    Hello folks, this thread may be a bit old, so sorry for reviving it (if it is meant to stay dead, let me know)


    Please note of the following info regarding the 6 speed transmissions:


    Info on here regarding the GS6-37BZ/DZ is correct. Nothing to add to it.
    Except its maximum torque - 350nm (258ft lbf)



    However I noticed some people are referencing the Getrag transmissions:
    The code for it is GS6-17BG (B = Petrol (Gasoline) G = Manufacturer GETRAG)
    There were no DG models (D = Diesel) as the transmission max rated torque is 320nm (236ft lbf)


    I contacted BMW to get the info as I wanted to get a 6 speed transmission for my S50B32 (EU) engine.


    You can probably exceed the max torque on the transmissions - Everyone does it, but for a couple of dollars more I personally opted for the GS6-37


    The GS6-17's were placed in most post E90 cars (Including E60's, E81-87's)


    They were primarily used on the following engine sizes (Including some turbo models) 2.0, 2.5, 2.8 (E.g. 120i (E8x), or 325i(E9x/F3x) or even later 528i(E6x etc) (but had a weird setup for the auto engine stop start, be careful not to get one of those transmissions)

    Will the OEM braces as mentioned by the OP work for this setup?
    why? unless you are ordering it new from BMW a zf6 speed from any e46 330i will be the same effective item and have much less abuse; do you want a gearbox that has been beaten up by a 333hp mad hatch or a 220hp lazy sedan?

    if the Z3m has the provisions to install the E36 euro 6 speed transmission mount (remember z3 is a e36) then using a G420 + euro trans mount would be the smartest option

    Hey Wanganstyle,

    I read almost all the post, we have plenty of those gearbox here in Costa Rica, specially the gearbox of the e90 320D. I tried to read your post on e30tech but I received an error from the website using this link http://www.e30tech.com/forum/showthread.php?t=110010. Do you have the write up in other place or here on R3V, I am really looking forward for this, my e30 260 gearbox is not a good condition.

    Obviously it's been done;

    YouTube dyno video posted years ago;

    https://youtu.be/51CG_qxUmKE


    There are a 2x m20b25 + 320d 6mt cars running around San Francisco; both are street legal California smog legit cars with original & stock m20b25 engines.

    Akg shifter will be the best bet as it just works; it's very easy to measure the length you need once transmission is installed

    Making your own custom shift linkage will be the second option; and really this is the way to do it

    Neither of the owners will be willing to remove pieces of their running cars to sell to you

    If you have the $$budget$$ just drop off the car at German auto sport for full service work. Drop it off 4eat or 5mt and pick it up 6 speed; they do this conversion in house.

    part number is pictured; try hunting google and post the results?
    this box was from a e92 non turbo inline 6; between real OEM and google image search you should know the most about it shortly

    In regards to driveshaft used with 6mt this data is public on the Internet and known for years.

    One more varient; getrag branded from e90/92 early 2006

    It has transmission ears just like a zf5 or e46m getrag 6 speed, input just like e46 zhp with 22 fine spline and pilot bearing in the flywheel.

    So this "getrag" with ears would be the easiest to install since there are ears to bolt standard e30/36 Trans mounts onto.

    Remember this zf family of transmissions includes the diesel 320d 2005/6 e46 for sohc tilt and also getrag branded units in newer e90/92, z4, e60, etc.
