Alright lads, advice needed. iv got a corsa gsi . just had engine rebuild done and cylinder head sorted hard, new fast road cams and all that, new full stainless exhaust system. orignial gearbox is on its way out so a new one will be needed soon. i was wondering if there is a better gearbox i can bang on. the standard gsi one has quite a long gear change and you notice it more with all my mods, shorter gear change needed i guess. what should i do? any help appreciated

Why would an F16 be better? If it fitted, which it wont as its big block....

The the ratio's in the F15 seem fine to me, if I were you I'd fit another one.

How do you know its on the way out?

it crunches a hell of a lot now and just had the linkage done. mechanic says its pretty worn out. its just generally feels pretty rough in general. i find the gear changes dont help my accelaration at all really.

yeah the F15 box is pretty good IMO. On change-up, it managed to keep the engine right in the power band. The ratios are good for the engine, regardless of modifications. You should try the F10 gearbox, now that has a LONG throw especially with the 1.2 8v engine
