Our five-speed transmission kits are based on the tried-and-true Tremec (formerly Borg- Warner) T-5 unit, but are hand-assembled with many custom components for each Jaguar application. Why install a five speed? First, as far as feel and ease of use are concerned, these gearboxes are worlds apart from the original Moss (aka "non-synchro") gearboxes, which are pleasingly vintage but rough and slow. The Moss box was basically out of date in the mid fifties; it was woefully obsolete by the mid sixties and certainly not up to the standards of Jaguar engines or suspensions. Our five-speeds bring the transmission up to modern standards and eliminate what's arguably the most anachronistic feature of early Jaguars. Second, many internal components are no longer available for Jaguar gearboxes (even the later, all-synchro, units), so a five-speed is sometimes the only alternative to a terminally-ill standard box. Third, with a five speed, you obviously gain another gear, making for excellent 1-4 ratios and an overdrive fifth for more relaxed cruising at highway speeds.
