Hi altogether,

still not on our site (www.bugat5speed.de), but ready for market within the 1st quarter of 2010.

916 gearbox conversion parts. Conversion kit is very near to the OE Porsche 916 kit that was offered in small qty. in the 70s.

Kit is with the original 916 OE repro sideshift, mechnical components inside and with a very short nosecone (even 5 mm shorter than OE parts 916). Usage of original exhaust systems is no problem.

Complete kit for usage with electronic speedometer will be about 2.100 Euro for export (without VAT).
With mechanical speedo drive it will be 2.225 Euro
Freight cost to the US about 50 Euro.

For more info (upload of pictures is limited here) please send me a PM or better mail to info@bugat5speed.de

Sorry, but what is a 916 transmission? How does it differ from a 901 or a 915? What were they installed in? I see a photo gallery on Armando's 914/6 GT website which suggests they weren't standard fare for the rest of us.

Thx,

916 is only a Porsche project name for this gearbox. It means that a 915 gearbox was adjusted to fit the 914 with own Porsche manufactured parts. It was only offered in a very small qty. that days. Nowadays it´s become more common and necessary if you install a big 6-cylinder to your 914.
Important is that you don´t need a different exhaust system and that the shift mechanism is going directly into the gearbox (like the 914 2.0 version). It does not have an extra turn of the shiftrod like the 914 1.7 had. That means it´s as precise as the later 914 gearbox (compared to the older type).

See one more picture of the mechanical components (Porsche OE repros also):

They were installed in - wait for it - 916's...

A very small run of 2,4-liter 914.6 made for 'friends of the Porsche family.'

Basically it is a side-shift, flipped R&P, 915.

Very nice! Those haven't been available in a long time, it's good to see someone doing a reproduction.

It's good to have alternatives as right now the only sideshift conversion for the 915 that is readily available is the WEVO sideshift kit.


Martin, you can add multiple pictures to a post or simply make a new post in your thread for each picture.

Andy,

thank you for your positive comment about the kit.
I tried to add more than one picture to a posting but received an error message. Already reduced the size of each pic to less than 500 KB (think that´s the most that´s possible, isn´t it so?).
Perhaps I make mistakes.
Can you give me a link to the info about how to install pictures.

If you all need more info, please let me know!

Thank you for being so kind to let me post here!

If your pictures are close to 500k in size, you can only add one per post. Currently, the upload size per post is 500k.

In that case, you need to add a post for each picture ...

Hi,
today I received further casted parts from the faundry. These parts sit on the underside of the gearbox and contain the shiftrod and the shift rocker. They still have to be milled, but currently I suffer from a cold I caught outside. Only the mechanical speedo drive still has to be finnished. I´m currently designing it with CAD. For those who use electronic speedo drive the kit will be available by the next two weeks.
Look at the pics!

Martin

Hi,
finally received the other 4 sets of the shift housings yesterday. Now we can start milling the first 5 sets of these cases. Additionally received the first batch of 8 shiftrods from the fellow that works for me. They are very good and it´s not easy to see a difference to the origianl part. Lot of work with these shiftrods, but result is good.

This kit looks a lot like the one on www.elevenparts.com

http://www.elevenparts.com/viewer.php?id=8...es/880/elevenp0

a beautiful kit, but I'd bet the price would be almost 10000 euros.

to sporty for me.

Price was in the first posting- quite easy to find (-:

The one shiftrod original 915 (from your gearbox) plus the other shift part in exchange only (or core)

23.2.2010:
pictures of the milled shift housings. The long drill for the shiftrod still has to be done. Have to do an external order on the mill first.
