The internals are all the same

The only difference is the case

saab4life93t to bring back an old thread... im redoing my viggen's trans right now and I have already bought a quaife lsd just looking for a low mileage box to swap into the viggen case. Has anyone used a fm55 gears from a 9-5 to put into a viggen. Im pretty sure the final drive is the same. Just hoping to hear someone has gone this route because Im about to pick up a 9-5 trans with low mileage to put into my vig case with the lsd...

GenuineSaab Only the Cobalt SS with the G85 package has the Quaife. Normally these are identified by the recaros.

b dash rian oops, yeah, thats what i meant, the cobalt SS has the LSD

I think there is no LSD, only the Cobalt especially equipped have it.

I did this a few months back but opted for a brand new trans in a box. The new transmissions have all the latest upgrades (crush sleeve you have to replace anyways when installing the Quaife). Local dealer gave me a huge deal on the trans and used ones were not available at the time. So far I'm loving it and it seems to be holding up really well....just changed the oil and no metal bits to speak of!

Quaife is really worth the money and effort IMO.

if (when) i'm in the market for a new tranny, i'll be looking into this option. I wonder how feasible it actually is?

Yanos Same thing occurred to me this last week. Now in the dilemma of what to do... Just finished a head gasket, now this.

Good luck with the swap.
dammit..... thought I could still get it back.....

not sure I want to go throught the expense of a LSD..... been debating on selling the car but I think I will keep it. Trying to get ideas.... still waiting on a reply from goldwing.....

reverse issues seems to be kinda common with these cars

NahumCC Sounds like whatever happened inside of your transmission was the same failure that mine has had. Trans swap is happening on my end shortly before I leave for OCS.



10 days and counting. Wow.

gm Hmmm.... so I should snag a trans from Goldwing, lsd from genuine & swap the diff & bearing cover from my viggen trans & I will be good to go?

I just shot goldwing a email, waiting on a price

Yep this is the cheap way to go. As long as you are changing the diff (And the bearing cover) you can make it a "Vig". Also the used 185/205hp trans had possibly an easier life at a given mileage.
