    gearbox DHW Vs CTE

    ok my CTE gearbox is getting very nosiey in my 1.8T sport FWD 1996 i have found a secondhand one with low miles on it cheap but is a DHW. Ive loooked up on Elsawin both gearboxes and they look much the same.


    Here are the ratio's for both gearboxes can someone confirm that it will be ok

    My box CTE

    Final Drive 37: 10=3.700
    1st 35: 10=3.500
    2nd 36: 17=2.110
    3rd 39: 30=1.300
    4th 35: 34=1.029
    5th 31: 37=0.838
    Reverse 31: 9=3.444

    Clutch 228mm
    Driveshat 108mm
    overall ratio topgear 3.444 <----- this is the only number which is diffrent

    The box im thinking of buying DHW

    Final Drive 37: 10=3.700
    1st 35: 10=3.500
    2nd 36: 17=2.110
    3rd 39: 30=1.300
    4th 35: 34=1.029
    5th 31: 37=0.838
    Reverse 31: 9=3.444

    Clutch 228mm
    Driveshat 108mm
    overall ratio topgear 3.100 <----

    can anybody confirm that the gearbox will be ok and what diffrence the topgear ratio will make to my car going from 3.444 on the CTE to 3.100 on the DHW


    cheers all

    don't know you will have to check bolt pattern, what year it is compare to yours may give some hints but you need to check in detail the specs.. spline numbers on input and output shafts will need to match if you are going to use your original items

    final drive, the lower the number the lower your revs will be, essentially it is the ratio of the back end that makes this, this box you want to put in will behave the same if you use your original rear end.

    EDIT: oops just realise front wheel drive, so that would be the front end diff not the rear end.

    Why don't you go 2.8 as your already looking at going BT so this would be a good prep point.

    I have not done this but breakers is the first point of call and from what I have read any 5 speed from the 30v will fit.
