  • Hey Chris, I'm adapting a Porsche Boxster S 6 speed to an Audi ABZ 4.2 V8. They share similar bolt pattern and should not require an adapter however, the starter pocket on the trans doesn't match. Do you know of a solution?
    Hi Chris!
    I'm currently planning a GT40 build and I'm thinking of using Corvette C5 rear bearings. In some old threads I saw that you made C5 to 930 cv stub adaptors. I'm wondering if you still make these? If so, what's the price? Also a rough setimate of the shipping cost to Sweden would be higly appreciated.
    Kind regards, Fredrik Pousard, Gothenburg, Sweden
    Hi Scott,
    To be honest I'm not that familiar with those trans'--other than that they may share a similar bell bolt pattern (as the 01E)
    We have a complete kit for LS / 01E -- we use the engines flex plate and starter
    Pls E me [email protected] --I can do pics and explain better
    Cheers Chris
    Hey Chris,

    Seen a lot of your posts and want you're input. Right now I'm considering 3 transaxels for my Superlite APEX build. G96/01 inverted, G87/21, and 01E fwd. Being mated to LS1 @ 450hp. Many are telling me to choose the 96 over the 87 since I'll need to raise engine with 87. But in your experience is that necessary, or can the trans just sit lower and slightly increase shaft angle? Lately I'm leaning toward 01E since the price is right for rebuilt+LSD+wide gears= $4k. The gearing appears much better then 96/87. When considering the entire package (starter/clutch/adapter etc...What is you're recomendation of these options? Do you sell these adapter kits in US? how much?.

    Thanks for your help. oops this was intended to be pm.

    Hey Mark,
    Its a needle roller bearing of nom. 21 OD / 15 ID ~12 long and seal to suit -- should be readily available from any bearing supplier
    They are easy to get in but you may have to resort to violence to get it out.
    Had it failed ??
    Any how, if thats too hard I'll send you another
    Hi chris not sure if you got my email I bought a flywheel and pilot bearing from you back in 2007 for my g50 to SBC conversion in a T70 replica I need to replace the pilot bearing what is the pilot bearing from please and what is the best way to get the bearing out of the aluminium holder?
    Chris- could you post the following - I seem to be locked out of replys to anything on the forum - Under Aussie get together post the following:

    Whoa!!

    If this was to happen it would need to look after the rev heads and the enthusiasts.
    As I originally specked there should be track events for those that have that competitive streak and maybe tours or a rally for the enthusiasts
    This would then end up with an all in social get together.

    All this is open to suggestions and revision

    Show and shine if desired need not be open to the public and have the problem of sticky finger problem. I foresee this as a GT40 get together and does not need to become open to the public.

    Rev heads are commenting and would be accommodated but we would need to have the enthusiasts comment to see if there is an interest to make this happen and combine these events.

    If the interest is there we need then to move on a making a location and then work on a committee

    G'day Chris,

    Dalton was singing your virtues at our get-together in Canberra a couple of weeks ago.

    Do you have a website where your products are listed? Initially looking at body aligning bosses, but interested in whatever you sell.

    Hi Chris,
    Any chance that you could help me out with an adaptor plate question ?

    As outlined in my thread :
    http://www.gt40s.com/forum/gt40-tech-powertrain-transaxles/30512-detectives-needed-clutch-mystery.html
    I appear to have (or had) a problem with the g'box input shaft binding on the crank end in the spigot bearing (302 mated to a G50). It looks like the crank thrust bearing (& maybe the crank) are R/S (I have 35 thou endplay on the crank, vs the rec max of 12 thou).

    I have no idea of the supplier of the plate (it came with the part-started car when I bought it from DC&O (ex Dave Suttie car)). It is 16.45mm thick around the edges where it bolts to the block, & has a circular "dished" area where the bellhousing bolts up. This dished area is 3.85mm deep - giving a plate thickness at the bellhousing of 12.6mm.

    Does this sound right, or do we need to talk about a new plate of the correct thickness ?

    Thanks & Kind Regards,

    Hi Chris,
    Have a really great birthday, and enjoy yourself. No, not that much, just enough to revitalise for another year :)

    Cheers,

    Dalton
