So for some back story, I am planing on taking my '84 and putting it on '88 suspension front and rear, then later down the line, swap out the duke for the LNF version of the Ecotec, and tune to put out ~310 +/- 10 hp.
I got the car for free, so unless I can find an '88 for under $500 (does not need to run. parts car for suspension) I am just going to get what I need from junk yards.

Ok so the real question. When I am done I am going to have a Duke mated to the "sport" version of the 4 speed. The one with the 4.10 final drive. Is there much value in that trans?

I ask because I am tossing the idea around with a friend of mine to take the '84 front and rear cradle, a pile of tube steel, and a summer, and make up a frame to mount them to. basically a big gokart/buggy kind of thing. It is still an idea right now.

I was thinking that the more agressive gearing would be good for a project like this, but before I go and really abuse it, I was wondering if there is much demand for it out there in the Fiero community.

Thanks!

92% of the manual transmissions sold that year were the 4.10. 8% were the MY8....3.32 so the short answer is 'no'.

lol ok so they are not rare by any means. That being said, more just out of curiosity at this point, how much do they normally go for?

You can probably find one in the Mall, but I have seen well-worn ones offered for $100 (plus shipping).

/\ I agree. I had one and couldn't get rid of it. Not much value in these transmissions. The gearing is undesirable for higher hwy speeds. In my 84 coupe if I was doing 65 she would be screaming at 3,000 rpms.

Alright, well thanks guys!

I figured if it was an easy sell I could at least turn a paper-weight into come cash to help fund my swap. But for $100ish, I am most likely just going to end up keeping it with the engine so i have a full drive train with a turn key engine later down the road.
