Might be dumping the vert soon

We went out today and took a look at this 1991 4cyl 5spd. It appears that we are going to be trading my vert or selling my vert to get it.

Re: Might be dumping the vert soon

Correct, it is indeed an auto. The one we looked at has a straighter body and a cleaner interior.

We are pretty sure we are going to be getting it. Just want to see if he'll trade for my car or if we have to sell it first.

Re: Might be dumping the vert soon

No we are getting it because we are doing the 5.0 swap and I wanted a 5spd 5.0 and this is a 5spd 4cyl.

The tranny in the 4 cylinder has a steeper first gear iirc. It actually eliminates the need for a rear gear change

Re: Might be dumping the vert soon

So the 4cyl 5spd works with a 5.0. I thought you had to change something in it for it to work

Re: Might be dumping the vert soon

I have the 4cyl trans in my Vert. With 3.73's I can't launch in 1st gear when I go to the track. It's like ****ing granny low.

Well you don't want to put a 400 hp motor in front of it but a stock 5.0 it can handle. And you can leave the 2.73 rear gear in because it will still launch well,and get pretty good mileage

Lol I think we'll just switch it to a v8 t5. We are slightly building the motor.

Re: Might be dumping the vert soon

If I don't trade mine for a Ranger, those are my plans, but honestly, a V8 T5 isn't much stronger.

Re: Might be dumping the vert soon

I'm thinking about it. I've always wanted a Ranger, and now going into the summer, the Vert is "worth more" than a truck. People are idiots around here and don't think ahead like I do. It will have to be 4x4 though.
Just a thought right now, still not sure. Kindof an internal debate.

Re: Might be dumping the vert soon

Yeah I was considering getting a ranger at one point as well. But only to do the 302 swap on it.

Make sure you get a v8 t5 instead of leaving the 4 cyl t5 bolted to the 5.0, if you don't...you might be sitting on the side of the road one day
