Honda 3.5 with a 091 trans?


Recommended Posts

Here's a picture of our 2 seat car that currently has a 2000cc VW engine and a 091 stock trans. Eventually we want to put an A-arm front end on it, build up the trans, and get a Honda 3.5 engine. I'm looking for some advice, can the 091 Trans hold up under the power and torque of the Honda 3.5?

Thanks

With the car being that small i bet you would be fine. Ross tried killing his trans because it was in need of a rebuilt and was a 091 behind a turbo honda.. he ended up cookin the turbo and motor before the trans lol

OK, well we have decided to have Don (dons bus box) build the trans to the max and go for a Honda 3.5. The engine, wiring harness and ECU acquisition have been put in capable hands, so I can focus on the fabrication work and gathering the rest of the parts to complete the job. We are planning to start the up-grade in February and are currently doing our research on cooling systems.

Wish us luck....... :rolleyes:

Today I made some progress on the engine up-grade for my buggy. I picked this engine up in Phoenix, it's from a 2003 Honda Odyssey with 60,000 miles on it. I was able to get the engine as shown with a power steering pump and an alternator for $900.00. The engine weighs in at 380lbs with the pallet.

I have a Rancho-built 091 in my 4-seater with a Shortstar... two seasons no tranny problems. I don't drive it hard but I definitely dune it.

BTW... reverse on an 091/V6 combo is for looks only. :P

Thanks for that good advice! :duniemonkie:

What are you doing with the wiring and ecu, are you sending it out or doing it yourself?

I got a break from the F100 project, so I have been working on the buggy. First thing I did was purchase 60 feet of 1.5" Chrome moly tubing. I decided to re-work the entire rear end of the buggy instead of trying to make the existing work. Then I got the clutch kit, a KEP 228mm (9 inch) 6-pad disc with "stage 3" pressure plate, KEP adapter plate and 091 trans from Don's Bus Box, the Sand Pro Max. Kraut_n_Rice set me up with the wiring harness and ECU. Because of the new location of the trans/drive flanges in relation to the rear hubs, the axles were sent to Kartek to be shortened 3/8".
