    Sorry for the silly question but are these a direct replacement for the normal box on an L28?

    Pretty much. You have to use your original bell-housing that bolts on but you have to get the two shaft holes widened out for the bigger bearings. You need a modified gearbox mount and to shorten your drive shaft a couple of inches I think but apparently it's one of the best mods.

    My s14a 'box has however been sitting in storage as an insurance policy for the last 5 years and frankly I love my S30s original 'box - it's actually pretty nice to use! But the PO did replace the synchros, so that may help explain it.

    No worries Jason, I assumed as much :thumbs:

    As above, requires some custom work to be made to fit (Original L series bell housing modified, shortened prop shaft, custom gearbox mount etc). Gives the car a far more modern shift, particularly with a quick shifter kit fitted. Not cheap if your outsourcing all of the work and gives the car a much more modern feel. It depends on what your aiming for I guess.

    I personally love mine and think it was a great move, my car doesn't drive anything like an original one anymore though... :leaving:

    I’d prefer a rebuilt b type box, all things equal. Just the cost of doing so can add up

    Look, just admit it, your eye sight is failing you in your old age. It's looking too long at your orange beastie that's done it!

    Been after a gearbox just saw this. That driftworks gearbox would have been perfect. Price and condition was right up my street. Says he has taken deposit. Shame its might now be sold..

    Did someone buy it off here? Would really like to know if it’s still available?
