Making the hardware there work right is harder but in the end going faster with less says something about the hardware package. Going 6 speed because it's "cool" is not the right way.. I don't like wasting money where it wont be needed.
Totally agreed and my project is do everything myself as low cost as possible tbh but want to do it so that i'll get more than a day outa the box...lol...I see people cryo gears and all that but what's the best mods really....do you list it all on your site...lol...think not...well not to handle what your racer's puttin out anyway...

F40 Common 4cyl Gearing on 225s as the other charts.


On the Big 245s I run. Nice and tall.


with 24.5" slicks




Now compare to the std 9-3 5speed on the 225s. Just a taller 6th is all. You will have to match the tabular data rather than the charts.

Actually all the mods done to the gearboxes are in my http://trolltuner.com documents. Short of helping shift it down the strip I have told all. No cryo or magical fluids.. Just common sense, proper setup and plenty of thought. Sometimes it is not the failed part that is the problem. You have to look at the big picture sometimes.

Is this the gearbox?

Part number: 12 785 896
Usage: D223L, FM 6A301

that would be the part no in WIS, but better check the casting letters on the bell house...it should be: GM 12787 363 0822680

sorry for awakening F40 threads back from the dead but....

it seems to me the F40 has a removeable bellhousing. it would seem then, that you could change this bellhousing at say, an ecotec F40, to mate to the B2x5 engine.

further more, i found this in EPC, saying that the bellhousing is the same for all the TiD diesel engines?? Z19 being the 1.9 TiD as well as the D223L (Y22DTR in opel speak)... is that a mistake in there?
