With a Z-motors trans a bellhousing swap will be needed.
A Z or ZX car with the L6 motor's transmission will bolt to your existing L. Some mods may be needed.
I say pass the L20B and man up.
Get after that KA. (One of the reasons why I told you to buy a Hardbody. *hint, hint*)
i really considered the ka but with my experience, I won't know enough to do it alone and i don't have the confidence to complete it.
I know it sounds dumb but if im confident, i'm sure even if i get stuck, i'll keep motive to push through.
yes, the ka is a better swap since it is fuel injected and powerful. but what i can do without having my daily sit for too long is the l20b. with my experience, the ka could take months like i've heard/seen or just a couple weekends.
the l20 on the other hand should but just one weekend hopefully.
i was also thinking of saving up 3 grand and paying some one to do the swap but then i think it takes away all the pride i have in the car doing things myself.
no matter what, in the future, I will do my own ka swap successfully. I think when i get another daily, it'll happen but that's in years.
thanks. i'll have to look for a 5 spd from an l6 motor.
also, i have a random oil leak that I'll look into this weekend.
I also have my carbs going off sync again but it'll be fixed in a few tomorrow with my unisync and all.
i put 20 straight oil as well in my car.
afterwards, i realized that's too thick?
live and learn.
