Dead Gearbox

Somehow i managed to kill my 3rd gear, can get it into 3rd gear but as soon as any power is applied it jumps back out of the gear.
Now if i were to use a different gearbox to increase performance, what gearbox would i be able to use if any?

I don't think a different gearbox will do much for performance. One from a 1.8/2.0 will have different ratios (from memory), and give you a higher top speed per gear, but it will take longer to get there.

They might be a bit stronger as well...but that's a guess!
