X5 4.6is manual gearbox


I'm Nick from Germany and I'd like to introduce my X5 4.6is with manual Getrag S6S 420G gearbox. The car is AWD and absolute everything is working just like on stock car. Due to the very narrow gear ratios of 6-speed box and final drive ratio of 3.91 the car has very effective acceleration.

The conversion is freshly done, but the cars drives great so far - no electronical issues, no vibrations etc. The whole conversion took 11 months. Only 4 custom parts were used.

The car already has Hartge headers, custom ECU tune will be supercharged soon.
