    Hi All,

    I am currently lavishing a lot of money of a 1993 legend coupe I have rescues from a certain end at the scrap yard.

    I recently performed a 3 by 3 gearbox oil change on the car but have noticed that recently when shifting between 3rd and 4th that the revs increase before the car changes gear.
    Been doing some research and it it either the clutch wearing out or the seals starting to let go...
    a VERy expensive fix...

    my question is this.
    Is it possible to swap out the gearbox from a later legend 1997 onward with the current unit?
    it is possible to swap the whole engine and gearbox out as a thought?

    Thanks in advance of any advice...
