I WAS WANDERING IF ANYONE COULD SHED A LIGHT LIGHT  ON MY GEARING PROBLEM. I'VE GOT A 1990 T3 FITTED WITH A PASSAT 1.9D, I'M RUNNING 16" ALLOYS WITH 205-55-16 TYRES BUT WHEN I'M ON THE MOTOR WAY DOING ABOUT 60 ITS JUST OUT OF THE REDLINE WHICH I THINK CAN'T BE DOING THE MOTOR ANY GOOD. I'VE TRIED TO FIND THE CODE ON THE BOX AND THE ONLY LETTERS I CAN FIND ARE  - ASP-  AND THAT CORISPONDS WITH THE WHITE STICKER IN THE CAB. I'M IN THE UNDERSTANDING THAT THE 2.1 PETROL BOX HAS A TALLER 5TH GEAR SO I'M GUESSING THATS THE WAY TO GO.   BARING IN MIND MY BUS IS AN OLD GERMAN ARMY CREW BUS I WAS WONDERING IF IT HAD A LOWER RATIO BOX FITTED IN THE FIRST PLACE. THANKS FOR LISTENING.

to be honest, if you have a box from a 1.7D, just about any box will be an improvement.

3H diesel box or similar would be better than what you have...

you just need to be careful you dont go too high, cos you wont have enough power to go up through the gears.
