Opinions Needed. PLEASE.

So I bought myself a beater 4th Gen. Engine crapped out on me. I found a 5th gen with a blown tranny. With a rebuilt H22a4 with only 46,000 on it.

Im currently thinking about swapping the trans into the 5th gen and getting a Engine/Tranny for the 4th gen. And make the 4th my project car and the 5th my daily.

The 5th is $1500 with a blown tranny. Would this be worth it in your opinions? Or should I just simply worry about getting the 4th Gen running??

Re: Opinions Needed. PLEASE.

What shape is the body on the 5th gen? Id be tempted to do the swap so u got a dd and build the 4g like you said. Or the other way around. All depends what you want. Try to talk him down to a grand since you gotta do a swap.

Re: Opinions Needed. PLEASE.

yeah you should talk him down cause you could do some nice stuff there. I think you should build the 5th gen and use the 4th gen as your DD but thats just my opinion cause i don't think the 4th gen is as good looking.

talk him down?????? if the body is in half way decent condition $1500 is a steal, even if it didn't have a motor and trans at all.


OP: buy the 5th gen and throw your trans in it.

Re: Opinions Needed. PLEASE.

The 5th gen is in near immaculate condition. No rust that I saw a little faded paint.
My 4th Gen paint is .... well. Clear coat peeling just about everywhere. Front bumper held on by zip ties (previous owner)

I was leaning towards swapping the tranny over to the 5th gen and using it as a DD. But with this crappy weather we're having... and no garage to work in.
