    Default M32 gearbox to an f40?

    I know some of the 8v 1.9 engines had these so it can't be impossible, but how much work would there been in swapping my m 32 for an f40? New driveshafts and box? Or would there be more needed?

    Why would you want to swap it? Just had my m32 rebuilt with new bearings(common fault) and is so smooth and quiet now.

    True F40 box is good, but to do the conversion would cost more than a bearing upgrade on m32 i think, F40 is bigger box with different linkages/driveshafts etc i think.
    F40 can handle more power though if he's remapped engine.

    Only reason is I've got a crack in my sump plug drain casing which is leaking slightly (5 or so drops on to the floor over a couple of days) I've found out I can just replace that part but unsure how hard it'd be"/
