Car won't shift into any other gear but 4th. What could be the cause?
I own a 1988 LX with a 302 engine. It was running fine until I decided to punch it. I accelerated it and it took off. I believe I shifted inproperly. Now I can't get it to go into 1st, 2nd or 3rd. What could be wrong? Any possible solutions? IF I do have to replace the trans what would you recommend for LX with a 302 engine?

Possibly a bent shift fork or rail, I think the T5's(if that's what you have) use a single rail system. And yeah, if you plan on making more power later on, you might want to think about an upgrade now.
Who cares how much horsepower it has, all that matters is how fast it goes!
Untested 331, lots of suspension, chewing up corners.
