Re: 2.6 trans to 2.5
Conquests came with an auto also, but its unique, wont mate to a 2.2/2.5 only 4G63/G54b.
The 2.6l was used by chrysler at some point but only longitudinally, also in the mighty max.
The 54b is a monster with the right head and fuel injection; largest production 4-cyl, forged and nitrided crank, piston oil squirters, etc. Even the hemi chamber isn't a bad idea necessarily for a turbo application but that 8-valve head, masochistic intake, and 1-2 injector set-up ruined it.
Either build a 54b with the bette rhead and mult-port efi, or build a G63, they can be stroked to 2.5l I think.
Can anyone say Cosworth Conquest....
