Yes I was able to score a TT shifter assembly, I'm not certain if it's really necessary but when I took apart the 02j shifter I grabbed from the jy for the conversion I found the lever was bent and a local gave me a TT shifter for free.

I have not installed the shifter yet. I was going to disassemble and relubricate the mechanism since it was underwater during one of the floods. Did you buy the Polo parts or cut your body?

So the TT shift has a 10 o'clock offset and a different length maybe? I know the weight has a shorter throw for front-to-back. Anything else?

I have a bunch of these shifter weights now.
Pin style Audi TT or whatever late 02J with 20% shorter throw front-to-back: 8N0 211 051 A
Pin style normal:1J0 711 051 Q
Ball style:1J0 711 051 D

I don't plan to use the Audi TT short shifter weight if someone wants to buy it. I am a lazy shifter. It's the best way to protect your tranny from a hard jerking.

My differential finally came in. If you want one and have the money, I recommend you buy it and keep it under your bed until you need it. Now that I have this LSD, I can finally do this tranny! Very excited!

The 1st through 3rd gear upgrade is awesome. 1st gear is no longer too low and you shift into second around 15 MPH instead of 10 for casual driving. It took a lot of the burn-out-monster out of the car but I bet it is faster now because more time is spent in first. I put a Peloquin in also so that is also a major factor. 2nd through 3rd are proportionately sized to make for smooth shifting into 4th gear. The gears come from a 1.8T and I believe a VR6 also. I wish there was a nicer upgrade for 4th gear. The one option I saw on Boraparts was expensive and too insignificant of an increase (+7%?) to match well with an upgraded 5th gear.

Does anybody have recommendation for a transmission mount that is stronger? I split another hydraulic mount in half. I do not want to transmit any more vibration so racing mounts are out. Remember it's a daily driver.

The G60 Corrado uses a solid rubber mount, that is the next step up from the hydraulic. The great part is that its only $25 shipped or so. The bad part is the installation is something I don't like to do by itself.

For what it's worth the G60 mount is definitely a source of vibration frustration in my life. Were the hydraulic mounts you broke VW or another supplier?

also consider replacing all of the mounts at one time.

The Chinese mounts broke right away. The top plate just pulls right out. I have been using parts car mounts and those hold up for about a year. I remember the G60 mount giving me vibrations many years ago. I might have to look into modifying the stock mounts if possible.

In the VW Corrado world we found mounts would fail when mounts weren't all replaced at the same time.

Boraparts now Cascade German has this set of mounts that I bought a few years back and had great success with.
