79' 930 - G50 Conversion

Well thought I would make a thread about my G50 conversion.

When I bought the car it had another R&P in the 930 transmission. As I thought the engine cruised a bit high on the highway, I replaced back to stock R&P last year.

After reading about some G50 conversion I decided to do one myself.
I was looking for a G50 with shorten bell-housing, but it was not easy to find at that time.

Bought a G50/00 of ebay in Germany.



Since I did not want to cut the torsion tube I needed to have the Bell-housing and main shaft shortened.

I found a mechanic in Norway that was familiar with the G50 transmission to do the machining for me.
This guy is really a turbo guy, so had to choose him for the job
He is having one of the worlds fastest bug at around 950 hp and uses G50 in his bug dragster.

Then It was just to strip down the transmission, and then clean the housing before sending it away the to the machine shop.
The internals looked very nice with no noticeable wear.

Started with removing the rear cover, 5'th gear and reverse.



Then I need to separate the main shaft.
