    Can't see the part number for the 2.8 engine on ecat.
    I'm guessing there are all different types (?)

    Yup it’s the final drive ratio’s. Can only assume it’s lower for higher speed so if you get one with a higher ratio your top speed will be lower but it should accelerate quicker

    PM me your reg and I'll see if your exact gearbox is recorded by Vauxhall in EPC. It might not be, but it's worth a try.

    Your chassis number tells me that you have the F40 MU9 gearbox, which a quick google says the ratios are:

    1st : 3.92
    2nd : 2.04
    3rd : 1.37
    4th : 1.05
    5th : .85
    6th : .71
    Final drive : 3.762

    EPC also gives the POC or RPO code of MM3, but only gives a description of this code as "used with manual transmission". Google gives no info on what that code relates to, it could be as simple as meaning the car has a particular gearlever, or it could be something more important to choosing a replacement gearbox.
