I just ordered the .658. :)
Can you confirm that a modification is required?
I just spoke to the supplier and they have all the gear sets available except the .681 as it is obsolete. They did confirm that the larger gears will fit the 02J as well. I used to do a lot of...
Found that place too.
That's the key right there. I cruise at 80 @ 3k, It would be nice to be closer to 2K.
When I pull the gear box I am going to swap out the 5th gear, was wondering if and what some of you 12V guys have swapped to?
02J 5 Speed.
I found a place that has the following:
Hey guys, hope I find you well.
Does anyone know the part numbers or where to buy the TDI 5th gear swap? I'd like to get new and not used but any info would be great.
And I never even heard of them. I'll check them out for sure.
Anyone else have a recommendation for a performance clutch? Something more than stock?
I have 0 issues with the clutch now, works well but I can't bring myself to reinstall a clutch with 250K on it. No leaks of any kind, hydraulic system is functioning perfectly.
Yeah, I checked the plug and pins first. I like the switch. I don't like the switches in the newer cars though, step on the brake, step on this, hold one hand in the air..... just press and vroom!
I saw the ECS mounts, mine are shot, they are planned for sure.
ECS over BFI?
Thanks for the advice.
The entire cooling system was replaced in March. Every hose, plastic part, component etc. I actually had the original thermo housing and crack pipe which started to leak at...
The switch ended up be defective. I burned it up on the side of the road. The plug was find actually. I not only replaced the switch but installed an engine start button. I hate having to turn the...
Gear box has a leak, timing chains need to be done soooo. The mounts are really worn, engine rocks back and forth so much I am about to sing it a lullaby.
I am going to install an LSD, Raxles,...
I'm at a point where I need to do my chains, 15 years, 250K. The engine has 0 issues, solid as can be, burns no oil. I have yet to remove the head so I am not sure what it looks like under there but...
I'm considering a new clutch from "Clutch Masters" for my VR. I've heard nothing but good things, still wanted to ask you guys before deciding.
Also, I noticed Engine/Trans mounts are being made...
After an injury, I couldn't drive for a while so while injured I installed a new audio system which is pretty bad ass but now I fired it up and the chains are making one hell of a racket.
Well, I have 15 years and 250K miles on mine. If you haven't done the timing chains yet, then you may want to consider doing them with the head gasket. If you have a shop do this work, it may be very...
I have nylon spacers between the coil and bracket and have had 0 issues. I've since moved my battery to the trunk as well due to heat issues. (Larger battery)
That would certainly explain the problem for sure, hence the reason they are using a 40A relay and not the standard 10A.
I'll take a look at it, thanks for the replay, appreciate it.
