Help me Obi Wan Kanobi you're my only hope, my dad picked up a cyborg gearbox last night for me which I got from a wreckers. I looked it over and all it says is F5M22-2 and nothing else! As I am a girl and doing everything on my car myself I need some help! What gearbox is it? How can i tell without the XVRE etc etc after the 2? Is it LSD or not. I am so confused and about the cry!

Thanks
Amy

Hi Amy,

There must be more than just F5M22-2 on it. Are the rest of the numbers damaged? It should look a bit like this:

probably XRXE aka non-lsd

easiest way to tell is to look through the hole where the axles go on the transmission. if you see a cross shaft intersecting the hole then it's a non-lsd. If you can look straight through with no obstruction it is an LSD box.

I've attempted to recover some of the lost graphics in the FAQ Gearbox codes post (viewtopic.php?f=34&t=4275), but haven't come up with much. If you Google it, there is a KF5M222VPKF gearbox, but it comes off a Galant I think.

Whatever it is, it isn't a Mivec gearbox...
