I've driven a Mk2 swapped 2.8 Vr6, I can only imagine what your car is like. Must be a beast. I think you're expecting too much out of that 02J. From what I'm seeing a stock 3.6 is putting out 300hp, with some tuning you're putting out more. The best thing to do is probably figure out what tranny the 3.6 used to use and use that, since it would be built to handle it. I found this online.

dame she sure is expensive dame near more than my car any cheaper options lol do u think a built o2j work or no
I'm pretty sure a 02j was never mated to a 300hp engine. Maybe somebody could build one that would take the power. You'll have to look around. A built tranny seems like it would cost more than a stock tranny? But my son is saying they only put 3.6 Vr6's in Porsche's. So that's probably not cheap either?

Take a look at this link. And yes, that's probably an uncommon combination that engine in that car. Sounds awesome though!

Ya she is a riot she only is like 2100 pounds Or 940 kilos for u brits ya, I’m trying to look for a built o2j now i still don’t know what year the motor is, oh and I’m pretty sure they put the 6.3 Is in the bigger Touareg i might be wrong tho, and to be honest i think its all the torque is What shredded the o2j

My first watercooled VW was a 1985 2 door Golf, Dark Blue. Had all the Neuspeed sway bars underneath, upper strut bar and Corrado springs with Bilstein HD struts. Short shifter, lightened flywheel, and a 16v clutch and pressure plate. It only had the 1.8L 8v so it wasn't super fast, but handled like a go-cart. So yeah, that light a car with that much power must rip.
In terms of strength tho do you thik a o2m could handle it better or no not, really im Hope that a o2m could fit on a 6.3 i have read its a bit more resilient to power and if so can i get one with a lsd ?

Give this a read. Somebody probably makes a LSD for about any tranny you would want to use. Personally I don't have any experience with the 02M. I think my last three manual cars have/had the 02J and my Golf R has the DSG.
