    Default Gearbox question ?

    Is it ok to replace a 1.8 gearbox F17 W394 ratio with a F17 C374 ratio ?
    I know this is a 'close' ratio version but will it still be ok with original linkages etc ?
    cheers gurus

    Should be
    Presumably this was the difference in the Vectra B between the standard 2.0 and the SRI 2.0, the close ratio gearbox gave excellent mid-speed acceleration
    However, this did result in a loss of fuel economy

    Just noticed that in the files I have
    In the facelift Vectra B they dropped that and both had the same gearbox

    Equally, I see the difference in the performance between the 1.8 standard and SRI, on the 30-50mph time, the same as it was on the Vectra B
