Re: 89' 4cyl tranny

No brainer swap. BUT
The late tranny has an even higher first than the 85.5-86 SVOs. If you have
an early one, then they're about the same.  For a lower first and closer
spreads between gears, get a 5.0 tranny and have the input shaft ground
down to fit in the 2.3s pilot bearing

I've done this and I like it.  AND I can now run 4.11s in the rear :)

a lower (numerical) first gear.
