I was wondering if it's possible to put a 6speed trans from a mkIV in a mkII to gain better highway economy. Will it fit? Are the ratios different enough to wrrant such a swap? Where can I get a trans?
very true on all accounts....guy who knows trannies!Norbie said:You will not get better highway economy with a Getrag V161 6-speed; only 6th gear is overdriven, and the ratio is not much different to 5th gear on a W58.
V161's don't have separate bellhousings like W58's, so adapting one to an M series engine (or anything apart from a JZ engine) would be very difficult and costly.
