Hey all! Got a great low-mileage 1.9 T4, W Reg (2000), that's been fab to me but is a tad low-geared: i'm averaging 3100rpm at 65-70mph. Since i go on a major Euro trip around once a year, covering several 1000 miles, a mechanic mate suggested modifying the gearbox – perhaps changing the fifth gear size or using a T5 gearbox - to drop cruising speed in 5th gear by a few hundred revs. This is way out of my league mechanically. Anyone know if it's possible? Anyone ever done it??!

Ta!
