Prob mean the same thing, but I always think of a plug as a small male piece for an individual small discrete part. Where as a buck is the complete form of an entire complex object, including frame/formwork and scaffolding etc. can be broken into multiple pieces. Semantics really. They’re basically the same thing :)

Thanks guys. I try to learn stuff I don't know :)


Ed's definition sounds logical.

Asked a couple of US guys some time back what the difference was between a couch and a sofa. They had no idea :)

 decided to go with this gearbox from the v6 TDI I've chosen this as its a cheap derivative and plenty of them about as to whether it can withstand the torque is another matter but being as its supposed to be the same as an 01e box in dimensions and the same as the later Porsche boxes it wont be a problem swapping it out at a later date




done some calculations based on the horsepower  and fluid flow dynamics of the Exige v6 body to give an estimated top speed with the ratios in the box

I know they may be a bit wide for a track car but should be interesting for a lazy road car for now.

Better build strong bodywork if you are going up to 223 MPH!

expect a few other things would come flying off long before the bodywork does lol

for those that asked previously with this engine and gearbox, the length from the front of the engine to the centerline of the axle will be 680mm adding a little to the front of the engine to make space for the waterpump

Yes a shorter box is available for this engine

I went for the longer box as it's very similar to the Porsche box also my engine didn't come with a flywheel so I plan on using the rs4 b7 flywheel lightened and a paddle clutch
