Tip To 6Spd Conversion


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I have a 2000 C2 , Canadian car - Ultimately I was looking for a standard from day one, but I could not pass the deal up... long story short... I miss a standard gearbox.

I have done a quick search and have not seen any indication that anyone has documented the swap from Tip to 6spd .... so... does anyone know if it has been done before...?

If I were to sell I will be taking a hit due to 100K miles, and the fact it is a Tip... so the second question would be: Is it going to be more cost effective to do the swap (Parts only, I will be doing labor) or sell and buy a standard?

Any insight is appreciated :)

Hi,

I don't know if this will be of any help to you, but rebuilt 6-speed manuals are available and you may even get some advice about such a conversion from this source: http://forums.pelicanparts.com/porsche-996-997-forum/545796-factory-remanufactured-c2-6-spd-w-lsd.html

(I have no personal or financial connections with this source at all!)

Good luck!

Jim

Hi Chris, Just wondering if you ever went through with it? I was considering the same conversion...\\

cheers,

Not yet... i have been contemplating getting an 04 GT3 ... and giving the C2S to the wife (hard for her to complain then :lol: )

Judging by the prices of 996's now days ... i am doubtfull i could pull off the swap for less than selling the auto and purchasing a standard ...
