Re: Exige S2 with added supercharger

Sorry, Gen 7, you need the box from a vvtli, the engine comes from the same car.

Re: Exige S2 with added supercharger

Ah that makes it harder to have a prebuilt box if you already have a LSD, the longer 6th is definitely a good idea though, never been able to go fast enough to need 6th on any track, but for cruising to your track day it makes it nicer

Re: Exige S2 with added supercharger

Sound advice I guess. I wont be tracking it till new year and it will be doing approximatly 50mi/wk until spring. I have been looking through paperwork and the box was rebuilt in 2009 - sadly no details of quite what though It might well have had a rebuild due to poor syncros as this is a common fa...

Re: Exige S2 with added supercharger

Just so I have this right. Zero failures at 176ibft. More ( by unknown amount ) is almost certain gearbox death? At the HP you have I suspect it might be a ticking timebomb, if you track the car a lot it will fail, a road car you are more likely for it not to fail but I'd budget for it in your futu...

Re: Exige S2 with added supercharger

200lb/ft of torque is almost certain doom for the gearbox, my expired at Spa coming out of La Source (it's on youtube)
