Box oil won't save it in my experience it may make it quieter though but not in my case, rebuilds start at around 700 quid at option depending on what parts are needed or if you want to uprate the internals like i did to take a bit more punishment your looking at about a grand+ you could buy a secondhand box but after fitting (if you don't do it yourself that is) i think it would be around the same figures and unless you've got the box history there's a possibility that it could go the same way as your original one. The choice is yours!

funny you hardly hear the harrier and then only get black flagged on the track :) or anyone got me on video on the roads... errr no..

Ill check out the gearbox and mail you shortly. Doesnt do it when its cold cos the oil is thick and takes ages to warm up in skylines. .
