Getrag S6S 560G 6 Speed Transmission - E31 850 - E32/E38 75


Thought I would post in here as well.

Looking to gauge interest in my 6 Speed Manual tranny out of my 850i.

Could sell just the tranny, or a whole 850i 6 speed conversion (pedals, linkage, driveshaft, etc). I know a few people have 850s on here.

Send me a PM if interested. You can no longer get these trannys from BMW or Getrag. I know there is a need for them in the states (bimmerforums), but thought I would check in here first.

Getrag S6S 560G 6 Speed Transmission E31 850 E32/E38 75


I was told by some supra guys that the BMW ZF 5/6 speed transmission is capable of holding 800ft lbs of torque. This transmission costs around 200-400 at any local junkyard by me so its hard to ignore.

My question is, has anybody used this with the BRZ?

Also, I read somewhere that the stock BRZ trans is 34.5" from bell housing to center of the shifter, does anyone know if this is accurate?

The ZF trans is tiny and its 30.75" from bellhousing to shifter center. This means some heavy modification of the shifter assembly will need to be done to "fit in the hole". Supra guys have no issues with fitting the ZF trans in the hole so it makes me wonder, does anybody know what distance the v160 trans is bell housing to center of shifter? This information will help me determine a lot of things going forward.

I am trying to avoid using the CD009 transmission mainly because I really want a 5 speed Getrag in this car. BUT, if this proves to be too complicated to complete in the BRZ then ill likely switch to the CD009.

If I end up being the first one to do this ill definitely make a thorough post of how its done. However, it would be nice if I wasnt the first one though
