Re: ALL 02 5 speed 1.8T owners Question about rpms @ 80mph (20VsilvrGTI)

I'll be sure to pay attention this evening and let you know if no one else does. FYI, we noticed when installing my LSD yestersay that the 02 trannys have a stronger plate inside them then the previous years. I think it's similar to the one found in the VR6. Ask about getting this part put in as well when the tranny is apart.

Well if you're doing 3600rpm at a given speed with a 3.94 then just do the math to get RPM with a 3.65:
3600 * 3.65 / 3.94 = 3335 rpm
Also, there's gearing calculator that has a selection for the '02 GTI which may help you out. Just be sure to change the tire size to something appropriate like 24" instead of the default of 22.8.
