Re: From 4 to 5 Speed , but Which one ?

Having Been to Quaffe , They Dont do a V12 Gearbox and the 6 cll is Still being Tested , so the Choice for the V12 is
The Non Turbo Supra Box Reconditioned

The Getrac BMW Box Reconditioned

The Standard Jag Box plus Overdrive

The New Tremac ,

Unless anyone else knows of another ? ,
