5-Speed Gearbox

One of the services we offer here at E-Type UK is the upgrade of the gearbox of a Jaguar E-Type. We can replace your 4-speed E-Type gearbox with a more desirable and useable 5-speed gearbox.

With more demanding journeys, the early fitted E-type four-speed Mossbox and 4-speed all-synchromesh gearboxes, unfortunately, make driving a classic Jaguar E-type difficult and restrictive. Now that modern technology has advanced, it’s possible to seamlessly marry the beautiful classic E-Type with a 5-speed gearbox. 

Boasting a multitude of benefits from the change, you can expect nothing but the absolute top quality of workmanship and service from the E-Type UK team.

The Benefits 

What does an E-Type gearbox conversion upgrade actually mean for you in terms of performance? 

Succinctly put, this upgrade not only provides the important 5th gear but increases the drivability of your car through the extremely positive gear changes, lowing the revs and reducing stress on your British classic engine. In other words, you’re going to feel the difference, and it’s going to make your drive more enjoyable.

The original gearboxes are very different to modern gearboxes, often requiring a softer touch and commonly feeling less tight, especially in unrestored examples. Our Jaguar E-type 5-speed gearbox conversion eliminates this issue, presenting the driver with a tight and precise-feeling gearbox, without losing any of the classic visual aseathic of your classic E-type. 

Our 5-speed gearbox upgrade is designed to be a direct swap with your factory original 4-speed, not requiring any unnecessary bodywork fabrication. A huge benefit for any Jaguar E-type enthusiast that is concerned about originality and matching numbers - a simple and reservable enhancement to your classic.

This desirable upgrade is a capable replacement for a variety of Jaguar models, including the Jaguar C-Type and XK120, XK140 & XK150 models.

The Procedure

At E-Type UK, our 5-speed gearbox upgrade is highly popular and one of the more frequently fitted upgrades on the Jaguar E-type. Due to this fact, we are highly experienced in enhancing the Jaguar E-type driving performance, providing you with a truly transformed classic.

During the removal, we inspect all associated parts including the clutch, master and slave cylinders, bearings, and engine hoses to ensure your vehicle is returned at the highest possible standard.

Built from cast aerospace-grade aluminium, our 5-speed gearbox uses your existing associated components to retain originality and reduce any unnecessary physical changes to your E-type appearance. It’s engineered with synchromesh on all ratios, helical cut gears and a reinforced aluminium cast casing, it is capable of handling up to 400hp and 350 ft/lb of torque.
