i found an 88 dodge turbo caravan that i was thinking about converting from an automatic to a 5spd. I know my way around 2.2's and 2.5 in omni's and daytonas, but i've never messed with mini's, so i figured you guys would know...

- if i wanted to swap a 5 speed into the caravan, which trans would i need to use?
-what needs to be modified for this to work?
-is it a royal pain in the ass to do?
-is there any step by step or tech threads of a swap that i could reference?

thanks guys!
-Chris

Go for a tranny with the lowest gearing you can. I have a 3.77 A523 in my minivan and I wish I could get something like a 3.90. I also mounted the shifter on a pedistol for better driving. That does require the cables to run a different route through the floor though.
