I am not a great technician, but at the moment I have fitted to my TVR:
TVR Cerbera belhousing
Flywheel made to fit on the ls2
TVr Cerbera clutch
Tremec T5 gearbox
Supppose I want to change to:
Belhouse that fits directly on the engine and is also made for the T5
Is this what I need to buy?
The belhousing for the ls2 engine and t5 gearbox
GM clutch and slavecilinder
Change the inputshaft on the gearbox
The gearbox is practically new and it is the strenghtened version from CTS Quaife.
Not quite sure what you're trying to achieve, or where you're at really.
Firstly, the starter motor bolts to the engine...so that shouldn't change.
You do know that the LS bellhousing is pretty big ? I'm assuming your TVR bellhousing is much smaller. So do you have room ?
Likewise for the diameter of the GM clutch. The BH is big to accommodate this.
Slave cylinder you're on your own. The GM part for the LS engine is intended to bolt onto the T56 gearbox and is a concentric slave. This will not in any way go onto your T5.
Sounds like a lot of work swapping input shafts, when you could just buy a friction disc to suit ?
Back to the bellhousing. GM never made one to fit an LS engine for a T5 gearbox. So it will be an aftermarket part...so different brands could vary.
The older LT1 may have come with a T5 at some stage, and most of the BH holes will light up with an LS, so perhaps that may be an option.
Although again if you're using a UK T5, I think there are some clocking differences with a US T5. UK is clocked slightly towards the driver...and likewise for the US version. Opposite sides. Not a big thing though. Gearstick may just sit off slightly.
I think the bolt patterns for them are the same though...but not sure.
You're delving into a bit of a grey area.
