Gearbox whine :(

Having just driven around europe in my new (very old) 1996 2000 turbo UK spec, the gearbox started to whine, im guessing due to lack of oil and care in its lifetime.

I want to track the car with the standard engine and no mods to power increase but possibly set up.

I need to know what is recommended regarding the gearbox, shall i change it?

Its not just the while the gear lever floats around all over the place so its pretty easy to miss a gear.

You opinions are appreciated
