the gearbox isnt notchy at all..it always go;s into gear ( i never miss gears at all )
it just sounds a bit rattly..mostly on idle and lower in the rev range.

Maybe it's the thrust bearing, or the clutch.

How about you try to figure out what it is first.

i have been looking it up. it most likely is the input shaft bearing. looked on youtube of videos also and lots of people have simular problems..when clutch is not engaged the sound go's away.
i have no idea how to fix this and it requires the gearbox to come out lol.
might try gearbox oil and see if the sound go's away first though.
but then again..how do i go about changing gearbox oil? i know service the car..but never done gearbox lol. i shall look it up also :)

input shaft/thrust bearing/clutch

any of those is a likely candidate from the abuse. any way you look at it the gearbox is coming off

yeah the whole lot needs to come out to get at it all unfortunately.....

sucks for us AWDr's

just give all the hoses under the manifold a good look over to make sure they're good, or you might have a pain of a time later if you blow a hose when its all back together.

good luck with it all

just a quick question..how much do u think it should cost to have input shaft bearings replaced in a gearbox..including labour.anyone on here had it done?
hopefully the clutch is still good. i got quoted between $1,500-$2,500 :S  sound about right? lol once its fixed i think im gonna have to put it up for sale lol dont want more issues with the gearbox

hmmm i've got a mate that is a mech, he works around lilydale/bayswater though

he is doing all the work on my bluey, its in pieces at his place now but he is bloody good, if you want his number PM me and i'll get it to you

otherwise try around the traps in your area, but it is hard to find anyone who knows the car

Gerry from Autopuls in dandenong is a gtir specialist, he has rebuilt hundreds of these boxes and i think he will do a great job.

this is quite a late reply but avo in cheltenham do everything. they have a 4wd dyno, they specialise in turbos, they can hi-flow your existing injectors (rather than forking out for aftermarket ones) etc. etc. they are better value than hpf who seem to prefer big-spenders in new cars.

i live in dandenong and look forward to checking out chequered tuning and autopuls after hearing about them on these forums, however cheltenham is not too much of a hike for the 4wd tuning and good general knowledge of avo turboworld. hpf didn't know how to tune my ems and then charged me for a few hours on their dyno despite not tuning the car. and since the guys at avo pulled my car apart and went over it with a fine-tooth comb, they are pretty familiar with the attesas now. tell them Richard sent you and maybe it will help with a good deal (?).

to be fair to hpf, they did do a very thorough job when it came to doing a roadworthy check, including wanting me to remove the oil catch can and sandblast my windscreen in the long list.

i'm also looking into new turbos... will keep you posted re my findings however i'm loving the sound of those chinese 2871's... rough price estimate?

and regarding dump pipe... seeing you're after the best, go for the CES racing dump pipe... fits with a minor mod: one inch of extra pipe welded on to clear the sump. expect to put a grand aside for that...
