    ZF vs Getrag?

    Reading this topic on swapping tranny:
    https://www.bimmerforums.com/forum/s...n-my-m50-525iT

    It says that 91-92 uses ZF and later uses GetRag

    If I have 94 and I have 92 donor (pre-vanos), will it work?

    P.S. I did compare Realoem for clutch/flywheel - identical parts. Even tranny is identical in realoem. However, engines show difference (as expected)
    So, what is true about transmissions?

    So long as the transmission, driveshaft, shifter, crossmember, etc all came from the same car, it'll fit just fine.

    Yup. Giubo is specific to the trans as well. Clutch and flywheel are the same. Don't know about clutch slave cylinder.

    Same slave cyl. too.

    If you can leave two black stripes from the exit of one corner to the braking zone of the next, you have enough horsepower. - Mark Donohue
