NEW Ring & Pinion Ratios for 3 speed Automatics

Cost $1295

German Transaxle is proud to finally have ring and pinion options for the 3 speed (090) transaxles. For years now we have only used the factory OE ring and pinions for our builds, due to the poor quality of design and construction that the aftermarket was suppling. We have spent the last several months building and dyno testing these new ring and pinions. With 4 total options for gearing we can fine tune these automatics to your vehicle specs. These new gear sets come in 3.27, 3.72, 4.09(stock), and 4.45. Our in house dyno testing has shown that these gears run from 12 to 20 degrees cooler, run at the same decibal level as the OE but have much less whine, this is due in large part to the super finishing or REM polishing on them. RPM drop from the 4.09 to 3.72 is on average 300 to 500 RPM's.  For more info please call 

To help keep the the stock Vanagons going we due offer $100.00 back on our outright sales. If your ring & pinion is good, put your old ring and pinion back in the box and slap the prepaid return sticker on it and send it to us. A GOOD ring and pinion will be decided by our tech once we receive it.
