Transmission arrived!

Thanks to Shaun (aka Phineas Q Butterfat) on the Pulsar Forums, I now have a used manual 5 speed N13 gearbox. I swapped a 6-pack of Coronas for it.

I will be using this to design my Adapter Plate. Gav at KiwiEV has a neat little diagram to show how the pieces fit together:

Shaun advised against putting it in the car since it's been behind a turbo and is pretty tired. I'm not sure the high torque of my electric motor won't to damage, so it's best not to risk it.

As you can see, there's a little rust on it, but nothing a soak in WD40 and some TLC won't fix.
