Vauxhall V6 X25/X30/X32 to RX8 gearbox adapter
Vauxhall V6 X25/30/32 to RX8 gearbox adapter
This adapter plate was designed to bolt a Vauxhall V6 X25/30/32 engine to an rx8 gearbox using as many of the standard vauhall parts as possible. It utilizes the DE engines original flywheel (flat faced flywheel for the XE) and clutch pressure plate along with a ford 23 spline clutch friction plate. You MIGHT need to machine 15mm off the bellhousings mating face and re machine the 2 dowel holes in the bellhousing face. This ensures the input shaft locates fully in the crank and in the clutch friction plate. DOUBLE CHECK THE INPUT SHAFT LOCATION BEFORE MACHINING THE BELLHOUSING. you can use a ford pinto/type 9 spigot besring in the crank to support the input shaft.
In most cases it is possible to use the rx8 clutch arm slave cylinder and release bearing with very little work, but In some cases the clutch arm pivot point height might need adjusting to suit. We recomend mocking this up out of the car. The bolt pitch tapped in the adapter plate is M10x1.5mm
Tested in motorsport to ensure we offer the most reliable adapter plate on the market.
