i was wondering what is the difference in size and length of the typr 1 compared to the 091 trans. i'm thinking about doing the Ford 2.3, but not sure if my stock one will handle it long enough till i am able to afford a strnger trans.
i keep seeing 3,5 and 6 rib transmissions on craigslist for about $450 bucks. are these pretty well roasted or still ok to use?
or would it be better to just go to Don's Bus boxes and get a rebuilt 6-rib for $1100-core...?

The stuff on craigslist is always an unknown. Rebuilt will give you peace of mind, for not much more money.

I don't know your present/future HP numbers, but if you plan on beefing up that motor to upwards of 175HP or so, a stock (albeit freshly rebuilt) box probably isn't going to be the long-term solution you're hoping for. Super-diff, altered gear ratios, etc. are likely going to be needed, and that translates to- you guessed it- $$$$$$!!

I think Don's has a modded, fresh 091 on CL right now with NO CORE for $1,500. Might be an 002 though- I forget...

after reading some of what Scott/baja warrior has done with his set up, i'ld like to have something similar. i'ld like it to be my daily driver, but also to be very dependable, on and off road.
my transmission is my weakest link after replacing the motor. as for power, enough to get going in traffic, stay at 65 comfortably and not be scared of going off road, possibly breaking something that's going to cost 400$ + to replace...
dependability is the main focus.
if i have to wait to get this done right, i'll wait.
but decent power 80+ HP and no worries about something breaking is what i want.

The 091 6 rib is about 2 inches wider 1 inch each side then the T-1, pretty sure it also sits more to the left (I believe). Length wise, I think about the same..

Here is a 3 rib 002 and 6 rib 091, I should of put the T-1 in the pic but was just changing over when I took this one.
