    hi m8

    drop vag-hag a PM - im sure he has upgraded his gb internals to cope with his VRT output

    my VR is NA, slightly modded to 210 horses - i put HiSpec 4 pots on mine rather than 288's as once you allow for the 288's to be refurb'd etc the cost was fairly close
    Bramber metallic VR6 bring on the grins as the VR sings!!!!

    I’m not much use regarding spec of my gb. Jon Malik said it was strong so I bought it!
    95 Mystic Blue Storm - It's bound to cause disappointment.

    02j's have their weaknesses, plastic bearing cages opposed to 02a's metal versions, weaker syncro rings, diesel gear cogs have finer pitched teeth than the 02a versions, dubious cast metal output shaft bearing carrier opposed to the older pressed metal one fitted to the 02a.. I've opened and shut loads of both type of 'boxs and in some ways it seems that Vw was going backwards instead of forwards with the 02j.
    On my turbo 16v 'box I fitted a Peloquin LSD, old version bearing carrier, metal pinion brace, inner bearing that supports the output shaft has a metal cage and I used the older style 02a syncro hubs and rings.
    02m's are weak in certain area too, plus a load of work to fit too compared.
    The last mod I'd like to do is use the grease plates that effectively seal the inner driveshaft CV joint's horrid, black grease within the cup so when you remove the shaft, you don't risk getting the bloody stuff all over the place, these clip on covers were used on the 02m driveshafts that are 100mm, opposed to the smaller 02a joints.
    Fit a reinforced clutch operating fork, along with a decent updated clutch too.

    Rotrex bracket

    I'm trying to test fit my rotrex bracket but am worried it's fouling the fuel rail and alternator pulley on idler pulley (but I think I can move that)

    Am I being overly cautious?
