    Whats been done to your gearbox as mine rattles like a bag of spanners with the single mass fitted im looking for a solution to throw money at but it needs to be a good one for the £300 rebuild

    Wrighty - I think ive fixed the lights from misting up, ive used silicone sealent

    Smiff - i have had a full gearbox rebuild costing me just shy of £800 (taking out, rebuilding and reinstalling). It was sent to a gearbox Specialist who had to ground the casing out as there were apparently gouges in the case, use Modified gears, modified syncro mesh and something else modified to strengthen it all.

    Then additionally ive had the single mass flywheel conversion and a Fast Road Clutch installed.

    Ive been informed by the garage i use, to have the gearbox oil changed every 6 months or so to keep the box in perfect condition.
