Hey Leon,you can just swap the 5th gear. you don't even have to remove the transmission.
this way you can have your highway gear and all others stay the same.
no coding or anything like that.
Bringing this back front he dead but recently bought a 2010 golf 2.5 with the kpf trans. Long story short the trans is donezo.
So just to clarify, if I can find an Lpu I can directly fit that? While I’m in there I’ll do the clutch and flywheel.
What other things should I get to make it a smooth swap? I’m having a friend that is a mechanic but no experience with vws just want to make sure I’m doing it right the first time.
If you can also elaborate on the slave cylinder that would be great! Thanks so much!
