  1. Hi, has anyone done their own or know where I can buy bits or a kit from ?
    Any info or photos appreciated .
  2. I,ll be watching this as well I guess you want to put a t25 gearbox in a bay
  3. I was wondering if the whole t25 gear stick,linkages, etc
    could be put into a bay..
  4. i had a friend who put one in a split ,he got rid of the rear axle and put the springs and arms off a t25...

    If your thinking of this maybe worth considering putting in the hydro clutch in as well ,far more reliable...:thumbsup:

    if you look at normal car gearbox set ups ,they are just a series of bars and cups...
  5. Cableshift in the US sell a cable shift conversion but its $649.:eek:

    I've seen a couple converted using vauxhall corsa gearbox linkage parts and porsche boxster cables but can't find the piccies now.
    lost-en-france and Dicky like this.
  6. T25 6 rib boxes are cheap by comparison so it might be cost effective... 5 speed box? (if theres any point)
  7. 5 speed T25 box has the same top gear ratio as the 4 speed so you don't gain anything really. The 5 speed is a bit more fragile as the 5th gear was an afterthought.
    I'm still looking for a replacement 5 speed box for my T25 and thought about going 4 speed instead as they are easier to find.
  8. Thanks guys, I have found a couple of companies who do the linkage set up for @ £400.00.
    But may try my own set up first.
  9. What companies? A cable setup may be the ideal way out of it for me
  10. not been funny , but the gearstick is'nt long enough...
  11. They were built to go in sandrails.

  13. Something like this?

  14. I'm sure I could come up with something neater than that. That looks like the terminator trying to pull you through the floor.

  17. It looks like the 918 series on their site. Excellent info though
  18. Hi, brought a Dk code 6 rib T25 box (75k) for £150.00 nose change so i should be able to convert it or use some of the cable change bits i brought off a guy on VWKD.
    still unsure which way to go but nice to have a choice !
  19. Hi, weather and family have delayed any progress, still not decided what to do yet !
    hope to be back on the bay soon.
