SF Bay area recommendations for gearbox replacement


Gold Level Sponsor
Hello - I'm considering installation of a 5-speed gearbox in my M1 Tiger. Can anyone recommend a quality shop in the San Jose/Bay area?

Thank you

Maybe you should check the prices. Last I heard it was about 6 or 7000 just for the parts. Not including possible 5 to, 6 bolt changes, R and R everything and IDK if custom drive shaft was included.

Thank you, gentlemen
A less costly option is to re-gear 4th and the rear end ring& pinion! makes 4th an OD and the car is so light with torque & HP it should be fine!!!

If no one here knows who does that conversion, try there CAT forum
