Gearbox Types

   Our bell housings fit any VW bus gearbox from the 002, 091 and 094 ranges, as used on all rear engined VW buses from 1968 - 1990 (1992 Syncro). However, there are a huge range of gearbox variants with different combinations of gear ratios and other features. The Subaru EJ series engines all rev to at least 6000 rpm, which is considerably higher than any of the engines VW ever fitted. Some of the gearbox variants are better suited to use with a modern, high revving engine than others, but the choice also depends on your application and tyre size.

   The table below lists most of the gearbox types, alaong with all their ratios. Also shown in the right hand columns are the revs the engine will be doing in top gear at a range of different speeds. The calculations all assume standard 185/80 R14 tyres, or others with an equivalent diameter are being used. This makes it easier to see the affect the varying ratios have on rpm.

   If you are using a different tyre size, and want to know what rpm your engine will be doing at one of the above speeds with a particular gearbox, calculate it as follows:

   rpm =         651         
        ------------------------  x rpm at required speed from above table
        your tyre diameter (mm)

   For example, if you had an AAP gearbox, and wanted to know the rpm at 80 mph with 205/55 R16 tyres:

   205/55R16’s have a diameter of 632mm:

   rpm = (651 / 632) x 3935 = 4053

   Alternatively, there are lots of useful tools on the internet for calculating rpm from gear ratios and tyre sizes. Google gear ratio rpm calculator or similar to find them.

 

   If anyone can fill in any of the gaps in the above table, or has similar code / ratio info for the 002 and 091 boxes used in baw windows, please mail it to me, and I’ll fill in / expand the above table. Thanks
