High Strength Collar Gear - 6spd M66 Version
8/19/2023 UPDATE - The group buy is over and there are a few extra in stock.
At typically over $1000 per replacement including labor, and some reportedly needing more than one before they've hit 100k miles, this expensive problem has finally been dealt with. Install this collar gear as a preventative measure and let your drive train worries slip away.
I can not guarantee fitment on a worn transmission output gear or angle gear input gear so don't wait till it fails! However, one of the prototypes was recently installed on a car with a failed OEM collar and he had this to say...
- "...it feels stronger & heavier, tighter fit, correct Volvo gaskets - I'm happy to support this new collar..." See the reviews here.
Ryan's personal log: 80,000+ miles from June 2013-2019. Likely over 3 million combined miles with the over 200 units sold.
