6G74 Magna AWD - Manual Conversion
I currently own a 2003 Mitsubishi Magna AWD. They have the 6G74 engine in them, with drivetrain parts from the Evo 6 and 7. More Specifically:
- Front diff - open unit from the Evo 6 RS/Evo 7
- Centre diff - viscous coupling unit from the Evo 6
- Rear diff - LSD from the Evo 6 RS/Evo 7
Now for some reason, Mitsubishi Australia decided to only to produce the AWD version in automatic, so I want to convert it to manual to release some more potential.
I was hoping someone on here has already done something like this, as you have an AWD drivetrain and have perhaps done a 6G74 swap or something along those lines...
There have been a few people from Australia who are in the process of doing this conversion, however they keep running into problems. They have been trying to use an Evo 7 gearbox, but have issues with the diff ratio in the gearbox and the shape of the bell housing. Hopefully they will get this working, but it will require quite a bit of customisation.
An easier answer for me would be to find a manual 5 or 6 speed gearbox from a suitable JDM model mitsubishi. So does anyone have any recommendations as to which gearbox would be suitable for me to use??
