noticed my gearbox was leaking 2 weeks ago so i removed my gearbox to day to sort gearbox oil leak and noticed ive cracked my gearbox so now looking at upgrades.... my car is running 300 bhp so looking at getting at what i can do to make the transmission stronger? ive heard a lot of good stuff about wavelock diffs so looking at that but not sure if an uprated gearkit would help with the power which could go up once ive uprated my con rods...... my car is used daily so dont want to make it undriveable though

many thanks for any advice

[quote user="Chris."]3rd gear is the weakest....so uprating diff will have no benefit to strength.

There is a 6speed option, 02M I think. I think the VW golf 6speeds are 02J and pretty short gears.

Personally, id find another 5speed or if crack is repairable....get it welded.[/quote] Hi mate im only adding an uprated diff in 2 help with grip. im not 2 keen on a 6 speed due 2 the parts needed 2 be changed and the shorter gears
