Question gearbox replacement

hi, im new to this forum, so please bare with me.

to start, im quite good with cars, i know quite a bit..

im driving a 2002 bug with a 2003 sti engine conversion.

basically after pulling away from a junction on full boost going from 1st to 2nd, i lost drive and my gearbox went bang!

it selects 2nd fine but has no drive.. its stripped..

i can just about get it into 1st,3rd and 4th but i havnt even been able to select 5th!

im running the ty754vn2aa box which i was told is the stronger of the 5speed manuals

but im finding it hard to get hold of one locally and was wondering if there was any other options, i.e a different box code that will work with the diff i have in place? or would it be a diff and gearbox combo?

i can see loads on ebay but only 2/3 with matching codes to mine and that are from a genuine breakers and not someones back yard!

any help would be great!

Re: gearbox replacement

How come its not fitted with the 6 speed box? Maybe that's why you had problems. I'm sure the guys with the knowledge will help

Reads as a wrx with STi engine fitted(conversion)

But I agree just get a 6 speed and all the bits and "fit and forget"

Re: gearbox replacement

its ok, i have just purchased a replacment box, managed to find one that was the same code.

the reason a six speed box isnt on the cards is because im not planning on keeping the car much longer, will most probs put it up for sale in the next few months.
