      As much as you CAN drive a dog box, I personally wouldnt consider it to be streetable.
      If there was a demand for a synchro version of this gearbox it could be developed. I know vr6 guys have had issues with gears breaking, not sure again why that is, but if you dont forsee yourself running a dog box and want a synchro one we would be able to do that. There would most likely be a 5 set minimum order.

      Ed if you could keep the price the same or close, I'm sure there would be plenty of interest(myself included). If you posted a feeler thread in the R32 forum you may be shocked at the level of interest

      So you guys want a stronger than stock synchro gear set with ratios set up for drag racing, street car stuff, or what?
      Im assuming longer 1st as well, I just need to gauge interest and make sure everyone is happy with the ratios and the plotted mph in 4th gear if it is for drag racing.

      everything is finished except for the hardening process. They will be for sale shortly, if you would like to put a deposit on a set or need more info feel free to contact me or Ed.

      Here are some parts to show how close and serious we are about bringing the 1-4 dog set w/ billet input shaft including pilot bearing snout.

      All gear sets are designed ONLY for FZQ trans code and stock ring and pinion.

      **R32 3/4/6 gear set is in the works but deff not our top priority as these gear sets were designed and made to help FFE shop and customer cars go fast, Ed was nice enough to allow anyone to purchase these because he understands not everyone is local and can't be an in house customer.**

      Stock input shaft to the left, 3 FFE input shafts to the right


      some gears (not everything in this pic is for FZQ)


      Pricing at this moment is looking a little north of 5k, it could change depending on final price once these reach FFE. Pricing will be set by the manufacturer NOT FFE so please no one complaining about price, Ed is just trying to offer what he paid out of pocket to have built for his own drag cars.

      Hope you all enjoy

      i believe that's 20th AE

    16. 11-09-2010 11:00 PM #41
      4 cyl US trannies are

      Err - 337 FML - 20th ae -closed case end with conical roller bearing not compatible without new case and bearings

      Fzq- gli - open case end roller bearing with circlip lock and open case end with dust cap

      All 04+ cars and current share this case and bellhousing design. As does r32

      Fml and fzq share same ring and pinion ratio err is different.

      Yeah Ed, looks real good, but from experience with new parts that looks real good you need to put it to the test asap then you will see the potential, that is the bad part of being first to desigh new stuff. Good luck with it and that is good for VW 02m owners

      Marc you know we will put them to the test. The manufacturer makes gear sets for other fwd brand cars that hold over 1000whp with no failure, knowing that he let us know the 02m gears are way beefier than anything fwd he had done before. We will be confident their will be no issues but that doesn't change the fact that we are gonna put them in the most extreme conditions.

      Marc you want to join us with an 02m next season? I know you are tired of tearing 3rd gear apart when you hit full boost.

      I talked with these guys at the Texas Mile in October, they said they were working with FFE and a stronger gear set. Hope it solves all the problems you guys are having with stock gear sets...
