the new box really is a treat!

in 5th I am doing 110 km per hour. not sure about revs, as I have nog gauge yet, but based on engine sound its about 2500 or so.

And there is power left. when I want to overtake, which I want a lot now, I just accelarate a bit, which goes very smooth and I fly to 130 kph. The windnoise is aweful at that speed, but for a short while it's fun!

Really, these ratios work much better for me!

and no oil leak from the box, without any piece of hose or something like that

it's from an audi A4, TDI. so basically the same donor as the old car, but there is so much variety in ratios that you really have to look for the correct code.

Basically the lower gears are comparale, but 4 and 5 are way better.
