will this work?
i mean in terms of vfm.
i've been toying with the idea for a while, and really thought i was going to do it, but will it really be worthwhile? i read on here somewhere (but can't find it now) that although the f28 has closer ratios and a higher top gear than the f20 (saying better acceleration and higher top speed to me), the extra weight and transmission drag will negate any gains.
would i be better to just get mine serviced (or whatever, it's done 100k and is a bit leaky, grumbly) is there stuff i can do myself? seals n stuff? hoe easy is it to get replacement parts for worn and chipped cogs etc?
the way i see it, my choice is either to recondition my box (or get it reconditioned... how much?) or slap a recon f28 on.
