      For that big of a tire that’s really good.

      Yeah this is still the stock longblock w manifolds, ms3 pro and vp m5 fuel. Tires are huge at 26" which is a good point. I have some 185s I can try

      First hit of the year and bam, busted axle flange. Looked good though.

      Have you ever considered one of the Sequential Shifting Systems that seem to be real popular in Europe?

      Darkside Developments - SSS Sequential Shifter Unit for 02A/02J/02C/02R/02T - 02M/02Q Gearboxes

      I have been eyeballing them, but I would want to use it on a road course.

      Are you going to be using uprated clutch discs?

      Our rules say "any automatic" but manual have to be h pattern. I have a dogbox setup for the car but probably just put the dsg in as its about the same money all in and faster shifting still. Going to use stock clutch until it causes issues.



      Got it apart enough to check it out. Pretty beefy and easier to swap diffs than o2a for sure.

      Do you know what the weights of the two are? DSG vs 02A?

      I imagine you'll be picking up a decent chunk of weight, but I'd be interested to find out exactly how much that'll be. Plus how you're going to be controlling it. I honestly don't know too much about the DSG systems and how easily they could be setup.

      Well, its a good bit. I can toss around an o2a easily. The o2e I can't even lift it.

      Parts needed the way I am doing it:
      Trans/flywheel/starter/shifter
      Custom rear mount and relocated trans cup
      Custom front motor mount
      Redo cooling lines for trans cooler
      Htg Dsg Ecu (standalone)
      Dss stg5 axles
      Peloquin diff with high torque mods

      Probably about 5500 all in so not that different from the dog setup from scratch
