my car is an auto; did the 5sp have a different ratio then the auto?

how much?

yes, the front and rear on an auto were 4.10 stock
if you put in the 3.91 from a 5spd, you will casue damage to your xfercase and you will be upset.

Could you please tell me if the 5sp center transfer case is different from the auto transfer case? There is a part # difference and wondering why? If they are would the guts be the same? I may have one from a std.

the transfer case is different yes, to bolt up to the auto/manual tranny, its different length and shape overall but the guts inside are basically all the same.
If you have one from a std, see if you can find someone with a good auto that you can trade with. They are hard to find for a 5spd and the internal swap job is a big one. Get ready to replace lots of seals and bearings and have some special tools.

Thanks, appreciate you taking the time to explain this. I suppose I'll just wait ti'll an auto one comes up. Since there seems to be more auto's out there should be easier to source one..:-)

^sent you a pm.......ya there's quite a few IXes around here.....also if your interested I know of a complete '88 5spd for sale that would be good for parts. I'd get it myself but I'm to busy parting out other E30's and an E28 at the moment....but once those are gone I may grab it.

oops, ya sorry for the thread jack, but I guess it will keep the thread closer to the top, and maybe someone with a front diff for an auto will see it faster*th-up*

well it's good to know there are quite a few 5sp transfer cases out there. It's getting tough finding stuff for these cars from what I hear and harder to come by a good car too!
I managed to get my hands on a red one needing only minor body and pretty clean interior.
Nothing fancy in terms of options- fogs, ellipsoids, no OBC, no cruise, comfort interior cloth. But the A/C WORK!!! woohoo!! needs a couple control arms, brakes, maybe a cv boot kit, and the obvious..LOL..thanks for keeping me in the loop!!

well if you're looking for parts, there are a few of us here with that stuff. No diffs or xfercases left in my garage, but lots of other goodies.
