Transmission #1 and 2 have gone in the trash. Apparently the little Toyota G52 can't handle this much torque of a 27psi TDI.

I found my 3rd transmission of the summer for $250. A Toyota W58 from a 80's supra, I used the bell housing from the G52 cut the shifter hole a little and moved the trans crossmember back an inch. The sports car trans is geared quite a bit higher then the truck trans but it will have to do. I hope the W58 stays together better then the G52's did. I've put 100km on the W58 so far and 5th gear is noticeably taller.

Lets hope this one lasts a little longer for you. do you think its a matter of the gearing in the trans not being compatible with the torque at such low RPMs? or are you just hammering on it and they are breaking from rough use?'

would a rear end ratio change help things perhaps?

the G series is a pretty weak trans, another option is a W59 from a tacoma ... a little stronger than the 56 but you probably won't need it now

that's actually the input gear, first gear is father down the line ... however power flow travels through the input gears for all forward gears and reverse except fourth which bypasses the cluster entirely and goes straight through the mainshaft... this is why a car with a stripped input still pulls in fourth

you can't actually see first gear in the photos, it's just out of frame beside the straight cut set which is reverse and just beyond that is fifth

Yep your right I was a little dyslexic looking at the gears.
