    Is there any advantage of the drp gearbox over the other v6 boxes? they seem to be a bit of a premium on them

    Its alledged the ratios are better but not really noticed tbh...

    The gear boxes are the earlier type with the tapered bearings...

    I need to have a quick look at the R32 box seeing as it wasn't the cause of my issue and get rid... Did think of keeping it as a spare but tbh I don't have the space really

    You can tell the drp’s from the others because they have the solid casing that is all alloy. Like your S3 one.

    the “not so good” boxes have a couple of plastic caps held in with C clips.

    I think you mean by 'not so good' you mean works fine but not as desirable as the DRP gearbox :) (killing my sales pitch here man!! lol)

    Anyhoo... now that I can actually drive the car at last I have had a chance to get the VE table in a happy place...

    Big thanks to Brian for his ninja log reading skills and assistance in this... the car drives nicely albeit at a pace that even the A2 would be potentially ashamed off... but she does sound rather awesome so I can live with that... for now!!..

    Will be playing with VVT next as thats currently not enabled just because I can... not expecting much to be honest as the FMIC pretty much kills top end power at the moment but I don't really care...

    I have some stuff to do on the A2 for now anyway so this will be it for the S3 for now... I have a few more odds and sods to get for the turbo conversion and a couple of bits to sort out how to implement but the conversion won't happen until the new year anyway..
