The CAV GT40 OZ Edition is designed to accommodate two styles of transaxle gearbox: either the 6-speed Getrag (Audi 01E) or 5-speed ZF. The Getrag transaxle is compact and lightweight with a familiar shift pattern. It is also the less expensive choice. The ZF transaxle is larger and better to suited to more powerful engines. It features an original-style dog leg shift pattern.
- Getrag / Audi / Porsche - what is the difference?
Our 6-speed transaxle is the familiar Getrag 01E. Confusion arises when referring to Audi and Porsche variants of this gearbox. In truth they are all similar and were used in various applications at Audi and Porsche. Getrag is however the core manufacturer. For our application, we specify a 2-wheel-drive version with 108mm output shafts.
- What engines can be installed in the CAV GT40 OZ Edition?
The CAV GT40 OZ Edition is designed to accommodate a wide range of engines however due to emission regulations in Australia, it may be difficult to fit older engines so the amazing Ford Coyote is the recommended choice in Australia. If choosing an alternative engine make sure that it will be able to pass current emission requirements.
