Hello,

I'll be getting a Alfa GT 1.9JTD '06-'08.

It nerves me to se that in 1st gear car goes like 36-40, I know this isn't petrol engine, but it has a lot of torque and good power. Also when driving on highway around 130, car revs in 6th around 2500rpm. I wanted to reduce that so when driving 130 engine in 6th goes around 2k rpm.

Now since car has 3.545 final gear ration, I wanted to change this to 2.9-3.0 so I can get achieved rpms' and speed in each gear. My question is, how can I achieve this? Also, I'm planning to change the standard LSD for the Q2 LSD.

Thanks in advance, cheers...

On the LSD go for the Quaife rather than the Q2 - they are about the same price but the Quaife is better quality

Thanks for fast answers, I'll look into those Quaife LSDs'.

I'm wondering if it is possible to fit gearbox of another car to Alfa GTs' engine? And by that to be compatible with LSD...

Cheers...

This is interesting:

It seems to imply that the GTA box is the same as the JTD, but the ratios will be different I'm guessing...

You will buy the relevant Quaife helixical LSD for your gearbox if you change it rather than for your car so I presume so...

Best wishes,
Nick
