Well last weekend i saw somwone i know run [email protected] and then when he went to back it up he blew 2 gear on the 020. I will be running GT30R on a 2.0 16v @15-17psi very very soooon! So what are the options for adding straight to the gears? Thanks

Kraftwerks has a kit for the 020, Quaife has a setup too along with a 6-spd conversion. Get a hold of Lugnuts, he runs one of the Kraftswerks trannies if I am correct.

Re: Best way to add straight to 020 gear (VW blk Jetta3)

I really don't like the cable shift, and my friend stripped 3rd gear twice on his 274whp 255ft/lbs mk4 golf, so really not convince about the whole 02A tranny being stronger.

Re: Best way to add straight to 020 gear (euroroccoT)

us2ba4dr rubs a Kraftswerk straight cut gear tranny. ran 11's on it. They will build i should say he will build it for about 3000-4000 and will take 6 months to do. All the parts are ordered in as the tranny order is placed. More than likely i will go this route or the g60 but the gears are awfully short in 1 and 2nd for my likeing.
just to let you know.

Re: Best way to add straight to 020 gear (euroroccoT)

From everything I have read, the weakest part of an 020 is the diff (as you know). Since you have a Peloquin, the next weakest part will be the inner splines on the gears themselves. An aftermarket gear set would probably be the solution, but those are HELLA $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ ...
Thing I hate about the 02A, is that they're over $1000 used, and are not much stronger, so when you do blow one up, you're down $1000, not $300 that the 020 costs ...

From my experience the 020 is really weak it couldnt support the mind blowing 129 whp my jetta put out. and the O2A can handel almost whatever you throw at it as long as its not rediculas numbers. its also how you drive and stuff. like if you burn out all the time your tranny will blow because the diff.

The diff you blew was a stock one right? With the peloquin in there, the weakest link is the gears, and with that regard I have heard that 02A is the same, only it has a stronger stock diff ...

Re: Best way to add straight to 020 gear (Agtronic)

Yeah it was the stock diff not the peloquin, im mostly looking for a place that can add strenght to the gears, i know all about the the pros/cons of 020 vs 02A and i made my choice last year when i chose my 020 with peloquin, is there a shop that specialize in gear strenghtening? so if i want i can take the tranny apart and send the gears?
Thanks

even with cyro treated gears in the o2o, it will still let go if you are making enuff HP( over 250hp)....020 trannies are just not stong enuff

Re: Best way to add straight to 020 gear (euroroccoT)

I think I hold the record for a stock gear 020 trans, I ran [email protected] with one and it ended up lasting 8 other 10 sec passes. also, last year I did three 1.5 sec 60' times on an 020 before finally shattering the 1st gear.
Remember , shock is the easiest way to break parts.
Get a hold of Shaun and see if he can help you out.
