v8 auto v diesel ??


Recommended Posts

Off the top of my head, the core box mechanicals are the same but the bell housing and torque converter are obviously different but easily swapped.

The governor and the kick down cam are also different as is the kick down cable, but again fairly easily swapped.

It's these that will effect the shifting.

As for the valve body, there's a few variations on the valveing but I don't think it ties in with either petrol or diesel.

So, yes worth having as a spare provided you swap some bits over.

That said, I have an ex V8 box behind my 200tdi, no idea what's been swapped internally but it shifts fine.

Also this assumes the v8 box is also a HP22 and not the later 24 in which case there are other differences.
