fitted with GM 3.8litre V6s, the T-5 was replaced about 4 years ago with an
imported 5 speed Gertrag gearbox that is supposed to be lighter and 'more
refined' than the T-5.
The Getrag box is made in Europe (Germany?), I've never seen one, but I've
heard that it is almost as bulky as a T-5. Maybe an option for EU members on

- Thanks to all the input on this subject. I plan on going "junk yarding" in the next few weeks and hope to find a few T-5s and if I'm lucky a Type 9. I wont be buying, just viewing, measuring, and perhaps weighing. I might also check out the Pinto 4 speed box as well. I will post the results of such a trip when it is made.
