Concerning the LAYCOCK TYPE-J OD:

Is the drop in RPM, using the Laycock Type J OD unit less than, equal to, or greater than switching to a 5-Speed tranny?

Can any marque Type J be used? Looking on e-bay, there are plenty of Volvo type -J  always up for sale.

Looking at the procedure to put a Volvo type-J on a TR6, it appears that the shade tree machanic or the faint of heart might be out of their league. Has any club member/board poster done this upgrade, either by themselves or professionally? The only person I  know of that has done this was a BRIT than came over for one of the Jensen East meets.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge.
