The transmission and suspension are undergoing a big upgrade/conversion at the monent which are both related.

I am converting it from a 915 transmission to a G50 transmission.  The latter being able to take more power as well as deliver a more precise gear change.  The G50 is hydraulic as compared to cable of the 915.  The only downside is that the G50 is heavier and takes more power to drive it.

The second and related upgrade is to install RSR Coilover Suspension.  The G50 transmission requires the shape of the torsion tube to be altered so the torsion bars have to be removed so this was the perfect excuse for upgrading to the RSR spec.

Ancilary to this work I have also powder coated the fron wishbones; installed new spring plates with a rosejoint fitment, and had RSR web strengtheners welded to the sock towers in the engine bay.

I am nearing the end of this work and within the next week or so should be able to post pictures of the project from start to finish.
