03/15 - Unfortunately since 2012 my costs have gone up a few times so now I'm finally forced to raise prices $30 on the kit. The new cost for the gears and install kit package is $160 shipped.
They are a 42T and 32T set for a 0.7619 ratio.
These are new aftermarket gears, not used, and include the parts needed to swap the gears into the trans.
Unfortunately, they won't fit into the MK2 16V codes (AGB, 2Y) or the MK3 2.0L codes (AMC, CHE, DFQ) without modification -- with the exception of the newer DFQ codes made after June 1, 1997.
I can now modify the gears here to fit the MK3/16V codes that use the special clip. Modification involves removing the integral washer from the top of the gear, and adding a divot in the face of the gear for the special locking clip. The cost of a modified set of 0.76 gears to fit the MK3/16V codes is $200 shipped for the gears and install kit.
The gears are made in China by the same factory that makes parts for Shanghai VW.
That is VW in China... they started in 1984, but due to Chinese laws, VW couldn't legally own their own business. They own 50% with China owning the rest.
Anyway, the factory that makes parts for Shanghai VW has made the 5th gears for me.
They are HRC58-63 on the hardness scale and are deep carbonized to 0.5mm-0.7mm depth.
The gear swap can be done with the trans in the car, but it is easier with it out and on the bench.
Info on doing the swap can be found here http://brokevw.com/5thswap.html
The install parts include a new 5th gear bolt, 5th fork lock plate, 5th gear circlip, and the 5th housing paper gasket. All of the install parts are OE VW with the exception of the paper gasket, which is OEM Reinz.
USPS Priority shipping with Delivery Confirmation is included.
