Original GTV 3.0l race car build gearbox upfront (Nelson)

Post by kevin » Mon Oct 31, 2011 10:09 am

Firstly this is not my car but I did do engine conversion for owner Nelson. PowerMods are fitting gearbox upfront and all suspension,brakes supplied by me.
PowerMods are famous for "his" 155 twin turbo rear mount and new 155tt front mount being built.
The GTV is just gonna be a fun club racer with 15'' rims and later two big turbos bolted on.
Only sad part is it was a beautiful origional GTV 3.0 carbi

Kevin I'm either blind or illiterate, but what kind of gearbox is that (car/manufacturer)?

Surely you mean a ZF from an M3? E36?
