QBE2Z is Quaife’s heavy duty, H-pattern, synchromesh Ford Rocket (Type E) gearbox, suitable for classic Ford models including the Capri, Cortina, Mk1/2 Escort and Sierra.

A Quaife mainshaft and alloy top cover are standard fitment, while an alloy maincase, steel baulk rings, a heavy duty operating block and short tailcase are cost options.
Rated to a maximum of 250bhp, the QBE2Z features power loss minimising straight-cut, close-ratio gears.
