Is this the NSG 370 six-speed from Getrag..?
Is this transmission "unique" for the JK or is this a stock transmission used for other customers (I understand that the case, bell housing and shifter cover might be different for other applications..) In fact what I like to know is whether this transmission is "unique" for the JK application (which has its own duty cycle..)

I only have 3K miles and so far all is reasonably OK. No way do I want to compare this transmission with the "Corvette" or "Mustang" manual transmission. (Ease of shift, smoothness, whine etc.. )

Indeed the first is a harsh shift, second has a "whine", the synchro's need time to synchro, hence slow shifting is required...(May be this is what Getrag had in mind from a $$$$$ point of view..:innocent:)

I will do some more research on this..(my old profession is coming back..:grinpimp: )
