View Full Version : Stock 5-speed Tranny

08-19-2002, 08:37 PM
I have a stock 5-speed tranny and stock gears in the rear.

Is there a better tranny (or 6-speed)that will bolt right up or is there a way to get this tranny to toughen up a bit? Seems I recall having heard something about a 6-speed kit or something, somewhere... Was I dreaming or sniffing to much burnt rubber or something???

If I change my rears to get the launch how easy will it be with this tranny to get a taller 5th gear put in to keep my RPM's down at Interstate speeds of 80+mph (that should be ++++++!!!!:D)???

I believe that Paul from BTM was working on a T-56 6-speed conversion, but it will be a while before it's ready I think.

There is a guy in the Ottawa area who did a conversion a few years ago, but he ended up doing a lot of custom machine work and mixing and matching of parts to accomplish the swap.
