What do the letters mean?

What is the difference between the different letters / designations HGD / JGA / HGU / JGG?

  • HGD / JGA
    These gearboxes have a "regular" input shaft located in a support bearing in the flywheel.
  • HGU
    These gearboxes have a hole in the input shaft so an adapter is required between the support bearing and the input shaft. An adapter is used so that the input shaft of the gearbox will be supported / fit in the support bearing in the flywheel.
  • HGA
    These gearboxes have the same input shaft as the HGD but with a different bell housing (Old BMW M50 style)
  • JGG
    This gearbox comes from the BMW 123d.
