WHY DO I NEED A MANUAL GEARBOX CONVERSION?
The K4C 025 and K4A 025 gearboxes are extremely reliable, but there is a whole new world of motoring offered by a manual gearbox conversion. SLSHOP opts for transplants with modern units, including 6-speed Ge-Trag transmissions. Where traditionally a W113 Pagoda manual or automatic gearbox would rev at 3500-4000 rpm when cruising at 60/70mph, the 6-speed will sit at 2500rpm at 65mph.
WHAT WILL IT DO FOR ME?
The high-revving engines offered with all three W113 Pagoda variants are largely untapped with the standard 4-speed automatic and manual transmissions. The uprated modern manual gearboxes allow you to unleash the rev-range, taking charge of your Pagoda for more spirited driving. The lower revs when cruising will also improve cruising quality for both the driver and passenger.
WHAT WILL IT DO FOR THE CAR?
Choosing to upgrade your gearbox to either a five or six-speed transmission will transform the driving experience, extending the rev-range, offering more control over power output and enable less stress on the engine when cruising at higher speeds. In addition, it will give your vehicle a character unlike any others. With a modern five or six speed transmission, the vehicle’s character will be more akin to a sports car and is the perfect starting point to make further modifications to the performance and handling.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Altering the originality of your W113 Mercedes Pagoda is not for everyone, which we understand. But if you’re keen to enjoy your Pagoda and have something truly unique to you, look no further than this exciting modification for your W113 Pagoda.
