    Default Bought a 6 speed gearbox - will it fit?

    Need new gearbox for my 56 plate 2.2 direct SRi

    Assuming it was an F40 and that all F40's were the same, i got one from a 1.9 diesel.

    Garage just called to tell me it wont fit - should it or shouldn't it?

    Numbers off my old box is;
    FGP55192042 (also on diff; FGP55194293)

    Number from the diesel box is;
    F40, GM55350375


    Cheers, Ant.

    While they will both be F40's the bellhousing will be different and the gear ratios will all be wrong...

    m8, the gear ratios will be wide, you will find acceleration especially in higher gears quite poor.

    the starter on the 2.2 is on the front and the 1.9 is at the rear so the bellhousings are different

    If your car allready has a 6 speed, then it will be an m32 box, but be carefull as there are quite a few types of m32 box, but only one from a 2.2 direct will fit, dont get one from a 1.9 diesel, or astra, corsa vxr, another tip for you, look as much as you want but you wont find m32 stamped on your box......

    Yes it should be F23.. thats the 5 speed one.. (also think the 6 speed is that.. but if you are converting from 5 to 6. you will also need new gear leaver)

    I know there is a webpage with all the different types.. but cant find it at the moment.
