The gearbox is one of the known problem areas.

You can be lucky and never have a problem.

Or you can be one of the significant number who do.
 
Sorry how much you reckon it would be to refurb a gearbox?? 150 quid?

Im sure i heard mike, rentech or someone like that say it would be more like 450/500 quid

not sure but im just intrested also
 
Thats what i thought, im also pretty sure they cost around that much to get second hand, gearbox problems are never going to be that cheap to sort out mate. better get a quote of someone who knows

Yozzasport do a 6 speed conversion into the stock 172/182 gearbox but the normal 6 speedo from Meggys etc won't fit. You need the bottom end of the 2.0 engine as well but its not a bad idea to upgrade to this as its stronger for turbo work than the 172 bottom end.

Matt Black had one Mk1 phase 1 172 gearbox I got the impresion it was a cancelled order so not a common price but he has second hand boxes and can get new boxes cheap.

I paid £250 for one out of a scrapper after I blew the crown wheel out of both sides of it - 16k on clock..... was a tw*t to fit too.... ok now - for the time being :)

Matt can get hold of new boxes but since he works at a breakers yard he has more used ones from broken cars.
His user name is Matt Black on here but ring him instead as he gets to many Pm's
01254 386661 is his number and ask for Matt as there a few people who work there.
