QKE8J V2 is a 5-speed sequential gear kit for the EP3 and FN2 versions of the Honda Civic Type R as well as the DC5 Integra / RSX. 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 V2 features a replacement Quaife outer gearbox case incorporating additional support bearing between the 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 V2 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 minimize 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 Honda 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
- Quaife ATB for standard driveshafts (QDF9U)
PLEASE NOTE: The Quaife QKE8J package includes the new transmission housing, gear lever, and cable.
*Version 2 Update* We are now supplying the QKE8J Version 2 which has been updated with a revised shift mechanism that incorporates the ability to connect a pneumatic shift system directly to the gearbox from the factory.
