4 Banger

I found a 93 4 banger on craigslist for 800. obo. Pics are OK showing a Little surface rust and a few dents. No mileage listed says it needs a crank position sensor. Should I go for it? 5.0 conversion or a turbo? I'm not really looking but...

Re: 4 Banger

I have one of those that I daily drive that I am awaiting my 5.0 from another member so I can start making the swap.

Do you have a daily driver? If not, I say go for it. I was able to get 33 mpg out of mine driving from baton rouge to buffalo and back last year. Currently I really enjoy filling up about every other week instead of weekly with my cobra.

Also, if it is in good shape like you are saying, there is a good chance you could always flip it real quick for about 1500 or so as a project car.

Re: 4 Banger

I do have a daily driver a gas guzzling 96 Suburban lol. Winter is almost here and I like the 4X4 for the bad days but averaging about 14 mpg's gets old fast. I may try the flip in the spring but I'm sure I'll get attached and want to keep it...

Re: 4 Banger

it all depends on if the body and such is sound, its amazing how quickly costs rise if you try to do a real good ground up restoration/motor swap. If you just want a junky car to drag race then whats some rust?
