Mark - How do you keep track of which car you are working on? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

There's more than one? I told my wife I'm building up the red car. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

So I need a trans. Can anyone help me find the right trans for sale. Not just type but an actual trans for sale so I can just purchase and drive home. I'm around Newark, DE 19711 so anything within about a 2 hour drive would be great. Needs to be a 5mt that will hold up to the 6 cylinder eg33. Thanks!

*I would really like it complete with clutch, flywheel, trans stubs, ect.

Go back and read Chris' or my build thread. Pretty sure all the clutch/tranny info you'll need is there. The TY75 MT5 comes with 4:11's or 3:9's. The 3:9's will give you better hi way gearing.

I don't want to find the right trans, I want you guys to find it for me so I can buy it. Really.

A little controversy, or not.

I'm using the transaxle out of a U.S. 1998 Forester into which I've fitted an OBX helical gear limited slip differential. Haven't had it up to highway speeds, so I can't provide opinions. In fact, I haven't yet had it past second gear...

Good luck with your project!

I have had a fwd subaru trans in my now svx powered 914 for about 9 years. It uses a push type clutch but the stock clutch is strong enough for n/a applications. And it does not need to be converted from awd.

Back on the suby build
I sent out the wire harness to get done. It's almost ready.
Timothy is making some stock looking gauges that will work with the suby sensors.

I don't know why you'd "farm out" that harness? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wacko.gif) JK. It's about time you got back on the conversion. Those projects can bury themselves if you let them sit too long. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif) Kent

If I didn't farm it out, it wouldn't get done. The 3.2 conversion is almost on the road so I'd like to start working on suby assembly soon.

Oh, I get it. JK. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

A guy on the samba. He's done quite a few and seems very responsive and easy to work with. Asked me questions how I was using the engine, where ecu was going, how I wanted fans to work. Much more than smallcar- fill out the form and send us the money. I think he's also about $150 less than smallcar but that really wasn't how I chose him. There's so much to do on a suby conversion that I wanted as much help and support as I could get.

He mostly worked with the vanagon guys. Here's some of his info - www.facebook.com/jeffrobenolt

Here's the harness all done and ready to ship. Jeff labels all the wires and makes it as plug and play as possible. He asked me where and which direction each wire should go and set up the controller for the radiator fans. He told me I'm welcome to call with questions when I get around to putting it all together.

I don't want to be known as the guy to where 914 projects go to die. So... Making plans to send this car off to get built by one of the members on this site. He will do engine, trans, mechanicals and get the car running and then I will work on interior and paint. I have to make it a roller and then deliver it around march. At least that's the working plan for now. Details to follow. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif)

The plan is to put it together with all the parts already purchased. I'll let the builder talk about his plans when he's ready.
