Re: 88 Daytona RWD conversion

Not to side track, But a B16 into a Geo Metro is completely doable.

Re: 88 Daytona RWD conversion

I like Exline's kit. I'll be doing that to my 85 in a few years... After I get tired of the 2.5 turbo that I'm building to drop in it now.

Yes, Exlines kit is a direct fit bolt in replacement. There are some things that are welded in- frame extensions, etc., but the factory suspension is used (slick how he does it...). The only cutting would be for the trans tunnel, and it's only from the firewall to just behind the shifter. He can supply directions for installing and a list of parts needed for the whole thing. I have his website if you need it. Send me a pm. I also have pictures of his car while he was doing the conversion.

Exline also cuts out the rear floorpan behind the rear seat(cargo area) and relocates it 3"s higher to make room for the rear end(e/b body 8 3/4), suspension travel, 70's challenger gas tank....
It is slick some of the things he's done using some of thte stock parts, but its FAR from bolt in.

Re: 88 Daytona RWD conversion

I know this post is old, but I'll be buying exline's kit in a year or so and starting on my own RWD Daytoina/Laser.

Parts are around $1200-$1300. For him to install, price varies on the car, and how much you want him to do.

He'll use an 8 3/4 Chrysler rear-end and a steering column from a Dakota unless you ask for otherwise. I've been e-mailing back and forth getting details and advice as I build up some funds.
