  • Diesel 6th

    Had the diesel 6th fitted when I had my bearings done and what a difference !
    Used to be 3k was 80mph
    Now 3k is 98 mph
    Better mpg, higher top speed, supposed more people don't do it !
    The other bonus was the exhaust was a lot quieter aswell, recommend it !

        Suppose that I have to down change to 5th if I drop to 70, don't really see it as an issue tho ! Warren said he's never done an Astra which after having it done i can't believe no one has bothered it's a mental difference

            What do u mean by that mate ?
            I've not taken it over 100 scince fitting new gear but my rev limiter isn't until 7.6k and I could go off the clock before this lol I reckon top speed around 190 lol

              Did u think as it was a diesel gear it limited u to 5k ? Doesn't work like that mate, the Rev limiter for the Diesel engine limits gear to 5k not the gearing or box itself.
              There are no negatives to this conversion to be clear.

                Did you buy it yourself or get the people who did your box to get it

                Nice mod I must admit

                      This is something I've been interested in for the long motorway trips. What sort of price if you don't mind me asking?

                        This is very interesting. Sadly my gearbox has not long since been refurb end so I'd like to think it will be a while before it goes again.

                        If it does go again though I would certainly be interested in having this done as 90% of my mileage is motorway driving

                          Any excuse to get a LSD fitted. Convince yourself that you'll be saving money.

                            Haha oh I've already got the diff so I wish the previous owner had known about the 6th gear mod and had it some at the same time, but one of those things!
