QKE8J is a 5-speed sequential gearkit for the EP3 and FN2 versions of the Honda Civic Type R as well as the DC5 Intregra. Ideally suited to circuit racing, drag racing and rally use it’s designed as a direct replacement for the standard six-speed H-pattern Honda transmission.
QKE8J features a replacement Quaife outer gearbox case incorporating an additional support bearing between 4th and 5th gear. A compact, drum style sequential gearchange mechanism and an open face dog design ensure an ultra rapid, positive gear sequential shift.
QKE8J re-uses the original EP3/FN2/DC5 bellhousing half of the transmission casing, enabling the retention of the Honda clutch, differential, driveshafts and mounting points. Wide straight cut (spur) close-ratio gears minimise transmission losses and offer a choice of rally, race or drag race gearing.
There is also the choice of a helical set for road and track day applications.
Key technical features of the QKE8J five-speed Acura / Honda K-series EP3/FN2/DC5 sequential gear kit include:
- Strengthened Outer Casing And Five Wider Gears
- Ultra Fast Sequential Gearshift With Straight Cut or Helical Close-Ratio Gears
- Retains Stock EP3/FN2/DC5 Clutch, Diff, Driveshafts And Mounts
- Optional LED Digital Gear Position Indicator Available
PLEASE NOTE: The Quaife QKE8J package includes the new transmission housing, gear lever and cable
