T1 -1979 Freeway Flyer Gearbox Rebuild / Upgrade, 75.4MPH @ 3,500RPM
Classic Aircooled VW Complete T1 Gearboxes parts by Limebug
Pricing based on Exchange! Pickup and Drop Off Service. Need more from your gearbox to keep up with modern traffic speeds, you are not alone.
This upgrade is not the typical swap out for a taller 4th gear, we instead convert the gearbox ring and pinion to move all the gears by a percentage therefore gear spacing remains even and will not over strain the drivetrain.
Based on original tyre dimension of 195/65R15, standard gearbox ratios will achieve the following figures:
Standard Specs 4.375 (4th Gear)
Standard Specs 4.175 (4th Gear)
Our conversion will convert any Swing Axle or IRS gearbox to a super flyer, this will increase your motorway cruising speed, as with our T2 Bay Window gearboxes we offer three configurations of gearboxes, Freeway Flyer, Super Flyer and Ultra Flyer.
If in any doubt of whether your vehicle will be compatible with a certain spec gearbox, please get in touch, we accept no responsibility or liability for unsafe or incompatible unions.
