    M32 To Z20LET

    How easy is this
    i might be able to get my hands on the gearbox, could a competent mechanic do the job or would i be better taking it to a vauxhall place

    whats the deal with the driveshafts too
    and does it use the same mounting points
    What is cross posting? Is it when you get angry and post it on a forum?

    yup can get all that
    how long would the car be off the road you think

    is it an easy enough job and what are the benefits
    consumption better in 6th etc

    heard somewhere you need the outside of 1 and the inside of the other driveshaft

    what about the gear linkages? are they the same size between box and stick

    I *think* the gearlinkages are the same length, but scotty has a modified short shift on his.

    And as far as 6th, I dont actually think its that much longer than the f23s 5th - well definatley didnt seem it in dads 5door 200ps turbo - but then had the cars at different times.

    The gearlinkage is different and you will need this from the donor car. Mine doesn't have a modified short shift, but the throw on a vxr isn't very long anyway. Iirc the linkage new from vaux is about 250 notes which includes the vxr gearlever.

    6th is a little longer than 5th on an f23 but not a great deal.

    If u want to get the part, u can get it. 266 is normal for f23. I ask that question for this reason.
