    Sachs "quiet clutch" in a 5.5 BHW manual conversion?

    Good to hear PR. A friend of mine ordered that kit too but doesn't lkke the engagement when starting out, which surprised me. He is extremely picky though.

    Help select clutch BHW FHN

    FWIW, Whitebread has worked with Southbend to offer 3 clutch opens which will work directly with his flywheel. I would definitely go this route for a FWD gearbox. The weight of Matt's flywheel works great. He just updated his web page with the Southbend options last Monday. I noticed the pics...

    05 Passat 4 motion wagon BHW 01e swap issues

    FWIW, when I converted a 2004 Passat 4mo 5 speed wagon to TDI, I went with a 5 speed 4mo box from Europe and kept the ABS module. The 4mos that I have messed with didn't have ESP. I cleared all the lights and had it programmed correctly but could never get the cruise to work.

    FS: 2012 VW Tiguan TDI/DSG - Greenville, SC SOLD

    I know Euro TDI Tigs came with a 7 speed 4m0 DSG, fairly certain a 6 speed standard 4mo auto and of course a 6 speed 4mo manual. They all bolt up to the CJAA. The easiest as far as wiring and least expensive would be the manual. For auto, the easier wiring but more expensive option is the DSG...

    Ongoing intermittent crank issue on my 2005 Passat.

    A few things. 1. What is your current torsion value? 2. You said you have voltage drop. Just had to replace the cable from Alternator to starter and starter to battery. Had random no turnover and no voltage getting to battery from alternator. This will not affect the long starts but could...
