      Nice work

      I'm about to do 02m in a MK2 1.8T

      Looks like more work than I thought.

      I recently installed an o2m in my mk3. I put a peliquin diff with a fx700. The trans feel good,shifts great. with about 100 miles on the setup im getting a little concerned about the temp of the trans.I cant tell if the heat is coming from the trans itself or the radiator is heating it up. just wondering if anybody else has this concern?

      Now I regret selling my A2 VR6 coupe. A 6 speed would have made that car a beast.

      Seems like a pretty cost efficient swap. How's the gearing compared to stock or even a BBM 6 speed?

      I'm definitely going to be doing this to my new VR coupe.

      Does anybody know if I can adapt or match a 02Q gearbox to a 12v VR6? Most likely the 02M fits....

      I'm going to try going back to the mk3 tstat housing (aluminum) and get a short shifter. I believe the combination of the two will allow some more room.

      The reason I went with the mk4 tstat housing was due to shifting mechanism coming in contact with the housing or related hose. That has meant custom hoses (no it's not as simple as using a mk4 upper hose).
      So, in an effort to get back to mk3 stock hoses I'm trying a mk3 aluminum tstat housing with short shifter.

      My plan is to report back on this in less than a month. Will take lots of pics...

      Came across some 02m conversion parts that I was not familiar with. Don't know if these improve/simplify the mounting of the the transmission any. The main trans mount seems a little more structurally reinforced. What are your thoughts?

      Doesn't look much different than the dutchdubs mount I've got. But what's the extra piece?

      The Driveshaft Shop keeps these on the shelf now, at least for the mk3 VR6 o2m.
      So, no need to stress-just buy em!

      You the 02m guru I was hoping you would school me. I really have no clue what that second mount/bracket is all about. The other thing that caught my attention was the two ribs welded to the main trans mount. I was not aware the Dutchdubs, United or others had that reinforcement.


      You mentioned coolant flange, is the cast piece any smaller in footprint than the stock plastic? I understand you are reducing travel with the short shifter but surprised that the cast coolant flange would make any difference.

      I'm sorry for the confusion on the coolant flange.
      There is really only ONE reason I'm going to the cast coolant flange vs OEM plastic: if it needs modification.
      For example: some R32 guys are buying the mk3 cast housing because it's not available for their mk4 car yet. What a couple of them are doing is cutting the one outlet a bit shorter to allow some space.

      Another R user noted that it didn't look like he needed to modify anything to clear the o2m linkage.
      When I asked, he showed me his short shifter kit, which is much less bulky than the OEM o2m linkage.
      The Ahhhhh hah! moment had arrived! I may very well be able to go back to the OEM mk3 housing if combined with a short shifter made by dieselgeek, which will now allow me to get back to my OEM cooling system hoses (my biggest nightmare has been the non-OEM look of cutting hoses and using copper elbows and such!). Thank god.

      Anyway,
      I'll modify THIS post with a pic of that short shifter and who makes it.

      Edit: link to short shifter
      http://www.dieselgeek.com/mobile/pro...ss-sigma6.htm=

      And a picture, cast housing and short shifter just barely clears the housing. Wonder if I could cut that stud down a tad and go with a lower profile nut (see red marks):


      Updated. So in a week or so I'll order these two items and see where that gets me!
