    They have become like rocking horse poo! And as such when they are found the prices are rather high. Good luck!

    Only 4988 VR-4s were made as a manual, the rest (17626) were automatic, therefore, as Nick says, they're not particularly common, and difficult to get hold of, and when you do, people know the rarity, so it's not cheap!

    Thanks for the replies, any other suggestions regarding the possibilities for gearbox then?

    Currently running my Fto box but didn’t want to spend the money on lsd etc for it if there was a better ratio option.

    Thanks again

    Oh, didn't realise you were in an FTO, so you're looking for a FWD gearbox... that changes things a bit!

    I've heard that the ratios in a UKDM 2.5 V6 n/a gearbox are a bit better suited than the FTO's box - but I think you need to do some mixing and matching with FTO bits to get an LSD into it...?
