All -

As many of you have just rec'd...i too got my new issue of Turbo mag today and what do I read in their "Project Scerious"?

They had a TT 6spd with a messed up 3rd gear syncho - they send it to The Race Shop in Torrance, CA (310-398-1068) to be rebuilt.

Most surprising is they stated components from the new BMW 6spd tranny are a direct replacement for the 6spd Getrag Tranny. Any additional info or thoughts on this?

So BMW uses Getrag as a tranny supplier?
Ja!

Getrag Trannies

I think Getrag and BMW have a long history of colloboration. Getrag and BMW worked together to deveop the SMG and Getrag trannies are used in M cars and the Z8.

Here's a pic of a Getrag 5 speed being hoisted into a BMW

It is very much a possibility. I was at the Porsche/BMW dealer today and one of my friends is a Porche mechanic there and he said the newer twin turbo Porches also have a 6 speed Getrag tranny from the factory.

I thought Porsche uses its own G50 tranny for the 911 cars.

If im wrong then sorry

Why bother when Curt at Elmhurst can get you the proper parts? I ordered my synchros, hub and 2nd gear from him.

Umm NO. The C5 has a POS Tremec gearbox, not the wonderful Getrag box.

Right on...a friend of mine in NJ - must be on his 3rd 6spd tranny - granted he runs 10.80s - but still....

The one he showed me yesterday had Getrag stamped right on the tranny. Also, the G50 is a Getrag tranny. :)
