    Default Vectra GSI 2003

    Anybody know if you can and how difficult it is to replace a 5speed box with a 6speed box. Is there much difference if you can.

    any recommendations on places that do remapping.

    Sure your box is a F35 and 6 speeds are F45 or something and i'm sure there not interchangeable,but i could be wrong

    IIRC it was also decided that the ratios of 6th are pretty much the same as 5th on the 5 speed box so there was not a lot of gain.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Your absolutely right, 5th is the same ratio as 6th on the 6 Speed. However, the F40 close ratio box from the 2.0T should fit to the 3.2 block.

    The advantage you will get there is the lower final drive, which will give you a little more acceleration.

    I am sure the 3.2 engine is mated up to the F40 6-Speed in American applications for their GM FWD cars.

    You would not want a petrol close ratio box for a diesel. However, there is a 6-Speed box that fits the 2.2 DTi, I am sure it's the F40 from the 1.9.

    In 2003/2004, Saab offered a 6-Speed box on the options list for £200 on the 9-3 2.2 Tid (2.2DTi). It may be worth looking into which box Saab offered, but I am 99% sure it is the 1.9 F40.
