    sorry to bump this again but havent got any further with it yet, have been looking at the gearbox which is fitted to the petrol turbo mk4s which seems to be the f23 box, this would seem like the one to go for as it must have the correct ratios for achieving a higher speed as i no there capable of over 140mph in standard form but i dont want to buy one without knowing if itl fit as there not exactly cheap and i dont want to be stuck with my van off the road, also while browsing gear boxes on ebay there was an f23 gear box listed for a 2.0 dti and a 2.2 petrol so are these the same boxes but with different ratios?? confused...... you bet, any help greatly recieved
