Speedtek Close Ratio Gearset for Nissan Skyline GT-R

Speedtek close ratio gearset for R32 GT-R

I have noticed the guys from Speedtek for several years. They had a well priced close ratio gearset for the RB series transmissions. RB26 and RB25 FS5r30a.  I wanted to try out a set, and recently I was in contact with them.  The OS88 transmission I had in Nismo #500, went into/is going into Big Bird 2 so the trans in the Nismo was just a stock R33 transmission.  In theory a stock trans, making near stock power with a sprung hub clutch should be ok, but too stock is too boring.    I also have a Getrag V160 from an R34 GT-R, but I will keep that for another project, or another demo car here at Toprank Importers. 

The gearset that we are getting is:

1st 2.69
2nd 1.69
3rd 1.24
4th 0.99
5th 0.70

Speedtek billet center plate for FS5R30a transmission

Along with that we are getting a billet 6061 center plate, an overhaul kit, and early shift sleeve.

Nissan gearbox codes

F = Floor Shift
S = Overdrive
5 = five forward gears
R30 = gearbox series
A = first revision

Speedtek says this setup is good to at least 800 bhp.  Of course how you drive, the clutch you have, and even the fluid you use can have an effect on that. If you have lost a 3rd gear in an RB25, RB26, or 300ZX transmission then you  know you will need something more sturdy to make it survive.

Stock ones run hard, always let go. Upgrade it now, or upgrade it later if you run the car hard.
