So, I am waiting on some different cams and lifters for my 3.45 litre 24 valve 6-speed conversion, but during what little bit I drove the car around, the 6-speed 156 gearbox-conversion appears to be a great success!

All 7 gears engaged properly, the shifter position is excellent and the cable action of the 156 gearbox is flawless! Keep in mind that my car was even an automatic that I first had to convert over to manual, in addition to the engine-swap and then in addition to the 6-speed conversion, so mine is still a work in progress!

I am very confident though that this is a very viable upgrade for a tired 5-speed or a lack-luster automatic 164! The gearbox does not install itself and it does require one custom (but simple) bracket between the rear of the new (shorter) 6-speed tranny and the 164 sub-frame. Other than this, it all goes right in - bolts right up to the 12 valve or to a 24 valve block!

It also uses a stock 164 clutch.

Any way, I am in a situation where some ****head ordered 3 gearboxes from me and has failed to perform! And so, I have 3 of these beauties for sale - complete with shift-linkages, shifters etc. There are some good details about my project here: http://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/164-168-1991-1995/30011-6-speed-3-45-litre-164-ls-conversion-anybody.html

I have one of the 3.5:1 long-ratio 6-speeds from the slant-nose European GTV/Spider cars, one more 3.7:1 ratio 6-speed from a GTA (just like mine) and then one 3.9:1 ratio 6-speed from the V6 156... All three are VERY low miles (all below 50K miles) and one is even only at 15K miles! All have been inspected and are ready to go.

Shipping to the US will be shared between the 3 boxes. Please contact me off-forum via [email protected] or buzz me at 425.941.4747 and we can get a deal done! Now would be the time to take advantage of a really tough situation!

So I have verbal commitments on two of the three gearboxes!

Looks like the 3.7:1 GTA box is still available! Feel free to ask though, as I have not yet received any deposits and may end up needing backup offers - who knows!?

I can alsways hunt and get more if need be, so NOBODY will be left out!
