Thread: How many people have used the G50 for their builds?

  1. #1

    How many people have used the G50 for their builds?

    Hey there everyone,

    I was curious to find out how many people have used the Porsche G50 transaxle for their builds?

    We specialize in these here at Carquip, and I was curious if I could be of any assistance with either parts, or complete gearbox solutions, as well as help with any questions that anyone might have.

    It would seem that if you wanted to build a really well thought out mid-engine car, that this would be a very good choice, but I am always looking for other options and opinions.

    Thanks for looking and for your comments.

    Warmest Regards,

    Welcome to the Forum Erik! You know I am using the G50, we've talked about it a couple times on the phone. I hope there will be many people over here that can benefit from your knowledge!

    What about an AUDI 5000?

    Can you guys tinker with that?

    A friggin G50 is way over the budget!.

    It depends on the power you plan on running whether the G50 is over budget or not. I am having to add a cooling system to my G50 to get it to be able to handle the power of my little 4.0 V8. I know thw Audi trans is no where near as strong. If you plan on putting around all the time then the Audi 5000 could be fine for you but if you want it to be able to handle the torque and power of a SBC you need to go with a stronger tranny.

    I've got a G50 in my shop what dimensions do you need? I can go get the measurements for you.

    Great! I need the lenght from the flywheel housing (where it mounts to the engine) to the center of the axles.

    not perfect measurement, but it is within a 1/8. 8 3/4 inches with a Kennedy adapter. What engine are you going to be using? If you are looking at a SBC I've got an adapter and flywheel I do not need.
