I have one I inherited - I'd have to get the model # from it, but I think it's from an MKV TDI. Missing 5th gear, and I was told has a slight 2nd-3rd gear grind (typical). Appears to work OK, but needs some TLC. Interested?

Probably pass on that Mike, but thanks! :) Just looking for a turn-key gearbox.

Not sure what I was thinking with the VR gears in the GLI. There is a huge gap between 2nd and 3rd. That, and the cruise works in 1st through 4th but not 5th because its out of an acceptable RPM/VSS to the ECU. I also would like an upgraded differential as power wants to hop between wheels in a straight line at full boost. Takes two hands on the wheel :confused:

Gotcha! Just throwing it out there, we never know what you are up to :)

So if you are looking for a turnkey trans, then you want an 02J? Basically anything out of an MKIV Jetta/Golf/Beetle 1.8T or 2.0 (not VR6 or TDI).

Here's a really good link for VW transmission reference that may help for reference: http://www.zelek.com/diagram_charts/diagramlist.htm

There may be something in one of the Billings junkyards.

Probably should have worded. "Looking for a stock MK4 1.8T o2j Transmission".

I'll have to check out that CL gearbox. My last one came from the junk yard in Billings. Don't think I want to pay much more than a few hundred for a 5speed unless its already got an LSD.

Why not just buy a new one from VW? You should be able to get a new one for around $1500. I dunno, I've been down the crap used transmission road. Ended up costing me more than if I just bought a new one and put an LSD in it.
