Didn't you change the gear ratios a while back? Bummer for you either way.

It had a new final drive and pinion put in it. I've not taken it apart yet to see what's broken.

At first I thought it had thrown a rod through the block but when there was no smell of oil or smoke I was slightly puzzled. I don't think this will be that cheap to fix. I just hope the new CWP is ok because they are difficult to find as you know!

It was previously a perfectly good low mileage gearbox. The ones from salvage yards are so good. Will check out the ratios on gti 180 boxes to see what they are like with this 4.76 FD in it.

Must be that invisible turbo that is attached! I doubt I've gone over the 188lb ft torque limit of the BE4 gearbox.
