    Gear box query

    Hi guys

    Query on my bimmer which I will be doing as a project car soon.

    Wanted to know how complex would installing a 6 speed box be from a 5 speed really.

    I.e. would I need to play about with the ratios etc

    That's a really expensive mod considering the expected car value, I would expect doable and the close ratios may not be ideally matched to the car but you may get more benefit from a lower ratio diff / LSD
