      APT guys,
      Heres my situation if you dont mind helping and advising. I have a 03 gti 24v w/o2m gearbox. Had some noises coming from gearbox and first off-the-hip diagnosed a possible output shaft bearing seeing the moise sounded like marbles in 1st gear. Upon pulling gearbox is when i found the stock dual-mass flywheel w/a lot of play with the flywheel. Opted at the time to replace the clutch w/ FST stage 1+ clutch kit. After reassembly and first test drive car feels much better but still have the "marbles grumbling" sound and slight vibration. With clutch not engaged the "marbles" are still there but if you engage the clutch everything is fine. Chatter is not a problem just rev a little higher off the line. I also have BFI stage 2 mounts so everything is more pronounced than stock.
      My questions are with your experience and knowledge do you fellas see much wear on the input and output shafts and does the description of my issues sound alonh those parts? I have the ability to do the repairs but am leaning on just letting the experts hand these things, big faer would be missing something or not being able to get parts. I have dropped about $2500 in the last couple of months but before i start modding i want my car reliable and safe. Please any info or guidance you can give me is most appreciated. Thank you Grant Ford

      Honestly with what your describing I would really need the trans here and there is definitely some internal issue and really don't wanna guess blindly at it.

      silly question but do you have o2m boxes in stock for sale? have you seen wear on input/output shafts? Short on solutions. Thank you

      --02 GTI 1.8t--Trans is pretty stiff while shifting and tends to grind if I attempt to powershift in pretty much any gear. Motor and tranny are out right now for motor build, going to try different fluid in the tran to see if it helps but what do you think could be the problem/estimate for rebuild? I live in AZ
      pm if possible, thanks.

      Sounds like possibly something with the shift tower/forks inside the trans

      The problem is once it grinds once it starts causing irreversible damage to the hub and syncros

      Rebuild are $300 plus parts

      APT,

      Looking for some expert advice.

      I have a Mk IV Golf, APR stage 3 with a SPEC Stg2 VR6 clutch, G60 single-mass steel Flywheel, with a swapped out taller 5th gear for optimal freeway cruising. Well I have been having an issue shifting into 3rd gear in approximately the 2500-3500 range whether upshifting or down shifting. When trying to put it into gear it gets kicked out and the shifter reverberates there. So today did a transmission fluid change to the synthetic AMS 75W-90 hoping that would fix it. The fluid swap did help a bit but the issue isn't completely resolved. What do you think?

      may be something with the shifter linkage/cables but that would be the lucky thing, other more likely issue is probably something with the 3/4 selector hub

      hi.

      i currently have a 2001 vw GTI VR6 with 160,000 miles and the 5-speed manual transmission, and every now and then a gear will grind. i'm thinking a rebuild will be needed soon. so now i was wondering... does the rebuild that you guys do support 350 hp? i've always heard that the 02J 5-speed is weak, but i was hoping it would be possible to build it up so that it can handle some extra power and high RPM shifts, yet still be good for daily driving. so yea, let me know what your guys' rebuild is capable of handling, thanks.

      Do you sell beefed up syncro and gear rebuild kits for an 02j or is it just factory replacement parts? I am doing a gt35r build on my 02 gti 1.8t and either need to beef up the trans or swap it out, please let me know, thanks.

      the only options really for that would be to switch to 02A syncros and gear assemblies, the syncro teeth are twice as big therefore more durable and the gear teeth are slightly larger. This however doesnt add a whole lot in terms of all out strength.

      Another option is to run our Race Gearset which may be need for teh power a 35r is capable of.

      I'm in need of a transmission but not just another stock one that will break if I floor it. As of right now I have more money than I usually have so I'm tempted to buy something that will hold over 500wtq. I need basically the best I can get for an 03 1.8t whether that's a built 5spd or 6spd I don't care. I just want something (If it exists) that doesn't have to be rebuilt/replaced every month. I have 8 cores in my garage and they all are destroyed. Some break when shifting into 2nd or 3rd. But one has broke while doing a 3rd gear pull. Now that's just disappointing not being able to go WOT in a car you've invested so much money into. But if I can't find a transmission that can take the power I'm going to be parting the car out and building another honda. I can have just as much fun driving around in a Honda with the same transmission for years but with the gti I've had 8 in 2 years... Please get back to me asap. Whether it's buying a whole new transmission or sending one of mine it just let me know what it'll cost me to get one. If you could send it in a pm that'd also be nice. Thanks.

      A rebuilt trans would be roughly $1700, what is wrong with yours? 99% of the time it is substantially cheaper to rebuild what you have.

      My o2a doesn't go into reverse. I think pretty much all the syncros are shot, and the axel seals leak..... yeah I think thats everything. lol

      How much for a rebuilt trans? 178WHP. Something thats going to last. I'd have two cores.

      Feel free to call, email, or pm but trying to resolve this via our transmission repair thread isn't the most feasible way, mainly because Im just a middle man.
