    Anyone with a X16SZR need a new gearbox?

    Spotted this on E-Bay and thought it may be of interest to members but TBH I've never heard of this model engine, which is why I posted in the general section rather than the for sale section as I would be interested to know which model Astra Mk4 got this particular engine variant.
    For anyone looking for a new gearbox this could be a real bargain

    Never heard of a F13 either but then I've got the 1.8 and I tend to focus on just my own car when it comes to bits.

    Ken, its the early 1.6 8valvers with the 75bhp single point injection engine - designated X16SZR. This is the one Ive got and it does indeed sport the F13 gearbox - I do actually believe the 13 was used in a few others but maybe non UK spec models. Seems a good bargain but I dont need one....then again it hasnt stopped me buyin what i dont need in the past.

    The F13 was also used in the Mk3 as well my 1993 1.4 GLS had an F13 fitted. I ended up dumping it as I could not sell it.
