turbo proof gearbox bmw s14,s38,m30,m88

Hello

I was looking for a long time for a good and sheap replace gearbox for the high power s14/m30/m88/s38 engines.
the normal getrag ones are strong,but when starting with heavy turbo's,and high nm outputs the stress on the boxes is to high after a time.
the older type getrag are more and more difficult to find.and prices go up.
its cheaper to find a other zf,then rebuild youre getrag.

so after long looking 2 type boxes are very strong.knowed for very high power output and are sheap to find.
the boxes must be used with a single mass flywheel and a sachs 765.the rest keeps Original bmw

the diesel box gs5-39dz with 1 gear 5.24 and 2 gear 2.91 not bad to a little long gearing.

the petrol box s5d320z with 1 gear 4.20/4.21 2 gear 2.49 a little better gearing.

I know from my new gearbox specialist that the internals are allmost the same,only other ratios.

the problem is,it will not fit together to a s14/m30/m88/s38

I found a man that have build a special jig,that the 2 bellhousing are cut with cnc,exactly are centered on the crankshaft.
and then welded together with zero play.100% center balanced welded.
the center jig keeps the center exact(0.01 tolerance).and the 2 bellhousing are bought so machined that they laying on each other with a hear fraction between.perfect for welding.

my box is under construction.I post all the pics here.and test it on my turbo M88/s38

on the same moment I am building a transaxle gearbox for the bmw m60,with a audi box.for a rear engine project.

that man have more jigs to build them on other engines to.

Chevy 350
Mazda rx7
Toyota 1JZ/2JZ
Opel CIH
Opel OHC
Nissan RB
Nissan SR20
BMW M10/M30/S38
Saab

but I have promised him.first mine box,and test it.and then put his email info on this post.

when somebody needs more info please mail me.

best regards

Hello Eero

You are right,he is from finland I believe.there lives the specialist.
I will put his info and name here on this post.but he asked me.first doing my box,and the his info.(these are his exact words)

It's ok to put my e-mail address in the forums but please wait until we have done your gearbox ready so that you can speak from experience. Ok?

I am looking for a specialist for a long time,on this way you can make a turbo proof gearbox for a very good price.I told him that many people are looking for something like that.and I said that I will post this on m5board and bimmers forums,so there is nobody in the future that have problems any more with building a heavy tuned s14,s38,m30,m88 and is on the search for a stronger box.

for me this is how the forum must be used,helping other with there build.
I do not do this to make some money.I only like to tell there is a other way.

best regards

turbo gearbox s38 and m106

Hello

A quick update

a friend of me Tim Maatman(you can find him on facebook he makes a lot of turbo cars)
he helped met out with his solution to make a bullet proof
turbo gearbox,with rebuilding a 6 speed diesel and petrol gearbox.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZF_S6-53_transmission

I will use the petrol version for the s38 and the diesel version for the m106.

but no I found this online.
I think this will help a lot of people there for I post it here.
