Because, if its a closer ratio in the mk.2 they might (hopefully) be fitting that to my car on monday instead of the mk.1 gearbox.....? what are the ratio differences? or is the final drive slightly diff(!)erent.
I think its more than the final drive. Each gear in the Mk2 box is a lot shorter than the gears in the Mk1. 4th in the Mk2 should only reach 109Mph max.
5th in the Mk2 was good for 140Mph max. Now the Mk1 box can do 118Mph Max in 4th , 157Mph max in 5th lol. I worked all these from Capts figures and factory mk1 figures from my own stuff when I got the car.
