Re: I have a Q (frankinstyn)

The FF is like a GC 4 speed with an extra gear. The first 4 gears are the same ratio as the GC. Have it in my cabby and it's a find setup. Moves the car along find with the 1.6

Re: I have a Q (crunk masta 08)

FF is a diesel transmission, with a tall final drive and fifth gear. It will let you cruise nice and peacefully on the highway, using little gas. These are commonly installed, when they can be found, into early GTIs after the GTI owner has grown tired of hearing the engine scream loudly at any speed over 50 mph. The FF is not a performance gearbox.

Re: I have a Q (Oilheat)

The FF tranny is not a diesel only transmission. My 81 gas pick up came with a FF tranny brand new.

Re: I have a Q (GTIZRX)

Scirocco, cabriolet, rabbit, Jetta all came with the FF in it's various forms. IIRC the ones made after 1980/06 had the longer 5th gear. My 81 Scirocco had one. Walked all day at 160 km/hr on the Quebecobahn.
quiet too.

yeah i have an ff in my car, it's great for the turbo diesel cause since i have such a short rev range the long gears really help to get you going, the only thing bad is that it has no lsd, talk about one wheel tire fires. well you can get them both spinning if you got skill haha.
