    Standard LET on an F20 box

    How often do peeps think it will last in either mileage or timespan as i'm on a budget and can't afford to buy the engine at the same time as an F28 box plus don't want the hassle of fitting an F28 into the Nova really??

    Cheers

    without a limited slip differential it might last quite a while.

    more grip = more load on box.... (and shafts/cvs)

    remember peeps have been running lets on f20 for years... it's only now that the phase kits are killing the boxes

    Let on F20

    I ran a F20 with the LET for about a year and a half with no problems. Then put a F28 when the phase kit was fitted.
    LET is better with the 6 speed!

    A standard Turbo engine should be OK with an F20 as long as you are not brutal with it but it won't last forever.

    Its so tempting to up the power on the engine though that you might find yourself needing the F28 soon
