[E-Type] 5-speed gear box

Hi there

Does anyone have any advice or experience with 5-speed
conversions. I have been told the ‘gertreg?’ is the best but I
also see T5 based ones on the market as well.

cheers

This comes up about once a month.

The Getrag will not fit a SWB car, I am told.

The T5 comes in many versions but the best is made by Paul Cangialosi of
Medatronics Corporation http://www.5speeds.com/jag.htm

They are new, have a selection of ratios and fit without any modifications.

Some of the usuals sell T5’s as well but they may be used boxes or don’t
offer a wide choice of gear ratios.

NAYYY

the only problem being I’ve just found out they’re not taking
any orders any more because oftheir back log

i want one for mine buttheir distributor in the uk is
connected to one of the scams over here and I would never use

is there anyone else or should I just stick to my 4 speed?–

Check the archives, there’s been lots of 5-speed discussion. I
believe that the relevant Getrag 'box would be from a later Jag.
My understanding is that it won’t realy work in a short wheelbase E-
type, because it’s too long. It might work in a 2+2, but would
probably need some tunnel mods, at least. The Medatronics unit is
GREAT (I have one), and worth a bit of a wait if necessary, in my
opinion.–
