No improvements/differences over the lesser models?
What's a good price for a good used E55 box?
Would sir like to try this..........
Mercedes E55 AMG Gearbox E55 AMG Kompressor SPEEDSHIFT GEARBOX 722.643 | eBay
Well the first one's for a supercharged W211 E55, and the second one's for a facelift W210 model with tiptronic shift which is near enough (again, I assume the same as pre-facelift) so I see what you're saying. Thanks!
5 speed auto boxes fitted to AMG cars are different to standard spec boxes they are built and designed to take far more abuse. Thats why the really high spec cars like the SLR still run the 5 speed and have not moved to 7 speed.
The Tip Tronic box is different and will not be a straight swap.
Your car could possibly be converted to Tip but it is by no means straight forward, and there is a chance your ECU will not be able to be recoded to make it work.
I would stick with a normal 5 speed.
The box fitted in the E55 is just a basic 722.6, 5 speed box (5G-Tronic) that was standard fitment on MB cars from around 97-98, though the box has had many modifications (listed in WIS) and has evolved through its life, to replace the gearbox on your car like for like you really need to know the six digits of the box eg. 722.6??,
The only difference I,m aware of with AMG vehicles was they had different TCU software than the standard models.
