Well the inevitable happened last night, I woke up this morning and there was a puddle of gear lube under the car. The C still drives but whines real bad and clicks and clunks on and on. Something different broke in the trans, something I have yet to experience.
Any way waht i'm trying to say is hows Kraftswerk? I've alway thought of them as pretty good, but now that I think of it I haven't heard any stories of them, good or bad.
I figured I want a 6 speed, Peloqin, and 3.94 final drive. If any one wants to sell me an similarly built trans, gimme a holla.

No way Biggs, you're going for the gusto??
Also, keep an eye out for me for an 85-92 4-door Golf for less than $500, doesn't have to run, just want a decent body. My dad sold my Camaro, the guy is picking it up on Sunday.

Mr. Biggs....who left you died and left you as Ronald Isley??

Awww, I just missed one like 2 wks ago. A trade in at Gambacorta, 91 dark grey, no 5th gear. I passed on it cause I didn't need another dub that needs work.

Re: Kraftswerks Transmissions (CorradoKidd)

you might want to call up adirondack, wwwgermanautoparts.com as they usually have a good price on trannys
Search around the forums and you might find a good deal on a quaife. is the 20% still on at auto tech?
just to be a wise ass this didn't happen in as cool a way that the axle did, did it? If so I want to see the video

Dude, this is whatcha gotta do...
Remove the speedo sensor and stick a 1" hose into the hole. Tap the other end of the hose onto a bucket filled with some cheap ass tranny fluid. Viola! You can now drive your car as it leaks!

If you need help tossing on that tranny, give a brutha a holler.

Re: Kraftswerks Transmissions (need_a_VR6)

I like paul's idea

Frank, believe it or not, I've been driving the car kind of easy the past few weeks, so I don't know what happened, but I knew something wasn't right during my drive home last night.

Also how do I get ahold of Kraftswerk? Their websit doesn't have their #. I would call Adirondack (excelent souce for factory parts IMO) but I want a worked tranny.

Re: Kraftswerks Transmissions (onequickg60)

Oooohh! Ooohh! Me, me! I'm in! But I need one before then, unless we can get a really, reallyyyyyyyy, awesome price, then I might be forced to drive my 89 16V GTI around for the winter.

Here's the number for Kraftwerks - (909) 926-9636
I've had one of their 5-speeds in my C for about a year with no complaints at all. Give them a call.
