Description Complete Details
The BEST way to enjoy the shifting experience at a high performance level (not racing) and low RPM's at higher speeds in a 1949 through 1965 Classic Volkswagen Type 1 Beetle and Karmann Ghia is with a PRObuilt Performance Transaxle equipped with *OEM sized Short Axle/Short Spline Axles (SASS). *(It can fit others, see the Complete Details section for more information).

This transaxle is Perfect for a Performance application. Key features of this transaxle are 3.88 Ring and Pinion, overdrive 4th, along with new synchros, bearings and seals in a rebuilt SASS 12 volt platform. It comes with welded gears, steel shift forks, super diff and heavy duty side plate. All transaxles that come from the PRO's are 12 volt and do not come with OIL. The PRO's recommend This oil from LAT or this on Amazon. You will need 3.5 quarts normally.

The PRO's offer a few different transaxle's with different axle lengths. This allows us to fit wheels with different offsets onto cars where as they wouldn't normally fit. So it is recommended you pick out your wheels first, run it by the PRO's to see what axle length makes sense, then choose a Cruiser application, (Freeway Flyer) or Performance application (not racing but more aggressive driving).

I have not installed the parts yet, as I only received them yesterday, but my son and I are VERY impressed with what we got. We will be ordering from Airkewld again for sure!
