We have now install bigger engine in our TriStar.
But it would not be soo funny to do that with original gearbox.
Not the best qualite and not easy to change gear fast either.

But the is not many gearboxes that "fit " into an T3
Renault have one but very rare to find.
Old Porsche 915 gearboxes are there many but they are to old now.

Porsche G50 that Eric have in his TriStar is nice but little to tall.
Soo we drive to an guy we know near us that have Porsche shop
and told him what we have for planes.

Then he show us this Gearbox 96/01 from an Porsche 996 -05.
All dimentions are smaller then original and it have 6 gears and have cable linkage too the gearlevel.

Can it be better. Yes it could because this was not cheap
But itīs only money.

But now to the best. The engine we have install is from Audi 1,8 Turbo -03 And it allmost fit on the gearbox.

Only some small change have to be done.
Audi and Porsche have many parts that is same and when porsche build new engine to this 996 they built Porsche boxer to test this new engine on. And in Boxer they use gearbox from Audi soo thats why this Audi engine allmost fit on Porsche gearbox.

Half of all bolt hole was in right place.
Soo we only have to cut some aluminium peices from an Audi gearbox and cut them into the Porsche gearbox and weld it together.

Easy? Not really it tog 2day to do it.
Lot of job to fit all 5 pieces on right place.

The startengine is mouth on the gearbox on Audi and on Porsche it on the engine.
Soo we have no place to mounth the start engine.

we tok the piece from Audi gearbox and weld it into the Porsche gearbox to soo now we have an start engine to.

Here is some pictures that show how we did.
Best regards Patrik and Erhard

We did the install in an old singelcab first to test out everything.

This is the Porsche gearbox.

I've been following your build thread on VWVortex. You've done a really nice job with the whole truck restoration, but I'm most impressed with the way you interfaced the VW inline 4 with the Porsche 996 transmission. It's amazing how similar the bellhousing pattern is. I also like the stock looking gear lever that is actually shifting a cable linkage.

How is the ground clearance below your rear engine crossmember?

Keep up the good work!

David

Hi David!

Thanks.

This was something we notice first when we had all parts an could see how similar they were.
It was "only" some mount hole that was missing.
Soo it easy to see how close Porsche, Audi VW work.

One of our goals is that everything shall look original out.
That why we keep the original gearlevel.

Wait when you see pictures on the big 3" exhaust it really look like an original muffler to T3 but little bigger.
I have not take pictures on it yet.
But i shall do that.

The ground clearance is bigger now then with the original engine.
