    6 spped propshaft and other parts

    planning in fitting 6 speed to my ver 4 classic

    6 speed prop shaft - can i use an automatic version as reading its the same shaft, and won't interfere with 6 speed linkage

    5 speed clutch in 6 speed box - told i can use flywheel, clutch, clutch arm and starter with 6 speed box

    canm i use 5 speed gearbox cradle or do i need to use 6 speed gearbox cradle

    can anyone advise me

    Yes you can use an auto prop.

    Yes you can use your complete 5 speed clutch... ( although you may still need the 6 speed fork, can't remember )

    If you are using a 5 speed flywheel and clutch, the 5 speed starter will be fine.

    Cradle is same for both.
    speed didnt kill me, but taxation probably will

    does the auto propshaft have to be from a turbo model, all can find at moment is a non turbo propshaft

    unless someone has a spare 6 speed prop for reasonable money

    6 speed prop from a new car wont fit.

    You'd need a classic auto shaft to fit a classic car or you'll need to modify a shaft.

    I think the auto box is pretty much same for n/a or turbo, but cannot confirm that. Subaru are pretty good in not changing too many things.

    Auto prop shaft will work
    6 speed prop from any car pre hatch will work
    Original 5 speed shortened 60mm will work

    Ok...wasnt sure on the 01+ models having the same shaft...I thought their centre bearing was in a slightly different spot or something.
