    Default Best rally gearbox for 205 Mi16?

    Motorman is building a 205 gravel rally car with an Mi16 engine. It started out as a 1.9 GTi. The final drive ratio is way too long for his purposes (he is looking for at least 4.9) and the gearbox ratios not too suitable for gravel. What are his options?

    The Mi16 box has a 4.43 FD.
    Slightly wider ratios than the GTi box but more important to get the shorter second gear.
    I have an Mi16 box with GTi 3rd and 4th, Mi16 5th for highway cruising.

    Thanks, Graham, I will pass this along. Is there another option for a FD shorter than 4.43?

    Yes, Quaife make a special, also there are some other PSA diffs, vans etc but don't know the details.
    Have a look on 205gti drivers in the UK.
