Morning members.

Have a quick question, how much more different compared to ratios is the 5 speed box from the Seat 1.9tdi and the polo 1.9tdi. ?

Not sure we ever got a Seat Ibiza 1.9TDI with a 5sp gearbox...

Ibiza FR was 96kw 6sp
Ibiza Cupra was 118kw 6sp
'04 Polo TDI 1661.9 km on 58.05l

Reason why im asking is that my current gearbox on my Polo decided to give in, so i managed to get Seat gearbox 5sp.

so just want to know if there will be any differences on the box it self. I haven't driven the car as yet with the new box, but from what my mech told me is that the box feels a bit different.

unless you have the gearbox code or has opened it it is hard to say if they have different ratios. Feel different can mean a gazillion things and is subject to human emotion.

You probably got a 5 speed box from the Ibiza Cupra 1.8t 20v.
If you had a 5 speed tdi box then this 5 speed petrol box ratios will be a lot shorter.
Current:
Seat Leon Cupra


Ex:
Seat Ibiza Cupra 1.9 TDi
VW Mk4 GTI 2L 20V
Smart Car FourTwo (V-Tec Powered)
Golf Mk1 GT 2L 8V
Golf Mk3 VR6
