This is just Silly ( let's get back on topic). On the longer tracks 5th gear can almost red line. Torque is limited
so I say 6th gear definitely count me in.
On my Elan 3rd gear with Allen's Cat program is Warp Drive. :shock:

+1 for integrating Google's driverless car technology into our cars. I just want to sit in the trunk(boot) and read a book.

Andy,
I don't see why it shouldn't - as long as the outer casing isn't too much bigger than the standard 5-speed box.

It was the standard box that we used on the original 4x4 conversion in my car (IIRC, you were looking at the same system for yours at that time), and there is plenty of room around the 'box.
Dave

Just the one now, but this one's mine! - and it will be finished eventually.....

is the original list still valid Dico ? I might add my name to it again if Monty (where is the Irish pikey anyway ?) will fit it for me for a small charge :drunk: My old 'box is getting more and more shagged out with age and I think it needs some work on it.

A couple of questions....

1) How are people finding the new box now they have it fitted ?

2) Can you still use the original gear selector cables or do you need new ones ?

1- Dico
2- Monty
3- Geoffsmith
4- esprit888 (could i get mine with overdrive on the reverse as i spend a lot of time going backwards)
5- beryl toolkey - I'll have more money to spend on my cat
6- abmunro
7- Phil (The twin driveshaft automatic with paddle shift on the steering wheel)
8- True Blue
9- Benky Boy (AkA the Doc)

Oh dear - the midday deadline has passed, and no further progress updates from Dico! :asleep:

Looks like we'll have to wait another year. Just as I was reaching for my wallet too - it would have gone great with the V6 conversion... :mrgreen:
