help needed - 5 spd d/r swap into a Brat
Posted 06 August 2003 - 07:30 AM
He told me some changes need to be done:
1.he told me that the 5 spd is actually shorter then the 4 spd one and so the driveshaft is either to be changed or to make the current one longer.
2.the final ratio of my brat is 3.7,some sources say the 5spd is 3.9 and some say it's 3.7, which one is the right ratio?
I know alot of you guys over the board done this swap but the problem is that I live in Israel and no one over here knows s#%t about this mods.
So any of you guys who done this please post your answers.
thank you for your time

but the more important question is HOW can I tell the ratio of the 5 spd tranny I wanna buy so I'll know if I do need to change the rear diff.

This may be what I need to do since if I want to do this conversion on my hatch, it requires a driveshaft shortening anyways.
Thanks and Kindest Regards,

Amazing as it sounds, but the 5spd dual range is shorter than the 4spd dual range.

BTW: if any one have any more tips about the swap I'll be happy to hear about it

I have rallied the heck out of mine with no problems.
Also the tranny I just happened to end up with was a 3.7 d/r.
I think it came from a loyale because it has the loyale d/r handle. I don't know for sure though. If you want some pictures of how I did it, I can do that.
Good luck man. In my opinion it is worth all the trouble, because 5th gear makes me very happy.
When my car was a 4sp it topped out at about 70 mph at about 5k revs, now it will tack out the speedo (85+ mph).

any way I'll have to go for the custom driveshaft because 4wd soobi stuff is hard to get in Israel (unlike the 2wd soobies).
I just hope it's a 3.7 because it's really hard to get rear diff's over here
