Good effort and congrats for seeing it thru, would be interested to know how much the project has cost and how many hours went into it, still think it's cheaper to drive to Canada and drive back with a g16 cableshift gearbox and driveshafts in the trunk :lol:

Dattman- You were right on the money :lol: . this project has me at just over $1200, the axle's were close to $500, JY Hyundai trans+axles+shifter ass+clutch and flywheel+mounts was just under $300. i had to have a 11mm crank spacer made at $100. it wouldn't have cost much over 1k but i broke 2 brand new cv joints trying to separate them to put on my new axle's. At just over $50 a pop :oops: . and if i had to guess i have around 25hr's in just the trans swap, not including the time i stopped for beer and brainstormed.

So you were right about it be cheaper to drive up and get a cableshift 1.6. But on the other hand my car is now in a class of very few. I have beat the living shit out of this trans in the last few weeks. i have wore out 4 brand new 195-50/15's with my right foot. i would have broken probably ten gt transmissions if was still using them.

Yeah you do need everything for the g16 cable shift conversion, heavy 1600 flywheel and clutch, shifter etc, still need to fabricate one mount I beleive or buy one from dmwdave in Aus and you need a wedge shaped shim for the intermediate shaft to bolt to, not quite a straight bolt in but pretty close.

EngineWhisperer thanks for sharing :thumbsup:

does the 1.6 cable trans use the same axles as the 1.3/1.6 rod trans? if so im wondering if the esteem carrier bracket will work. when i put the 1.6 in my swift the problem was the angle of the support bracket to the block. it was a wedge.

I don't beleive so because the diff sits at least 10mm further from the crank, the large frame gearbox has 70mm centres and a bigger diff, also the cable shift box has bigger inner cv's, diff might also have a different spline count as well.

We can get the Hyundai trans for 94 inc diff at pick-a-part wreckers and 50% off that price on the special weeks so for an almost bullet proof trans with availability its a great effort.
