    Getrag in a Dax

    Hey.

    Just fitted a Getrag 265 from an XJS into my Dax. What have others used for a gaitor for the gearstick? The round tunnel is causing me a couple of problems.

    Regards,

    David.

    Hi Geoff. I don't think there is going to be much activity for another couple of months to be honest.

    Mine has a humble 250 bhp and that is more than enough. 130 mph is easily achieved with a 4 speed box and it doesn’t disgrace you off the lights. In my opinion anything over 350 bhp is purely...

    The load rating depends on the weight they are supporting. I had to replace mine on my Dax from Eckold. Not cheap but they were the correct direct replacements.

    There is a chap who sells these on eBay for about £400 a pair. Very cheap in my opinion but no idea who he is or how good they are.
