What is the tallest rati box that will mate straight up to a C16SE?
Seen a TD Corsa (i think it was) in my local breakers... Is this a good bet?

Will the flywheel / Clutch splines all match up?

Any other thoughts?

Basically i'm dropping a C16SE into a mini for the missus - but she wants the 'classic' 10" wheels on it - so i need a super tall OD or FD ratio...

Wow, that's one short 1st gear! A 2800RPM drop between 1st and 2nd if shifting at 6K RPM!
Also, the overall ratio of 2.655 (5th) is maybe a little too high for me...
Can you suggest one a touch lower?

If not, what model will i find this F10 fitted to?

Cheers for your help!

0.71 is the smallest 5th gear used on any GM box. all you can hope to do is use a wide ratio box and slip a smaller final drive in there. 3.55 or something.

all the close ratio boxes, 5th is the same as 4th in that wide box.
