Re: Sei/Punto 5 speed gear boxes

I think puntos have a longer 5th gear compared to a sei

Re: Sei/Punto 5 speed gear boxes

Apple, considering it's the physical dimensions of the box I'm interested in that doesn't help much

Re: Sei/Punto 5 speed gear boxes

Ahh right, i thought you was referring to a potential perfromance upgrade, in which case it probably wouldnt be a major benefit, if any at all.

In that case no idea, what about the punto lot? what have they said?

Re: Sei/Punto 5 speed gear boxes

Well the idea is do the Novitec 6 speed conversion, then lob the punto box into the Sei. However if the punto boxes are bigger I might as well just change the FD on a 55 6 Speed...

John, he doesn't once question the benefits, god most of your posts latlely just look like the need to post!

I'm sure they are practically the same, the 6 speed Punto box sticks out a bit further though.

Re: Sei/Punto 5 speed gear boxes

I have a 1.1 punto box in my 75 1.2 and its the same. I had to do my gearbox the other day and they were exactly the same.

Ergo, if the sei 1.1 and the punto one have the same box...

That if is the problem & is what I want to know . I know you can mount them easily enough but this is about case size .
