    Default 2.2 Sri Gearbox

    Ive come from an MG ZS with a very tight, notchy gear box to my Sri and am struggling to get used to the gearbox muxh as I like so much else about the car... Im finding 1st to 2nd particularly difficult at times.

    Would one of these help?

    Ive had quickshifts in the past and always found they enhance the drive for me but these were all older models.

    What gearbox will be on mine? An F23?

    Are there any others solutions?

    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    A mixture of the two to be honest... It feels very notchy but also its quite a long throw from one gear into the next after driving the cars I have previously...

    There's plenty tried it on the 2.2 Astra/Vec b with the F23 but I cant remember on being fitted to the Vec C. There's a different type available, which is just the linkage. I think LMF sell them.

    Sorry mate, as said, its more of an astra thing. You could try asking on the 2.2 forum.
