Fiesta IB5 gearbox dead

Recommended Posts


Im a fiesta 1.0 ecoboost owner, with stage 1 remap (bluefin), airtec stage 2 intercooler, backbox delete + decat, torque mount, turbosmart dual port, etc... and recently my gearbox starting crunching when selecting 2nd and then suddenly it wouldnt go in. I started by replacing the clutch, but the gearbox got worst, so now i know for sure its the gearbox and seems like the 2nd synchros... 

Knowing the mods in my car... what would be the best solution?

getting a second hand gearbox and replacing it? it can happen again...

doing the ib6 conversion ? 

I know bluefin is known by blowing synchros as it increments the torque a lot... im really confused and dont know what to do. Also my economic situation is quite bad right now...

That's the risk you take with modifying a car I'm afraid.

The easiest solution is to fit another ib5 as the ib6 conversion is more than just fitting a gearbox (need driveshafts, clutch, linkages etc.).

I know... although i never abused the car as i dont like doing it. I always look after it and maintain it. Most probably ill be getting a second hand gearbox and just replacing it. Ill change the remap bcoz i feel bluefin is quite harsh on low gears for a custom where ill limit the torque so the gearbox doesnt get too much pressure. Lets see... i hope i solve this problem 😞
