MFactory Gearbox internals GT-Turbo/Glanza (UPDATED ROUGH PRICING)

128 posts in this topic

Hi all.



GAUGING INTEREST THREAD



As you may or may not know we are MFactory Europe, the main distributer of all MFactory parts.


Previously this has been of little interest to you lot; however we have an opportunity now to get some parts put into production.



MFactory have said if we have 30+ people who would be willing to order uprated gear sets for the Glanza/GT-Turbo they would be very interested in putting these into production.


The only thing that has been discussed at the moment is gear sets, however if there is enough interest in final drives, synchro's or master rebuild kits I'm sure the same would apply.



Costs at the moment are unknown as no R&D has been done by MFactory, however I would expect them to be competitively priced against the likes of Cusco and other MFactory products for similar models.



Here is a link to our website just to wet your whistle a little and show you the vast ranges that we already sell with confidence.

Thanks

The real issue with our boxes is 3rd gear.



Its what everyone shits. I must have rounded about 5x 3rd gears before I gave up.



Pricing structure is what we all are going to need though.



Quaife offer something, but they dont rate them to any power or torque levels and if I was dropping big money like what there asking, Id want to feel comfortable in my investment!



As for adjusting ratios, there pretty good as it is, and good factory options are available.



Thats my 2cents anyways!

Thanks for the input.

As I have said pricing is a little up in the air at the moment.

As soon as I know anything I will let you guys know first.

Complete gearset yes. So long as a Motorsport set of ratios where availible - stock no use for racing

Defiantly interested and no a couple others that will be aswell

Gears and synchros are the downfall so if it's well priced this should do well

There is a definite requirement for a stronger gearbox, I'm not sure it stretches to 30+ people? Certainly not on this forum.

Are people aware we are probably talking roughly 2k for an unassembled kit here?

Which isn't much different to a quaife kit in terms of price

And h drive already make a kit that would fit in a Yaris box that would fit on a starlet. But again couple of k for parts alone

No chance we are getting 30 folk to spend 2k on a gearset.

Cusco also have an updated gearset roughly. 1500 in parts anyone 'could' order in in theory - but who has

Yes you could swap to a celica/t sport corrolla 6speed box and then there is three or Four Companies that offered direct fit uprated 3rd/4th gears

Seems interesting but would need more info on the product, i.e. cost, durability, maintenance and warranty. Depending on price I think I would be willing to spend up to 1.2k on something decent if anything comes out of this.

Great to see the interest that we have had so far.


Im going to let this stew a while longer before pestering MFactory any more.


The next step will be to look at what product options they will be able to put foward and the price point.


From there it will be deposits to secure orders.

Be interesting to see what happens here. As far as I've seen there's no common tried and tested solution to the weak gbox/3rd gear problem yet

i think you will have some very decent interest. but all will depend on the price. so best try work out some pricing first. :thumbsup:

Would like to see what power figures it's capable of handling .would definitely be interested if the pricing doesn't make a whole through the ceiling.

If M-Factory did a replacement synchro set, i think that'd be very much appreciated, as IIRC they are now discontinued by Toyota. The gearboxes are now all getting to the stage where we are seeing more and more synchros giving up the ghost.
