I suppose if you don't want to buy the gear set inclusive you will have to wait until one turns up to see how OSG did it. Am assuming from the synchro thread photo that the gears are specially machined to accept the Nissan parts.I wonder how hard it would be to make an adaptor kit for Alfa gearboxes?
My appologies in advance: but what about the German synchro rings, bearings, seals, etc that you have both used in your GB's that have been or will be built. From your comments one could conclude that those parts are verboten as well. Where do you draw the line on what parts you will / won't use.Larry, I couldn't agree more! Thanks for stating my thoughts, and probably those of others as well. Nothing wrong with a S2000 engine, or a Warner T10 transmission, or for that matter, an old 426 Chrysler Hemi. They all have their place. Just not in my Alfa.
Have you ever shifted a CR Alfa GB with lightened 9310 steel gears all running on needle bearings, with German: sliders / synchro rings / bearings and seals? It's better, much better.Both my GTA CR transmissions are lightened. One has non-moly syncros, the other moly. Slightly different ratio's. Both VERY smooth and quick. I cant imagine anything better Larry, so you know I agree!
Just my opinion.
The solution to shifting problems with transaxles has a simple solution. The problem is the movement of the front of the transaxle up and down (from acceleration) and rotationally (from engine torque).if just putting around the Alfa box feels great but when at the red line it is way harder to shift then the mazda.
Great news indeed! Thanks for the update.9-15-2015, year 4 UPDATE: The OSG gearbox is behind its second engine and it still shifts like a dream. BTW: engine #2 is a monster 2 liter and the OSG CR gearset is definitely taking a licking and it just keep right on ticking.!
Happy Motoring b
