None, there is nothing that bolts up, the closest would be the ZC32s swift sport 6speed, haven't seen anyone do it yet, the box is quite large so nobody knows if it will fit between the chassis rails, there is a thread on redline gti that is worth reading, no one has found if the front belhousing of a j18 case will bolt up to the main case of the 6speed box yet, if it does then the j18 box is not too hard to fit into a gti. http://www.redlinegti.com/forum/viewtop ... =7&t=42794

I don't think a 6 gear would be of any good on a g13b.

why you want 6 speed? why is 5 speed not enough?
what will you need it for, and how "long" last gear need to be? (like 160km/h (100mph) @ 8600 rpm in 5/6 gear)

5 gears is not enough, maybe on gravel but on tarmac 6 would be better, my speed in each gear at 8400rpm is roughly, 70kph/100/130/150/180kph, the gearing and rpm drop is perfect for my local track but some circuits are a bit faster, having a 6th gear would mean I don't need to change my diff ratio for the few times I run on faster circuits.

Hmm i dont have experience with circuits.. we only do rally on more or less twisty roads.. so we dont need longer gearbox than 150/160kph max.. and at this point 5 gears are enough :) we have mg zr 105 with 6 speed sequential too (about 170kph at 8000rpm in 6th) and it's kinda too much work with shifting :)

did you ever tried how much time per lap you lose with short gearbox on circuits where u need longer fd?
