this is for my daily driver Jetta will be around 240 Hp and I do not plan on racing with it but I do quite a bit quick sprints, getting on freeways and so on, and I am afraid that I will blow 3rd or 4th gear,

Glad I could help, but that's the extent of my knowledge on the 02J. Hopefully you can do some more searching and find someone or a shop that has dealt with 02J transmissions a lot and knows how to re-enforce them.

That or they might tell you the same thing we've been telling you that unless you wanna upgrade to a sequential transmission in your 02J, your best bet is to go with a 02M transmission.

You could try calling FFE Racing and see what they would recommend. http://www.fferacing.com/index.html

Good luck with building your 02J.

Wouldn't a pinion brace help? There is one you can put on the inside of the bell housing (by the clutch) and the bearing portion that Cascade German sells.

I'm leaning towards 02M tranny, but I'd definitely need an LSD, sigma 6 short shifter, SMF clutch and flywheel, I'm looking around $3.5k easy buying all parts and 6 speed tranny

What would you have in the 02J you were planning? $3.5k sounds cheap

I've got $5.5k in my 02M
- 2k for complete trans swap assembly from europe (includes clutch, axles, starter, etc)
- 900 for Wavetrack LSD
- 800 for someone to install LSD and perform fork fixes
- 800 for a South Bend Clutch/flywheel (been replaced once, another $800 )
- 700 for Raxles (replaced one once, warrantied + $70 in shipping)
- 350 for Sigma 6 Short Shifter

Honestly a 240HP, single turbo ALH daily driver sounds like a contradiction in terms.

Many people just do the complete assembly from europe, reusing all the components so you'd have a bit over $2k in it. The DMF clutch holds around 300 ft lbf if I remember, the axles and such are also sufficient for that torque. For a daily driver I'd think this would be sufficient? I "use" mine a lot, have snow to deal with and Raxles were cheaper than OEM axles (not a fan of CRAP) so that was my rationalization for the $ spent

heh I've got about 2k into my 0a6
but I made my own flywheel and splined my own axles, so with a reasonable labor rate it'd be near your 6k number
