc...). The critical issue is the year of car the transmission came from. Since your car is a 91, the easiest thing would be to use a transmission from a 90 or 91 lude. If it came from an 88 or 89 you will need to modify the vss in order for the speedometer to work.

Re: hello need help again

+1 to that post! ^^^^

You might want to look around in junkyards for a tranny because it might not even be worth the trouble rebuilding a slushbox or do what I did when I turned into a hippie, start commuting by bike!
