Gary My one tranny is a 3M with a 0.73 fifth,; BUT the one on my other car is unknown. Unlike the 3M there is no code on the top of the bellhousing! Funnily enough there is a deliberately painted green patch just above where the code should be. The good news is that I know by rotating a wheel whilst in 5th that this box is 'better' than my current one and probably a 0.68... Or about 7% lower revs. When I do my engine swap I wonder if I'll get a 7% increase in economy? Maybe as the revs will be moving into the peek efficiency region I'll get 10% improvement in econ. (8OD) 66mpg imp or 55mpg US [on a run] Of course this engine has been stood in its car for 3 years outside my house so it may be a little stiff... Mark-The-Miser-UK "Be like me; drive a Quantum TD"
