Re: 6th Gear on 156 V6 Gearbox
I can get upto 120 in 4th, slam it into 5th but have not been able to get it past 5000 rpm before corners/others force me to slow down. 6th gear. Thats my dream. Hit 7000 rpm in 5th THEN and only THEN do I go to 6th to squeeze some more. Cruising ???? Get a beemer or a merc.
However, with the family in the car, it would be nice to have low revs in 6th to reduce noise, but hell.......... Get the family another car, they can cruise along at 2000 revs doing 100 (on a legal and proper autobahn), whilst you enjoy the V6 roar (which is what its all about).
Good luck with finding an alternative 6th gear. It must be possible. I would call Autodelta directly and have a chat. If they do not do it, they might know how it can be done (then again they might just say get a beemer).
