Exclamation transmission

I have a 1.6L 5spd and i need a new tranny... can i buy a 1.8L or do i need to modify the bell housing? is the bell housing bolted to or part of of the tranny? is it a direct fit? what do i have to do to drop in a 1.8L 5 spd or a 6 spd?

They're all the same, different speedo gears for some years maybe. Otherwise it should be fine.

Then you need a different rearend, not a different transmission.

dude, the 5 speeds are god for 300 hp, and the 6 speeds will bolt up to yor car, and handle alittle more power. You need a different rear end ratio to solve the shitty gearing for first gear.

Then start is 2nd gear and quit your whining. We all have a short first gear. If you don't like it then get a taller rear end. Or you can spend a small fortune on the Quaife gearset.

i would start in first but i also slalom(smaller version of autocross) and the idea is to stay in one gear... first... and it would just be nice to make first gear just a little longer, the rest could stay the same

Get a taller ring and pinion. You probably have 4.30s right now, get 3.9s.

no, but i bet a SEARCH would bring up all kinds of information. Believe it or not, you're not the first to think of this.
