f16 out of the question so...

i have an f10 WR but dont think it will last to long i'm runing around 120-125 BHP and higher torque than a standard c16xe.

and regards the f13cr... if the 3,4, 5 gears are the same as the f15 theres not much point.....

think i'll will just keep the revs up... it was fine the other night doing 115 at about 5500RPM but it was very loud!

An F16 will fit, but too much hassle, it's a big block gearbox, so would need new shafts hubs etc.. far too much effort.
The F13CR has a longer 1st and 2nd but 3,4and5 are the same, so it's better for overall sprints with higher power'd beasties as you can't get traction too well in 1st and 2nd anyways.
You could put in a F10 or a F13WR but will make the car really slow.

will an f16 fit on a c16xe?

i just find the f15 CR on it at the moment lets it down on the motorway...

idealy i'd like a wider 4th and 5th gear...

granted the CR box is great for qauter mile runs but i dont use the car for that.....

i thought they were exactly the same just the f15 has a longer final drive and lets it top out at a higher speed

most people are under the impression the f13cr came on the 1.4 16v and the f16cr came on 1.6/GSi's but some 1.4 16v's came with f15's

anyone know the gear sizes in these 2 gearboxes?

and... how durable are F13's?
