Need some help.....
I have a 91 GTI 8v with a G60 swap. Tranny has 120,000 on it. Car currently has the stock 8v Tranny and it is making some "interesting" noises. Always has a gear noise ( for lack of a better word ) and also make a repetitive knocking noise when I am decelerating or coasting but not when I am accelerating or maintaining speed? I am pretty sure that it is not a CV joint ( no getting louder when I turn and it doesn' t sound like it is coming from one side or the other).
My questions are.
1. Could this be the diff?
2. If I am looking at a new tranny ( which I am guessing on ). What should I be looking at? I would rather stick with the cable vs hydro clutch and would probably be doing this myself so the easier the better. Also would like to have all the gearing be a little taller if I am going to be picking up a tranny.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated ( shops to buy from, what to get, etc )
Thanks
