I will bet money that Maranoux is the foremost gearbox expert on this forum. Ive never seen anything like it. I take him a busted vr6 box and a tdi box. 3 hours later I leave with a hybrid tdi vr6 box. He builds them blind folded in his sleep while simultaneously satisfying two pairs of Siamese twins.

The rear gearbox upgrade mount is R800.00 and the other 3 polyurethane bushes add up to about R300.00

Send a PM to Throttles here on the forum. He is a gearbox genius. I am not certain but I think he is running an 020 gearbox with modified internals and a locked diff in his methanol fed 8v N/A monster drag car.

Rinus did drags with his 020 running +450whp and full slicks, granted it had a LSD.

Depends a lot how you use it. Just saying.

Yip, got this setup in my GT, engine movement is minimal. I will have a look if I've got a video of my car on the Dyno where you can see the engine...

I been using all poly from Wikus. Only have good praises about that rear mount.

I used to eat up the old mounts and in turn, it used to crack my turbo manifold.

Thanks Viper, just goes to show what advice and help you get from all the ous on the forum.

Rather get the solid poly cambelt side mount - Wikus will have it too, instead of those silly inserts.

Get your pressure plate to Norbrake, ask Gavin to double spring and double strap it for you.

Thanks everyone - That gives me a lot more confidence as the diff bolts have been fitted.

Poy called yesterday afternoon to let me know i can pick up my box from Sarel's shop. :hug:

Now to get a Dyno booking to jet for race fuel :evil: cant wait to have her back on the road again! :driving:

I've also decided to fit Wikus's poly rear mounting while i'm at it. (already have the front poly mount installed and the side mounts i have press-in inserts waiting to go in)

Did 320 on my 020 with bolt on kit but had nice strong clutch to help holding the power

020 boxes are good to 200Hp, seen some stock ones hold 250 but with bolted diffs. As long as you have a little mechanical sympathy with them you'll be fine, abuse any box and it'll break - or leave you
