I can suppy you with any custom driveline parts for the MK2/3 GTi. Even dog engagement gear sets. There's a guy in Portugal rallying with one of these boxes. But I discourage these for street use. It's easy to miss a gear when having the HH pattern.

If all you have is noise with no shift problems, it's probably just the bearings.

man I have all kinds of problems.

Cant shift to 3rd at 6500 rpm or higher, the clutch travel keeps moving, sometimes it drops so low that it sticks and grates when shifting to 2nd, then sometimes its fine.

Now its started making a constant noise, I need to get another one so I can pull this one down and fix.

That clutch travel issue is probably the cable binding - either lube it or, if it's frayed, replace it - the third gear problem sounds like a worn synchro, but that is quite unusual - it's usually second that goes. Constant noise is most likely the bearings.

There's a guy on eBay sells a rebuild kit with all the seals, bearings & synchros - the rebuild shouldn't take more than a couple of days if you have the stuff on hand.

You're welcome - you can also give the guys at Simpson Motors over in Barbados a call - my experience is that they have stuff in stock, but can be quite pricey

right, after much thought, ive decided to go the way of Carbs, twin 45 sidedraught carbs. easier to tune, cheaper to get.

I think i will make more power like that.

The cost to do EFI thing would be pretty high, I woulda love to do it but I have to scale back my cost (the wifey is pregnant, found out only recently :D ) anyway, i will still post progress with pics and Dyno charts.

Im pretty excited about this project, I love the sound of twin sidedraught carbs, fuel consumption is not much of an issue for me since the car isnt used for very long distances during the week.

Ive been searching the site but cant seem to find too many suppliers of intake manifolds for carbs, anyone knows of a good supplier?

Take a look at this post. I don't know if they're still available.

You may run into a problem with the location of the brake servo and those webers.

Im very happy to say, I got my carbs and intake manifold today.

I got a pair of Mikuni sidedraught carbs ( 44mm ) and an intake manifold for the GTI engine. The manifold is angled so that the brake master cylinder doesnt get in the way.

Will post some pics later. Im getting a pair of cams too but need to check the spec on it before I buy it, dont really want to go too hot on the cams although I can go much hotter with carbs than EFI. All the stuff Im getting came off a race car that had engine parts from the UK.

i would just like to add my two cents. im using suprfly's 210/340 grind cams in my swift. i was originally using these cams with a toms chip and put down just over 100 hp at the wheels. with proper dyno tuning the car is now making 115 hp at the wheels at around 9000 rpm. so thats around 130-5 crank hp. the car is very quick, i did the 1/4 mile in 14.84 @ 93.89 mph. this is with the stock fuel injection system in place. so your twin carb setup with the right tuning along with suprflys 210/340 grind will get you some pretty impressive results, i think...

nope, no mods to the cam gears cams are installed straight up. tuner told me that there is most likely not much gain to be made and the possibility of cam gears slipping could destroy the motor.

Hey Caarlo,

Can you supply a 4.39 crownwheel and pinion for a 1993 GTI ???


I would be ineterested in knowing the cost. My gearbox is down right now and I need a new crownwheel and pinion.
