P.S. Any Canadians on this forum? Can somebody please tell me why the hell evreytime I see a car with Canadian plates (usually Ontario and Quebec) here in NY they are driving so damn fast? Like at least 95 -110?
Do they think they are immune from US laws, or is it the Kilometers per hour/Miles per hour difference that has them confused?

I wish there was still no limit, that would be a good enough reason to move there!
Funny thing is since they got federal funding to implement speed limits and enforce it, the amount of fatal accidents went up 111%
just droppin' some random internet links on yo' ass for da '04.

I don'y know if the Viggen was different inside or just a bit tougher. My mate had a 200 BHP Irmscher kitted V6 Vectra (no turbo) and we put some serious power down and that box took it all.

Box of 6 cogs
The guts are a standard GM set from the F25 transmission that was used in the Vauxhall Vectra.

Nick, is the Quaife 6-spped kit dog or synchro engagement? I've seen their 6-speed kits for other makes and I think they were all dog.
Like everyone else has said, I don't see the need with a wide power band. But if you had some absurdly modified car and you were making all your power in a little narrow range, I could see the need. . .

|ERP||With my rev limit raised to 7000, 5th gear will go up to 185 mph. That's calculated of course, with my horsepower I could only make it to 165 or so. I see no need for 6 gears, but it would be nice if 1st and 2nd were a bit longer.|

|WS||i thought montana used to have no speed limit.......and now they only have speed limits in the daytime..... , its very wierd that u probably have the most powerful car on here and live in the loosest area for law enforcement and you havent used all of 5th i have gotten up to 135....im not trying to kill myself or lose my license for a few years . i might have gone faster but i tend not to look down when im doing it|

|!n/a_saab||yeah i would only want a 6 speed if i was making near 450 horsepower...like nick said, its tough to use all of your 5th gear!|
|05-18-2004 03:56 PM|
|GenuineSaab||There is a Quaife 6-speed kit for select saab 900ng/9-3 gearboxes. I do agree that with such a broad powerband there is really no need. I have not used all of my 5th gear in the viggen... Yes I have tried...|
|05-16-2004 10:36 AM|
|WS||why do u want a six speed......its not like you want a lower first gear than you already have, or 2nd for that matter. i think the gearing is pretty good. It would be way too expensive but i think that someone like nordic or hirsch has one....probably like 6 grand......if u think thats worth it your crazy|

Just all this trannnnyy shit has got me thinking of how much i wish i had a 6 speed....
is it possible and how much would it cost?
