anyone ever had this issue before?

That's really bad luck James :blah:

You've spent a fair bit on your car recently, and with everything else, you don't need that !!

Try PM'ing Mike from Fast Apex, to see if he has a some gearbox options for you, and get RSE to fit it, if they're nearer to you ??

i will get rse to fit it for sure but they are along way from me so its £150 to get my car there on a transporter i guess

oh well i guess thats part of evo ownership hey! are you doing round one of the sprint ken?

My plan is to be at Silverstone, and I've got the car out of the garage today for the first time in months. I'm off to ND's place next week for a couple of bits and pieces, so wanted to run it around for a few days.

The 6RS box will go in, but I believe you have to change the gear linkage and gear lever cradle.

PM Antony @ Indigo-GT, as he's recently replaced a 5 speed VII to a 6 speed box, so he may still have all the 5 speed bits that you need kicking around ;)

Just make sure you get your clutch checked with the box out, as I didn't measure my clutch plates when I replaced my gearbox, as the clutch "Looked" ok, plus it was only fitted less than a year before I bought my car. Ultimately one sprint later I had my box back out as my clutch was shagged... :rolleyes:

Almost exactly the same problem that I had before christmas except it was 4th gear that I couldn't get into instead on 6th.

I now have a 5 speed RS box fitted.

Also just a bit of advice if you do a fair bit of motorway driving, and go for the RS box, get a 4.11 final drive put in it.

The normal RS box revs a bit high on the motorway e.g. 80 mph = 4,000 revs in 5th when that is 100mph in 6th with the 6 speed box.

Craig

P.S hope you get it all sorted soon bud. I know how it feels having the car off the road for weeks :wallbang:.
