Re: GEARBOX.what fits what

Any of the manual 16v TS gearboxes will fit but the FD ratios are different.

The 2.0TS/JTS & 1.8TS are the same though

1.6 uses the same 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th ratios as the 2.0JTS but with a different FD ratio.

So you want a gearbox from a 2.0TS, 2.0JTS or 1.8TS.

The 2.0JTS actually uses the same 1st gear ratio as the Selespeed and 1.6TS. So 1st is easier for moving off, but with a larger gap to 2nd.
