2.2L questions

i know im gunna get flamed for this but i got it ask anyway...i have access to a FREE 89 Chrysler Lebaron. The motor is not that old. I was considering picking up this car to drop the motor into my 87 Suzuki Samurai hard top but i have no idea what kind of transmission would bolt up to this engine. i know these engines have the potential for a good amount of power (remember the application ;-) ) where would i go about finding what RWD tranny's would bolt to it and specs on those transmissions?

Re: 2.2L questions

Thats a tough one, I would try going down to a tranny shop to ask that, maybe they have a master book that shows all types of trannies and there applications and the years they were availible.
Whats up with your sig? swampers-sissies :-P

Re: 2.2L questions

You might wanna check out part interchangability with the little dodge ram 50's and some of the smaller dodge trucks/suv's.

You will probably want to get rid of the Holley 6220 carb and go for a holley 5200 off of a pinto 2.3l. The 6220 is a feedback carb and the 5200 is just a plain-vanilla carb.

For anyone who cares, the 5200 is a holley licensed copy of a weber 32/36 dfev. It costs about $120.00 for a rebuilt holley 5200, and the same weber costs $400.00.

I *believe* the 2.2 will swap with the chrysler FI 2.5. Not really sure, but I bet they used the 2.5 in the little dodge trucks and raiders when they dropped the mitsubishi 2.6, so you might be able to find a tranny/transfer for one of those.

Good luck

John

Re: 2.2L questions

I believe the 2.5 was the 4 cyl. Dodge put into early Dakotas (they didn't all come with V6's back then) . 2.2 & 2.5 are the same externaly, so the Dakota RWD/4WD trans should bolt up to your 2.2 .
