GSR and Putra gearbox
Posted 21 March 2003 - 06:50 PM
I managed to literally break my 1.8T gearbox :(
And now i need to change it. I am wondering if the 1.8T and Proton 4G93 DOHC gearboxes are interchangeable?
I have this info:
Primary reduction 1.680
Transfer gear 1.090
Final drive gear
- front 2.936
- rear 4.525
Proton (model number of gearbox dunno la)
Will I damage the engine if i use the std gearbox instead of W5M33?
What is the impact of using the proton one?
Hope some of u can help....

As for the standard 1.8 wira gearbox, it can't handle the torque of a turbo motor so if you install it, you're looking for trouble.the gears will shear and break...

Anyway I wouldn't recommend the 1.3 gearbox even if the gear ratios were optimal..

my fren with VR4 1.3 gearbox said that his car pick up better then the stock VR4 gearbox and top speed also not really affected cos he can go up to 200km/h
any time he wanted to...
that mean, we should use back the ori one then? how about the 4WD one? what happen if we lock it?

i am driving a putra with a gsr engine (standard). I am not sure about what gear box the car is running, i think it is the original gsr gearbox because i bought the 1/2 car (gsr) from a 1/2 car dealer in kl.
At 110km/h in 5th gear, the rpm reads 3,600rpm. If i am not mistaken the standard putra / GTi gearbox has a higher ratio (lower rpm at 110km/h). Can anybody confirm this.

You can always jack your car up and check the gearbox (if you can't find the gearbox number which is located on top of the clutch housing). It is very easy to spot a 4WD gearbox as there's the protruding shaft that drives the rear diff.
