What gearbox model do I have?
« on: May 20, 2013, 10:25:03 AM »
Hi there,

 

I went and picked up a Manual 4WD gearbox for my Stagea on Saturday night, and I would like to know what car it was originally from. It came out of a 4WD R32 that had been converted to RB25DET. So I have a 9 bolt flywheel to go with it, but am curious to find out if the car it was in had a gearbox conversion too. Are there any codes on the gearbox that would tell me what it is and where would I find these codes?

Photos would help. That will probably be the easiest way ae
"I ran a 25 turbo on my 20 when I had stock cams. Managed 300whp at 24psi on e85 figured that was the max on that turbo"

Is a 25det big box stronger than a RWD converted R32 GTR box?

Ahh okay, I;ve always wondered why people pay big money for 25det boxes, but then again converting a GTR box would add up in the end i guess

So R32 GTR box? I couldn't find any codes on it when I washed it. Also I didn't manage to take a photo of the flywheel etc but its a 9 bolt one, not sure if it was the original one for that gearbox though. What is the difference between GTR and non GTR AWD boxes looks wise?

We did the conversion in the weekend, only problem I've found with this box is it grinds when you put it into 4th. Would this be the syncros and how hard would that be to fix/replace?

In your OP when you say converted to 25det do you mean box or engine or both.  If engine then it's most likely a gts4 box.. don't think many would put a 25det into a gtr
lol everything I say is just made up, don\'t pay any attention

Under $500, The guys I got it from didn't know what the gearbox was, they said they 'got' the car because they thought it was RWD and they wanted a RWD manual gearbox.

No one is gunna knowingly sell a gtr box for under 500 and surely they wouldn't thought a gtr was RWD, but a lot of people do think gts4s are RWD

There weren't any rego details or plate in the engine bay with the details so I guess I won't be able to find out if the R32 was a factory auto or manual.

Thanks for your help.
