I just picked up the car from the gearbox place.

It is a totally different machine to drive. So smooth. Seriously smooth.

The rev hunting on the overrun has vanished. The gears downshifting are not noticeable as the car slows to a stop.

I was told the internal seals were incredibly worn, and this would cause many issues as the clutchpacks cannot get the correct fluid amounts due to internal leaking.

However, it is all done now. Recommend these parts are changed every 100,000 klms.
