Now we are on decision - to make or not to make?
The talk is about close ratio gears, for our cars (GT4) it's produced only by C-One in Japan, look it here:
Their price is 2800$ ExWorks, with airdelivery it will be up to 3500$ because of "nice" weight of the parcel.
We can do make the stuff like this, even upgraded, i.e. little bit more nicely selected ratios, more stronger steel, more tough treatment of the material, etc.
We have some tech claims to C-One stuff, because we have in our team (consists of 1 ST185 & 4 ST205 for rally + 3 ST205 for writing the verbatim before the rally) in competition with dog-gang gearboxes, and C-One sometimes give us the problems of damage & in some sense we aren't pleased with ratios selected, so there is a space for improvement & upgrade.
Our project price will be 1800$, i.e. minus 1K$ at least. May be even more cheaper, it's hard to say before production start.
Also our delivery will be much cheaper, because it based on lower tariffs.
Now we are on the decision point - to make or not to make?
We don't want to make it & then to put it on the shelf as in museum.
SO - Do you think it could be interesting for you?
Please input your IMHO. For us to estimate the demand.
Any questions are welcome.

He was on the GT4dc forum. Talking about making everything better than the big brands for about half the price.
I don't know if people there bought stuff off of him and send him money, but he is now where to be found.
Was looking for some info for you, but I see you are registered.

How hard is it to swap the final drive on our trannies?
I know you need to swap the output shaft, ring gear and oil pump gear but I've never cracked a tranny open before so I'm not sure. Does the whole thing have to come apart?
Anything else have to be replaced while doing this like bearings or synchros?

So for most guys, swapping to a 4.285 unit or an aftermarket unit is all the more important. Just make sure you understand you that will affect your gas mileage.

It is an E-series trans, but I don't know the specific number. E53 sounds right, as the earlier Camry V6 MT ('89-'91) is an E52. The MR2 guys use the gears from it and throw out the final drive. You can put together a good autocross trans that way. For some reason, Toyota put numerically high 1-5 gears in it and the numerically low final drive. It evens out to be similar to a normal E-series trans gearing.Redrkt01 wrote:phattyduck wrote:I must be the only one that wants the 3.625:1 final drive out of the '92-'94 V6 MT Camry trans, eh?
Is that the E53....I've noticed that strange FD before. It would me great for DD gas mileage, but if you want it sporty you'd have to swap the gearing.
