I know this is a long shot :shock: :shock:

Is there any chance that the Vauxhall Vectra A gearbox is the same as the Vauxhall Calibra one.

Fitted with the XEV 16v ecotec engine. I know the engines are interchangeable because I fitted the Vectra one in the Calibra as a replacement engine.

Juniors gearbox is fubar :shock: :shock: :shock: Only Two gears left & they don't sound very clever. At least that has slowed his speed down :lol: :lol: :lol:

No Calibra ones about but plenty of Vectra ones to be had for not a lot. ;)

In short I know the Vectra gearbox will bolt to the engine, just not so shure about the driveshaft fitment.

It may help to say it is a 1996 2litre 16v ecotec model :oops:

Hi Ron
Im not sure of the answer and by the look of it, not many on here do either. I think your best bet could be going onto one of the vauxhall owners forums (if such a place exsits)

Sorry I cant be of more help? :?
