GFT MT 82 six-speed

What is the word on the new GFT MT 82 six-speed manual gearbox in the new D90?
Will they mate up to the LT230 and the 300 tdi?
How are they for durability? I like its gearing.

Not sure on adapting it to a 300 (question for Dave Ashcroft) but I too am a huge fan. Early production ones (07my) had some tolerance/noise problems but later ones shift like sports cars.

Getrag makes great transmissions. I had a 04 mini cooper s and it had one. One of the best sticks I have ever owned.

Yes I am a fag for having a cooper s.

If you want to shift a MT-82, then swing by your local Ford dealer on your way home and drive a stick mustang... IIRC, the mustang variants, ford Transit and defender transmission all come from the same plant in Halewood

Here is a view of the puma driveline:
http://www.landyonline.co.za/specs/s...007_engine.jpg

And here is the 6MT1500 on Getrags website...

http://www.getrag.de/en/235


Compared to the R380, this is a fantastic trans - huge ratio spead (7.33 vs 4.39) compared to the R380 makes it ideal for engines with a wide torque spread - but less ideal for a road racer who wants short ratios.
I look at the above pictire of the Puma driveline, and see no reason at all why this couldn't be mated to a TDi. A new/modified flywheel housing and/or adaptor plate, and the usual flywheel/clutch combination that would be pretty easy to work out, and it'll work surely? It looks longer than the 380, so driveshaft mods, new gearbox mounts, and probably trans tunnel mounts are probably on the list, but I can't see why this wouldn't be a great upgrade for those running defenders who want a better driveline.

If you are going to all of that trouble, you might as well stick in an NV4500 as the adapters exist.

if you are going to all that trouble you may as well buy a "1985 rebuilt" Puma which seem to be popping up everywhere.

There might be a slight difference in cost between those options.....

Is the NV4500 a six speed with similar gearing?

The NV4500 is a 200 lb. iron case fully synchronized 5 speed overdrive truck transmission that is found in 3/4 ton and larger GM and Dodge products. Nice transmission, nearly unbreakable, most commonly with 5.6 to 1 granny low.

Nice, but overkill for most any Land Rover.
