Trimatic to Turbo 350

G'day,
I have a HZ with a red 308 and Trimatic transmission, but I have been told the Turbo 350 is better. Is it possible to replace the Trimatic with a Turbo 350 transmission, and what makes the Turbo 350 a better transmission?

Not really.
In stock form the T350 is generally a little stronger, but the trimatic is still a good option, and can be beefed up and tricked out to your hearts content.
Both boxes are 3 speed, and gear ratio's are pretty similar.

Save your money. Don't do a conversion. Would be quite complex anyway as the TH350 uses a different crossmember, tailshaft and boltpattern.

If you want a tough box with/without highstall, get the trimatic refurbed.
If you want a box with overdrive, consider a TH700 conversion.

JD Camira. Old, Beatup and Tinny. But from its 1.8L EI motor i got 6.2L/100km! (45.5mpg)

Never Drive A Car Younger Than Yourself!

I replaced the Trimatic in my HZ in 2004, I didn't realise how bad the old one was until I drove the car with the new one in it. Now thanks to some good advice, I will save my money and leave the transmission alone :)
