Offered for sale is a Lotus Elan & Elan +2 Getrag gearbox 5 speed upgrade conversion/adaptor kit. This kit makes it possible to install a BMW Getrag 5 speed 262 overdrive gearbox or. To a Lotus Elan +2 with a standard Lotus/Ford Twincam engine. Key Points to note. The bellhousing is a standard Ford casting. You MUST source a BMW gearbox with a removable bellhousing. The 262 (maybe 265 as well) was supplied to many vehicles, and might have an integrated bellhousing, which is of no use with this application. Some mounts will be required for the gearbox – there are good mounting lugs on the 262/265 boxes. Your propshaft will need to be modified from the standard BMW’doughnut’ flexible coupling. Regarding the propshaft, the BMW rubber donut type is there to act as a cushion to take some of the harshness out of the transmission and dampen harmonics, which will need to be replaced with a U/J.
