We make a wide array of adapters to mate popular and some not so popular engines to most popular transaxles. For customers buying complete car kits, if we don't already have an adapter, you can send an engine and transaxle to us and we can probably mate them together. Engineering hours to measure, design and test, as news write for us as cutting hours on the CNC machining centers will be billed at prevailing rates.
Call us to discuss custom options. Again, this option is only for customers buying a new car kit at the time the custom adapter is requested. The following livestock record keeping template some of the adapters we currently make.
Some are popular and are stocked, while others will need to be machined on an as-ordered basis. Oerlikon Grazaino supplies transaxles to Audi and Lamborghini and other supercar manufacturers. They are 6-speed units, with high-end parts. These are new, and are suitable for many mid-engined cars, including all of the Superlite cars that require transaxles, especially the SL-C and GT-R.
As the preferred transaxle for the SL-C and GT-R, these are fully supported by the factory with specific instructions in the Build Manual, and also with a Transaxle Completion Kit which includes everything needed to make these transaxles work in the SL-C and GT-R, including a a custom flywheel, new clutch, ring gear, alignment dowels, starter, and all hardware needed to install the transaxle to the car equipped with an LS engine.
Ricardo provided the transaxle for the Ford GT cars. They are extremely robust, and routinely power HP cars. They also very expensive, hard to find, and the clutch and starter are costly as well, but they are bulletproof.
Occasionally found new as NOS, but generally only as a used transaxle now. We have adapter plates that adapt the Ricardo to the following engines:. These are popular choices because they are light, relatively inexpensive to acquire, and, compared to some of the later choices, relatively compact. We have adapter plates that adapt the G50 to the following engines:.
The G96 range of Porsche transaxles was an evolution of the venerable G50 series, with improved synchros, and other technology.
These are available as reman units from Porsche and other sources, enabling a car to have a new or near-new transaxle for relatively little money. Of course, we have adapter plates that adapt the G96 series of transaxles to the following engines:.Due to shipper and supplier delays, your order may take longer to arrive.

Want to pair a four-wheel drive tranny with your existing small block Ford?By campermanJune 11, Every few months on here I see the same threads about how increasingly expensive and unobtainium 5 speeds are. In the process of doing this I have come to learn all of the technical hurdles in mating the RX8 gearbox to the BMW M20 engine, of which there are many, none of which are insurmountable.
There is little fundamental difference between an M20 and an M10 as far as the clutch and transmission setup is concerned. In my spare time I have also made a trial M10 to RX8 6 speed adaptor plate and have access to the facility of getting a CAD drawing made to replicate it. What is so great about this transmission? The key aspect when it comes transmission swaps is the gear ratios. Everyone says that a 5 speed transforms the car, albeit in different ways depending which one you choose.
Well this 6 speed is double the transformation, I can attest to that. However as I have said, there is not a great deal of difference between mating it to the M20 which I have done without issue. I am at the point now where to progress this it would involve me spending chunks of my own cash to get it drawn up, and test adaptor plates laser cut etc. Im just a private individual, so Im reluctant to do this if there is no appetite for this set up.
After all, I will get no benefit out of this because I already have one in my car! So I guess Im trying to gauge what the interest would be in these and whether I should pursue it or drop it. Maybe there is someone out there willing to aid start up costs for one of the first plates… Ideally it would be great if I could get a plate to someone who is able to dive straight into installing the transmission and report back on things like the tunnel fitment etc and that, yes, it does fundamentally work, even though I know it will You can see the tunnel shape is still pretty much normal.
Love where your head is at. Seems very doable and likely fit the needs of more than one 02 owner. The downsides are not small, but also not a big deal for those not interested in "can convert back to OE as needed". Outlet from the trans to the driveshaft?Why make this conversion? Withstanding up to Nm and with a fairly low second hand price, this BMW gearbox is both incredibly strong and cheap : it is one of the most affordable and reliable upgrades for highly tuned cars used in competitions.
