My transmission is slipping on my 92 Daytona 2.5 non-turbo. I found a used tranny from a 87 Daytona turbo. Will this tranny swap work? Anyone done this before? No guesswork please, serious answers only. Thanks

Yes but use the torque converter from your other tranny
that is bad advice. the 1987 turbo trans will not have lockup convertor while the 1992 N/A trans does have lockup. you cannot mix convetors.

to the originator... you can use the turbo trans as it is however you will not have lockup so your car will have a plug with no place to go. the only problem with doing this is you may get a diagnostic trouble code for lockup solinoid open... you will also have a slightly higher rpm at cruising speed since you don't have lockup (approximately 200 rpm difference). this also will slightly reduce your gas milage

Just find an N/A tranny, they're easier to find around here than Turbo equpiment...can't imagine it being much different elsewhere. Good thing someone caught this before you took bad advice. General rule of thumb to stay on the safe side is don't mix turbo-n/a equipment unless its something obviously the same.
