new parts: Leen AE86 6MT

We've been monitoring a great thead on ae86irl with interest for a while now, as some really tasty IS200/Altezza 6 speed gearbox to rwd 4AGE kits are being designed, developed, and built right here in Ireland! Time to share with the rest of you if you have not seen them already! The system uses this finely machined piece of 6082T6 Aluminium to mate the 6 speed J160 box found in the Altezza/IS200 directly to the 4AGE bell housing.

The first few units have been made, which I find amazing, many of these well thought projects never get off the ground, and we are looking forward to the initial results which should be soon as they are reported to be testing in car this month.

Leen Gearbox Conversions are behind all this magic and you should really check out his very good website with loads more pics and information. I especially like the very elegant solution for keeping the shifter position in the factory place, no butchering of the transmission tunnel here! GarageHachi is tempted, a tuned 4AGE + 6 speed with a 4.1 final drive for nice highway cruising sounds so good..