This kit can also be used when converting an automatic transmission to manual on a Supra or Chaser, OEM Toyota gearboxes like Getrag 6 speed or R becoming rarer and more expensive. The adaption plate included in this kit is designed and made in Europe, CNC'd from aviation quality forged aluminium.
Widely used in motorsports for several years, it offers both stiffness and perfect alignment between the engine and the transmission. The adaption plate comes with all necessary parts for installation bolts, accessoriesand we also offer different optional clutches for a bolt-on installation, depending on your requirements. Designed for daily driving and occasional track days, this multipurpose single-disc clutch offers great value for money, all while ensuring a long product life.
The corresponding flywheel, which is necessary for installation, is made from high quality lightweight forged aluminium. Recommended both for daily use and on the track, this twin-disc clutch combines high performance and comfort. For intensive use without compromise, choose a twin or triple-disc clutch from Tilton.

Transmission related error message displays on the iDrive and vehicle goes in safe mode or what is known as limp mode where transmission no longer shifts.
If your BMW displays a transmission error message or is stuck in gear, the first thing you should do is find a safe location, turn off the engine and restart it. Wait at least one minute before you start the car. This may reset the engine control unit and the transmission malfunction message may turn off. It doesn't always work but it is worth a try.
If your BMW is back to shifting normally don't assume there is nothing to worry about. There is a high chance that you will experience the same transmission problem again. If you have noticed that your BMW has erratic shifts or is not responding properly to the gas pedal, the problem may be incorrect shift points.
Try resetting the adaptive settings. This procedure is very simple, requires no tools and only needs a couple of minutes. With a BMW scanner you can perform full system scan. If you use a generic OBD2 scanner you will get generic fault codes such as P or P which don't provide enough details on what could be the cause of the problem.
If transmission malfunction drive moderately error message pops up on your BMW, one thing that you should always check is the automatic transmission fluid level. If the transmission level is low, even slightly, your BMW can go in limp mode to protect the transmission. This happens because more transmission fluid is required during acceleration or the fluids get pushed to one side of the trans oil pan when making a turn.
Do not overfill the transmission above the recommended level as this can cause shifting problems as well. If you experiencing random shifting issues, consider changing the automatic transmission fluid and filter. That is full system capacity, which includes all the oil in the transmission, oil pan, and torque converter. If you are not going to flush the whole system but only drain the oil pan you need about 4.
BMW mechatronic sleeve is located on the passenger's side of the transmission near the end of the automatic transmission. Unplug the wire harness and inspect for oil contamination. To replace or check for leaks you will need to get your BMW up on-ramps. Remove the splash shield from under the transmission and unplug the wire harness.
Under normal condition the grommet allows the fluid to flow from the transmission to the mechatronic valve body without any fluid loss. This allows transmission fluid to make it to the mechatronic without any pressure loss which in turn allows normal gear shifting.Dropping The Motor In
The grommet or the plastic adapter can crack over time, which allows the fluid to leak at this port. When this happens the fluid pressure at the mechatronic valve body is reduced.
Because the fluid pressure is reduced the solenoids in the valve body cannot open and close properly which triggers the transmission fault or erratic shifting. The OEM part sold at BMW is usually plastic, but upgraded aluminum adapters can be purchased online and last longer than the plastic version. Another indicator that this part is broken is that you will get the Transmission Fault popup typically as you move the shifter from drive to reverse.
If you read the codes, you may get fault codes related to the valve body also known as the BMW mechatronic. BMW ZF mechatronics are notorious for problems with 2 to 1 st gear downshift or shift flare during the upshift.
These harsh upshifts and downshifts are often due to a TTC clutch failure, overheating, damaged solenoid, worn selenoid springs and other problems with the mechatronic unit. If you checked everything above but are still having problems with your BMW transmission the cause most likely is the mechatronic unit.
If you decide to replace the solenoids yourself, remember to change the foam strip that goes between the solenoid terminals and connectors. Before you purchase a replacement mechatronic unit, check with the seller or BMW dealer if programming or coding is required for your model.
It is recommended to reset the transmission module after the Mechatronic replacement.We make a wide array of adapters to mate popular and some not so popular engines to most popular transaxles.
