Derek,

 

Any chance you know the weight of the complete TL70 and/or the CD009?  I'm looking at options for building a street card.

 

thanks,

cary


Courtesy @VQ_S30 on IG. Please follow/like his content if this was helpful for you. It’s a heavy sucker, but the weight is well positioned relative to both axles. 
 

this assumes Derek’s bell housing is roughly the same weight as the stock one. Not an unreasonable assumption.

T-5 was used in the 280zx turbo cars and some 300zx cars . G-Force may know of other models , but you need the bell housing from the turbo Z 

Drive shaft 

I have a T5 / G-Force gear box that I've been very happy with.  It's in my L6 turbo road course car that makes a bunch of power.  It make some straight cut gear sounds but has stayed together for some time.

It’s a beautiful sound isn’t it ?!

So to clarify things a bit. I produce the bell housings and sell them to Godzilla. They sell them individually or as part of a kit. Godzilla can offer a level of support that I can't and I have had nothing but excellent dealings with them on other things. After I catch up with demand I will start selling bell housings off the shelf but that most likely will be the extent. Godzilla is taking pre orders and the last I heard they had 8 openings left. The patterns are at the foundry waiting for an opening but the holidays are screwing up the schedule.

 

Godzilla charges the same as I will be.  

 

I have no real schedule for the TL70. I have to finish the CD009 castings I currently have on order then I can jump on the new one. Probably 4 months minimum before I have a working solution and bell housings to sell.

 

Hope that clears things up.

Derek -- any updates on the tl70 swap?

Manuals are so yesterday, get a DCT conversion, it will shift faster than you can and they are not relatively heavy. Particularly compared with a CD009 lump. That's if you want the best performance option, what is the point in handicapping a good engine with a less than optimal transmission?

🤷🏽‍♂️ Meh... good point, but if I break the CD00A, I can always get a spare from a junkyard. Plus the L28et I’m running is already so old school, it makes the tranny feel like an iPhone. 
 

Are you familiar with a DCT conversion for an L-series motor?
