so Im trying to plan ahead incase my 020 tranny takes a **** on me with my project im doing. Im wondering whats the best tranny to use that will bolt up to a 18t and withstand 300-350hp with ease!
Please anyone chim in on what you think. I know this stuff has been posted before I just wanted to do it again.

And also this needs to fit in a A1 Rabbit GTi. So if there is a certain tranny thats easier and strong enough please let me know!
I know the 02j and the o2m and o2a are in the picture. But which aids more strenght and has an edge for making it easier to put in a rabbit?
Thanx in advance!

Re: which to use? (1.8TRabbit)

300-3500 Bhp wow that's a goal!!!

I have been running both the 02A and 02J with about 350 Bhp for the past year. I broke a couple 02As but I think they where pretty used up before i got a hold of them.
02A will probably be cheaper to find and will bolt up well without too much modification ecept of course for the shifter assembly. I just stuffed mine on top of the consol instead of trying to make it all stock looking. I actually like it better cause the shifter is much closer.
You can see it in this pic...
