Hello,

Does anyone know if there are different variants of the M32 gearbox? So far I found out its fitted to:

Astra VXR
Corsa VXR
Astra 2.2
Vectra Dervs


Surely there must be a different variant because of the Corsa VXR having a 1.6 engine?

Astra 2.2? The G had an F23, and I didn't think there was a 2.2 H?

This probably isn't what you want to hear Will...

"m32 gearbox is not a simple fit as driveshafts are different , you would have to change the shafts, you also have to change all engine mounts to do it properly and the gearlever also has to be changed, clutch is different too"

Also, from what I've found, the top of the range Vectra diesels (3.0 CDTi for example) had the F40 6 speed, which won't fit a Z/CLET at all.

It seems it was also fitted to the 2.2 Direct Injection petrol in the Vectra C.

The M32 has only been used in VXRs and the 2.8 V6 Vectra Elite so far.

Not sure about different types of gearbox though, can't find any info about it.

It's a Getrag 'box though, so there might be some info on their site?

well I know that the corsa VXR box will fit onto a smallblock 1600 engine and the z18xe smallblock. however I dont think the astra VXR box will so there may be differences in the mounting face between the astra and corsa VXR box.

also the spline on the shaft in the box may be different
