NICE!!!

Hey 671, just a heads up, when i get back from this deployment the fam and i are heading home to Magnolia and im planning on doing the megasquirt swap...tell yer buddy he might have a new customer!

Shoot me a pm w/ some prices...i am looking at getting the MegaSquirt installed, putting in injectors that i already have and getting the head gasket and head studs swapped out (already have those as well).

QA1's and BJ Flip up front, Drop leafs and beefed blocks out back, Celica Seats, decent sound system w/some 10's, W58 swap, 3.73 gears w/Detroit True Trac.

Cool, just contact me when you get back. So I can check when he's available when you are in town. He's working at a car fab shop again.

But, he should be able to fit you in his schedule!

Later!

Was there a year range or engine combo that these 8" rear ends were associated with?
1980's 2WD 5 lug had Beefier 8" rear ends. This could be an affordable place to start. Anything else will take more work and more $. Then if you blow the 8", you can look into going more custom.

Re: How wide is a 91 pre-taco 5lug rear end?

All the 4 banger rear ends look to be a 7.5" rear end unless you got one from one of the extended cab factory turbo trucks? I haven't seen much in the way of aftermarket support for the 8" turbo rear ends..

Not sure if this is what you ended up with? Eh?

Not only turbo models got the 8" rear. All older toys from I think the 7*-8* model toys got 8" axles. That's what we ran back in the islands for racing! You just have to look around at some junk yards.

I know a of a few places near me that have them if I wanted to do the swap. But, that's my little secret! hehehe

The 5 lug 8" rearends came in the 84+ 2wd with 4 speed trans

I picked up a truck off craigslist dirt cheap 3 years ago with that setup. Truck was used as a farm truck so it had LOW miles but was filthy

Sold the S-Runner
