Wow..$15K for a RUF 5speed Tranny?

Porsche 930 RUF 5 Speed Transmission - eBay (item 390317202835 end time Jun-23-11 19:41:26 PDT)

Although the ad says it is rebuilt with a LSD (pics make it look grungy), still big buxx!

It does say the pics are 'pre' rebuild, and it will be as new when delivered.... A lot of money yes, and still the old style shift as the 4 speed..... But a LOT cheaper than converting to a G50 with all the chassis work, and changing over to hydraulic. It won't be as good as a G50/50 or 50/52, but it's a very good compromise! I would be sorely tempted if i hadn't already gone the G50 route

All that aside I have a 89 930 and a 77 930 with the RUF 5spd. The 89 might be smother getting into first otherwise but the RUF gear ratio selection and the wonderful sounds it exudes is apples and oranges. I prefer the RUF.

If I had a spare $15k I would seriously consider it.

Add says direct fit into a 1974 to 88 turbo. No way, it will either fit up to 1977 or 78 thru 1988. The early cars had the short trans axle with the 935 style clutch. The 78 on wards were longer as necessitated by the later clutch assembly which required a longer bell housing resulting in the relocation rear wards of the motor and raising the rear tire pressure to 43PSI.

I haven't driven a car with the Ruf 5 speed, nice to hear that you prefer it, makes it even more of a good idea for someone to grab it.... If it had been for sale when i wanted a 5 speed box i would have bought it

Sounds Great!!!!

But-Heck I don't even know if its the real deal inside....

You hear so many stories-people think they have the real deal-(gembella-ruf-je pistons--etc..etc.) and paid good money...

In the end--They got alot of "Frosting" and no CAKE...

Just my 2cents.

Whay would you have a Ruf 5 speed in a G50/50 car?

Yasin is the keeper of a fine 89 930 stock gearing I believe, I own an 87 with a G50/50 conversion(still feeling the pain in my bank account) and Dr. Drew's who is local to me currently has his car at TuboKraft replacing a Ruf trans with a G50/50. I think the G50/52 is one of the slickest transmissions I have ever felt and I would not give up mine but I would not sneeze at the Ruf either but come on for Pete's sake 15K lol maybe 10k for a fresh one but 15k no way.

Really nice guys that typically seek big premiums for rarities. Look at the rest of their for sale inventory and you'll likely agree. If you find a used box for $7-8k and do a full rebuild with new LSD it's driving the cost + reasonable profit above $10k.

I'm right now going the shortened bell housing G50 conversion route and when completed it will have cost less than $15k. IMHO better actuation, better trans design and then those RUF ratios are too wide and tall for my application (no autobahn stormin' here ;-).

I believe the shortened G50 conversion can be done for around $10k. I had looked into it recently and spoke with a well known shop in Phx. I haven't driven a Ruf 5 speed, but I really like the G50 tranny. I would love to do the conversion. I just can't justify the cost right now. It would be cheaper to acquire an 87 narrow body and swap motors and sell off the non-G50 car; wouldn't it?

$15k is a lot of money for a 5 speed even if it is like new. Used ones are certainly far more affordable and I've been lucky with them functioning just fine as well. I paid $3k for my used G64/51 and charged $2.5 for the G50/01 that came out of the car (it had replaced a RUF 5 - speed at some point in the past which in turn had replaced the G50/50).

I drive a ruf 5spd. Haven't driven another 930 in my life so cannot compare. However, if you're in dfw, I invite you to experience it and share your impressions. Quid pro quo of course...
