    6 speed F23?

    Hello Fellas, is it just me or with the F23 box if you're doing 70ish on the motorway does your engine just push 10 pound notes out the back or what? I've got the Z22SE on a 2001 plate, is there an F23 6 speed that i can easily swap mine out for before fuel tax forces me onto a push bike?

    You should be able to fit the F40 CR 6-Speed from the Vectra C 2.2 direct petrol. As I understand it, there are a few gearbox mount issues to solve but nothing major.

    Your right they have, but not to the 2.2, the starter motor is on the wrong side to make the M32 fit correctly.

    It's just you IMO - at a steady 70 (cruise control on) I'm getting around 36-40mpg for all my lovely 175 bhp

    if some one want's a 2,2 M32 let me know i have a Friend with one of them gearboxes
