Sad day for my lude

So the transmission on my 98 base is about to go (yes its auto). With all of the suspension issues I will probably end up parting it out. I have a JDM H22 swapped into it right now, I was hoping to get an idea of what it is worth and what you think i could get out of the car.

Re: Sad day for my lude

The 5-speed swap will be the best investment you'll ever make into that car. And hell suspension work ain't that bad don't give up so quickly man. When i got my lude its suspension was shot tranny went out needed a new cat, paint job etc. The list goes on and on. Now its practically a brand new Lude I got it all done for some real good prices as well. You just gotta shop around and make contacts. Eventually you'll find a great deal.

^Lol! I don't think he would like riding a motorcycle with a long commute, he would be sweaty and smell like outside.
5spd swap is pretty straight forward our cars came universal for auto's and manuals so there not cutting or any modding required it all bolts up. Finding the parts is going to be the hardest of it all. For a good swap expect to pay around 500-1k not including if you get a shop to do it.

Re: Sad day for my lude

Don't give up on your lude man. 5 speed swap and your good. Any other car you get will need work as well. Think of it as investment , especially if you dropped an h22 in it.

Re: Sad day for my lude

Manual swap. . . if you don't want to part with the car, you don't have to! And it might be hard to sell if the auto trans problems are very prevalent. . . which it seems like they are, since you know it is on its last legs.

Re: Sad day for my lude

Yeah, I will probably end up doing the swap having thought on it for a day or two. Does anyone know of any good shops in los angeles to do a 5 spd swap, because i do not have the space tools or knowledge to do it myself.
