      A Rabbit is not to be wasted on the tentative or weak. Only the worthy are invited, and then only at your own risk. If you have even a modicum of hesitation, DO NOT buy one of these cars. Instead, leave it for a worthy soul who has already matriculated to the sublime ecstasy of what those in the know refer to as a "MK1"

      just thought of something while changing a shifter cable. why not just get a stock cable shift box and mount it ontop of the tunnel instead of below? BAM! raised shfiter.

      Ohh and i wanted to say that my rod shifter setup still uses the factory rod that runs through the tunnel, but makes a huge improvement because the extra stress that a short shifter normally places on the stock plastic bushings is now placed on the shifter lever and its metal bushings. The rod shifter will be set permanently at a 50% reduction in throw and will be bolt in. Should take no more then 20 minutes to install.

      I suppose the rod and cable models aren't interchangable ... since I have the rod shifting but may want to swap to cable down the road.

      What's the ballpark price?

      I have a fully working rod selector model for 020 gearboxes if anyone is interested in buying one!!!

      i'm going to make it only for cable shift trannys at first, and then i'll make the 020 shifter if i can sell these.


      Bahnblitz and 1.8t.......do you have any pics of your setups and info on how they work? Or at the very least a good description of how they differ from the standard linkage?

      I have never seen anything remotely heavy-duty designed to work with the 020 (rod shift boxes) so I'm extremely curious here.

      Here is a preliminary set up from last weekend of my stock VWMS shifter with some pieces i machined to keep the stock tower. They are now being redone/changed a bit and anodized to match the stock pieces. What a bitch!

      I like the way you did the side to side cable... goos chit...

      I'm glad you mentioned that as that was a concern of mine...My stock shifter has already been relocated further towards the rear of the car and I've had to lenghten the stock shift rod.

      On a side note, I voted in your other thread so I'm interested in seeing the final product.

      1.BillyT -do you know if VWMS ever offered taller towers? I like the factory look with the stamped holes.

      DOn't think so. The ones that wer ein the race cars here had taller towers but they were all custom. If you can find a decent race fab shop, they should be able to build a tower that looks just like the original one... but taller.

      To the best of my knowledge, they are stock VWMS cables. Or at least the ones they were using for their shifters. There are no markings on them at all. I've heard that Bildon is now selling B&M cables for this purpose. I dunno. Don't know about the o2o box either. If any one is looking for all styles of threaded rod ends for the shifter cables, I highly recommend spring fix linkages. These are not the easiest to find. They have a great website and a great assortment.

      Anybody want to pony up and show their 020 rod-linkages? I still can't visualize how the heck this works.

      That's definately hot. If someone were to make this, there would definately be a few buyers.

      A German Company called CAE makes a conversion kit for the rod change boxes, as well as a shifter for the cable boxes. Their site is here: http://www.cae-automobiltechnik.de

      Here's some pics:

      Yeah, it is steep, as is the VWM piece, if you can find it, which also runs about $800.00 (at least last time I looked), but for those folks that fabricate, at least they were kind enough to illustrate their solution to converting a rod shift tranny to cable shift.

      I came across another clone of the VWM shifter piece one time on a Swedish site, but I've never been able to find it again.

      I think you are talking about a swedish company called Selholm Tuning !! They do alot of race / rallycars and stuff for these cars too ! they make VWM shifters !

      I am aware of the Sellholm shifter. A nice piece. Sellholm also sells awesome gearkits and rally suspension. Available here: http://www.mobeck.com/

      In addition, I found another German site that does a conversion for 020 boxes: http://www.t-k-sport.de

      The CAE folks said that their conversion does not work on A2-A3 020 boxes.

      I wish that the folks on this thread that have done conversions of the shifter to 020 boxes would share their info.

      On another note, one of these with a short shift kit might work for the 020:

      so is there anyway to convert the rod type to cable type shifter? is there anyway to fab something up? maybe some cables going to the shift linkages and springs to return them?

      Did you miss this, just a few inches above?

      It does exactly what you mention, and it costs almost 600 Euro.

      that looks kind of what I want, I will now look at it more closely and try and fab something, doesn't look complicated at all

      Actually, its the shifter that costs 600 Euro. However, they will only sell this piece if you buy the shifter. The website says they will send you the plans for it so you can build it yourself if you are not buying their shifter.

      The other German company referenced above also does a conversion, but were not as kind as to post a picture of it. Might be worth contacting them though.


    33. 07-18-2005 02:24 AM #103
      I e-mailed them asking for plans and they said they do not give out the plans? Have you been able to get the plans? if so can you post them?

    34. 07-26-2005 12:06 AM #104
      i did the same thing... well almost i cut out the tunnel out of a g60 and welded it into my caddy... used the stock g60 plastics and walla... raised shifter. cable at that for the 02a

      I have seen a motorsport style shifter made for an 020 linkage type... it was pretty cool looking.

      The guy who made it his name is spa on here. Cool guy
