Hey Martin.

I sat here for probably an hour and stared at how this all goes together. Now that I think I have a good idea of how it all goes together I was thinking possibly down the road it would be very easy to modify the small block of aluminum to include a shift gate along the back much like what Wevo made.

But one thing at a time but that would be really cool if you made that down the road.

Hi,
could do the housings first. Will start the external order tomorrow. Housings finnished now. Look at pictures.
@Turboman: if you used my shifter there´s no need to make such a shift gate at all. My shifter has three independant layers and there´s reall no need to do such thing.

Hi altogether,

am nearly finnished now with all parts. Received further parts from the turning workshop (ballhead-lever, shiftrod). Only thing left still is the intermediate plate of the shift housing. We started making clamping fixture yesterday and I can probably start milling on Monday.

Mounted an old magnesium case 915 gearbox with my parts. Used the original 916 shift housing as my intermediate plates are still not finnished. Only made one adjustment of the shiftrods inside and the gearbox shifted really brilliant.

Will make some more pictures of the mounted unit and show you (didn´t have my digicam with me when I was in the workshop yesterday).

We made a further and even better batch of these bearing supports that have to be mounted into the gearbox. They are milled out of a block of billet aluminium. Pictures to follow also.

By mid of next week all parts will be done. Only issue then is the mechanical speedo drive. Will be important for those that will use the old magnesium case 915 gearbox. That will be the very final part.

Will keep you informed and post further pictures.

Martin Bott

I sent Martin a few questions about the kit.

One thing he told me was that this was not going to be a 1 run of X number of kits and it's done. he stated that he will have kits in the future for sale.
I too would like to buy a kit to replace my Vellios unit. I am going to buy one in the future once the iffy job situation I have becomes more stable.

His kit price is very reasonable. In the FWIW department, I did get a response back from Elevenparts.com on the exact repo kit they have(see below), and I was right on the money. Their kit is $10,000.00 euros plus delivery.

Hi Ron and all of you:

it´s done. Today milled the intermediate plates. See pictures. I know of the prices of the others. I think they´re much too high. Might be that I will have to increase the price for the version with mechanical speedo drive a little, but it was my aim to offer this kit at a reasonable price.

Martin,

What's the little black switch in the housing for- a back up light?

Looks great!

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.

Martin,
is it possible to get a set without the new nosecone? Just the actual shift components?


If so, what would the price for that be?

@0396: it´s the switch for the reverse gear light (back up light)

@Sir Andy: sent you a PM

@turboman808: will try to keep my promise on delivery date still this week (latest early next week).

Thank you all for your interest and your positive comments on the parts.

interesting question Andy,

I just sent Martin an e-mail asking the same thing since I already have a Vellios side shift installed and working.
And, I would suspect that there are a lot of Vellios units out there in 914/6's that owners would possibly be eager to jump at the chance to benefit from a possible shift upgrade without a huge new expense.

Just a thought.

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
