So after issues with my torque converter lock up solenoid, my torque converter is now fried.

I have about 5 options in mind right now.

1. Get another tc and hope it didn't hurt the trans.

2. 5-speed swap.

3. 24v swap with 5-speed.

4. Build another 670 and try again.
or my buddies idea......
5. Convert it to rwd and drop his 426 hemi 4-speed combo in. (He has the hemi and trans and a ford 9" he will donate)

I'm in the thinking stage right now, but I don't know how much longer it'll drive like it is.

Free is always nice, and it would be wicked. lol. Plus I work in a metal/welding shop so access to steel for fabbing stuff is no problem.

Too bad the Mivec 6-speed combo wouldn't work.........

If I end up swapping everything I'll probably put the acclaim's motor in the spirit seeings I know it's solid.

As a note on how my TC ended up fried, my solenoid wasn't working right so it was locking and unlocking while driving. Now my trans fluid smells fried and it slips like crazy taking off and when it shifts into second. So I'm assuming the TC is shot unless something else fried because of it?????

can anyone tell me why the Mivec 6-speed combo wouldn't work?
Not saying that it would... just wondering the specifics to why not... also does anyone know if the awd out of an endeavor will bolt up to the Mivec and could be fit under a daytona?

it would more than likely fit. BUT, getting the Mivec 6-speed combo tuned would be a real up hill fight. you would need to have a whole car and graft in the main harness into your daytona harness and use the factory ECU. the AWD unit would be a try it and see if it would work. from my point of view a standard 3.8 using VR4 heads and a 3,5 intake and megasquirt would be the way to go. AWD the best way to go would be ether the AWD unit from a caravan or scrapping a AWD stealth or 3000gt for its unit. but no matter which way you would go your looking at a great deal of work and a lot of fab work.but it would be a very fun car that is for sure!!!!!

I know it would and it wouldn't cost much money, just fab time.

Will the mivec combo swap other then the wiring nightmare???

I have experience grafting harnesses so the mounting would really be my issue.

other members have married other wiring harnesses together in about a weekend. the trick is getting both harnesses and the matching wiring schematics so you have all the info on what goes where and start cutting and soldering!

I'll say it again... HEMI! a guy at the woodward cruise 2 years ago had a 440 6-pack in a red 86 Daytona Turbo Z, it was BAD ASS! He wanted like 12,000 for it, and it was a mean b*tch for sure.

I know but at the same time it'll kill the joy of smoking v8s with a v6 sedan. Lol.

I'm weighing everything. I found one guy with a wrecked eclipse who'll sell me the drivetrain for $1500. Same time I found a complete lebaron vert for $350. The Hemi will require a ton of fab, but is almost free.

I should note that I can only have it down for a weekend seeings it's a dd. Not sure I could pull off the Hemi in a weekend.

It would be a very far stretch from possible. And it requires a lot of hacking into an otherwise clean car. One thing that's turning me off on it.

Think I've decided on finding a 5-speed parts car and doing the swap.
