Are you ready to take your E-Type experience to the next level? Look no further than the 5-speed gearbox upgrade offered by E-Type UK. Discover how this simple modification can transform your driving experience, enhancing performance, reliability, and overall enjoyment behind the wheel.


If you own an E-Type and are contemplating upgrading to a 5-speed gearbox, there are several compelling reasons to take the plunge. Firstly and most importantly, the upgrade improves the overall drivability and performance of your E-Type, thanks to the smoother and more precise gear changes. The extra gear offers a wider range of gear ratios, leading to better acceleration and top-end speed. This additional gear also improves fuel efficiency by allowing the engine to operate at lower RPMs during motorway driving. The wider gear ratios offered by the 5-speed gearbox provide better flexibility in various driving situations, optimising the engine's RPM range, with powerful acceleration on country lanes and reduced engine strain on motorways.

The upgrade also enhances reliability, as the improved design and construction of the modern 5-speed gearbox features superior materials over a period box, the result is increased durability and reduced wear and tear. Lastly, the upgrade adds a touch of modernity to your classic car without compromising its classic charm.


Maintaining the classic look of your E-Type with a 5-speed upgrade is entirely possible. We specialise in preserving the original design and feel of the car during the modification process. The upgrade seamlessly integrates a 5-speed gearbox that complements the timeless appeal of the E-Type, requiring no bodywork, fabrication or trim work for installation. The classic styling and charm remain intact while enhancing the driving experience with improved performance and reliability.

Our expertise ensures that the upgrade respects the heritage of the car, therefore, when replacing your E-type with a more desirable transmission, your original gearbox will be retained and returned, thus ensuring your car remains a matching numbers example.


While the addition of a 5-speed gearbox to your E-Type does not require any special maintenance per se, it is always recommended to follow regular maintenance practices to keep your vehicle running smoothly. Routine maintenance, such as checking fluid levels, inspecting the transmission for leaks, and ensuring proper lubrication, should be carried out as per the manufacturer's guidelines. It's also crucial to have the gearbox serviced by a qualified professional who is familiar with the specific needs of the 5-speed upgrade, like our E-Type UK team. Inspection of any E-type gearbox should be considered during an annual service. By maintaining your E-Type and its gearbox in good condition, you can enjoy an enhanced driving experience for years to come.
