    gear box help

    would a f18 gear box from a 2.0 vectra fit a mk4 astra 1.6 16v
    and what would the ratios be on a f18 and what difference would there be between a f17 and a f18.
    Thanks

    so if its a F18CR the ratio should be the same

    what box is this, acording to the seller it will fit a vectra, if he is right then the other box I found will be ideal, with out sounding thick a getrag box, is this just the gearbox manufacturer

    I know matey I wanted to use a f18 as I thought it would be stronger than the f17

    The vectra box wont fit as it is basically the same box as the f17 but the top 3 mounts are different.
