I've thrown a VT transmission on the back of a VR and didn't encounter any problems at all. Just swap over the extension housings, and you should be good to go. :)

vt tranny into vr ???

Hi,Ive had a 2nd box put in at the cost of the installer,but still has a problem.What happens is that the engine warning light comes on when speed exceeds 85kph and stays on untill ignition is turned off.Whilst light is on lower gear changes become slightly rougher.Ive been told the computers arnt talking to each other and its not worth fixing due to the cost involved.Ive had it on the scanner and cleared the problems but it still comes back ....any experts out there that could help would be appricated...Cheers Paul:spew:
