126 manual transmission???

I just had a random idea! Is there any manual tranny that would bolt up to the 617 turbo engine? how hard would it be to make a pedal cluster work for this? hmmmmmm dreaming .. . . .. .. .

This could be done. The pedal assembly exists. As turbodiesel said, there were 126 bodied cars with manuals. There also have been 617 turbo engines mated to a manual transmission. This would be a challenge but it could be done.

Good luck,

Well Breakman99 , Click on the the web URL below and this is what you would end up with. I myself have been working on a 240D to 617 Turbo conversion for about two months and I still have a lot to do, plus I am still looking for a 5 speed trans.
