    Default R8 - Type 330 gearbox innards.

    Hello All R8 fans,

    Advertisement


    Compliments of the season, hope 2018 is a bumper year.

    I am trying to find a crown wheel and pinion for the type 330 gearbox which will give a final drive ratio of 3.89 : 1 - 35 / 9 to use in my race car.
    Further, I have been led to believe that a Spanish built Fugeo used the ratio.
    Any help will be appreciated.

    Regards,

    Arthur

    Arthur,

    The simple conversion is a R16TS (336) internals in the 330 casings, known as a "Big 4Speed", and ideal for racing.

    Fuego, R12, R17, R18 crown wheel and pinion will not work, wrong direction.
    R5 atmo (385) and R16TX(385) will work, right direction.5 speed.

    Take Care,

    Thanks Ray,

    I have just completed one of those conversions for a friend in Pretoria.
    Problem for my set up is the diff ratio is 3.78 : 1 - Too long for my engine.
    However, with new engine may work.

    Regards,
    Arthur.
