Gearbox alternative for Exeo ST TDI 143Hp


Registered User
Hi all!

I'm looking for your opinion on replacing my gearbox. Gear ratios in the current one are way too long for me.
I frequently find myself in between gears when in slowish traffic. 6'th gear is unusable since 2000 revs in 6'th gives 125 km/h and is slow to accelerate. Third gear at 5000 revs gets me to 140 km/h.
With three people on board and a full trunk i have to downshift until i get over 2400 revs up a slight hill. The engine load is just too much; sounds like a loaded truck crawling up a hill.
Engine is fine.
So, what do you guys think? Witch one would you choose and why?
(Highlighted in gray is the wheel torque at 2000 RPM 6'th gear in NM)
