New Transmissions for Fiat 124 and Fiat 2000 series cars.

Our transmission has the best 5th gear ratio available (at .78:1) and NO CORE charge. Why would anyone charge a core fee for a new part?! Our transmission comes ready to install. No additional bending or changing required. Simply take it out of the box and install it into your car!

This unit also includes

– Vinyl Shift Boot

– Shift Knob

– Transmission Mount

– Reverse Light Switch

– Speed-O Drive Gear

For decades, Fiat licensed the production of 124-based vehicles to companies around the world.

Among those companies was Lada. A number of components were strengthened to withstand variable road conditions. Of the components best enhanced was the transmission, which is still in production today, on modern machinery to exacting modern standards.

Among other applications, this same transmission is installed in the Niva, an SUV which is world-renowned for its reliability and toughness (see YouTube for its domination in head-to-head trials against Land Rovers and Jeeps).

The gear ratios are virtually the same as the factory 124 transmission, except for the 5th gear ratio, which is actually better than the Fiat 5th. The ratio is .78:1 vs the Fiat .87:1, which means lower RPM on the freeway. The shift pattern is the same. A subjective evaluation reports that the shifting is slightly crisper and the slightly lower shifter placement is comfortable.

As with many manual transmissions, there is no reverse lockout.

    First off I am a tech. This took me about 6 1/2 hours to installed and then modify stuff so it would fit. So the trans went right in but the trans mount would not line up. "(NOTE: This is NOT true to most year models) So I had to move to crossmember forward 1 inch. You need to flatten out the flange on the crossmember and flip it around. Then grind out the holes. you then need to loosen the motor mounts and shift the back of the trans over about 1 1/2 inches so the drive shaft center support bearing will clear the tunnel." Then remove the big seal at the output shaft cut 1/2 inch off of the center bushing so the driveline will go all the way on. Do not replace the back up switch. It is too long and locks up the shifter in reverse. the shifter handle is too short. So I made a shaft about 6 inches long to get it to the right height. The trans makes a clicking noise at first then goes away after driving about 5 miles. It grinds into gears and is hard to shift for the first 15 miles. The next day I put over 100 miles on it and it worked great. This is a really good up grade. You can’t beat the price. I hope this info helps. I would buy again. It is that good.

Q & A

Is this transmission a direct bolt on swap for the old one? Are there any modifications that need to be made? does the shifter come up in the same location? I know some new or alternate transmissions call for modification of the shifter stick and or modifications to the transmission tunnel. Thank You Johan Beumer asked on March 27, 2024


We were the first to develop use of this transmission and in fact we use the best one available with the best 5th gear ratio.

Being the first and the best at such development we make ours to fit! Unlike others, ours is a bolt in ready to use transmission. The shifter comes out the factory Fiat location and no modifications are needed to the tunnel or any other area. As the description states "simply take it out of the box and install it into your car".

The physical difference you'll note once installed is the lack of the chrome shifter from the factory car. This does mean the shifter is lower and has a shorter throw. The shift boot should fit right beneath the shift knob completely making the shift lever hidden.

For any further question please don't hesitate to ask or call.
