Re: [DML] Porche transmission compatibility in Delorean

The Porsche transmissions will bolt right up to the
DeLorean axles.

I have a 915 that I am fitting in to 6068, so I can
verify the axles bolt up to that one.  I am told the
905 and G50 are the same bolt pattern.  The automatic
also has the same bolt pattern, but at one point Bob
(97 DeLorean time machine) said that it required that
he make longer drive shafts.  (the transmission is not
as wide?)

The G50 transmission was used in the 3 rotor Mazda
conversion.  I know of no other G50 conversions.

The 915 has been used by a few others, and I was told
it was a good fit as is.  However, I have recently
discovered that in order to use it without cutting the
frame, the CV joints are at a significant angle.  That
will take a big toll on the reliability of the joints.
 So the question becomes, do you replace CV joints as
a matter of maintenance to avoid being stuck on the
road?  Or cut the frame to install it correctly?

What are you trying to accomplish?
