Shift Fork Failure in the 6 Speed 3000GT VR4 / Dodge Stealth AWDChris Behnken
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so we just started with a picture of what can happen when you shift a 6 Speed 3000GT VR4 or AWD Dodge Stealth like you really mean it…
That aluminum piece that is fractured on the edge is the 1st and 2nd gear shift fork. Hard shifting will break the fragile stock cast forks. If you are lucky you will “only” lose 1st and 2nd gear, and if not you may jam the trans in 2 gears at once or have large pieces of aluminum bind up your gears and cause a lot of damage.
Fortunately there is a solution…

DescriptionSupercar Engineering billet CNC machined transmission shift forks for the Stealth/3000GT Getrag transmission. These forks are made from the strongest available 7075-T6 aluminum, which is at least twice stronger than the typical cast aluminum used in the stock forks. A broken shift fork can lead to having two gears engaged at the same time, which results in a catastrophic failure of the transmission. Never let your shift forks fail! The 1/2 fork is especially prone to breakage with any type of hard shifting and is highly recommended on any transmission build.Hard-anodized for additional strength and wear resistance.These forks are for the 94+ 6-speed AWD Getrag transmission only. There are two forks available – for gears 1-2 and for gears 3-4. You can buy either one, or both.
