I have SOLD 17,500 of these and I bet you have never seen one of these. Right?

Crazy to think that after 9 years of selling these, we have sold over 17,500 in 38 countries! WoW!!! I bet you have never seen one and more than likely, your head will explode when I show it to you. What am I talking about? Great question.


There is a wing nut that when functioning at it best, is roughly a FIVE out TEN experience. This original nut, in theory, would allow the VW owner to adjust his clutch feel to get the right amount of pedal to disengage the clutch. But most of the time...........

Anytime you rebuild/update/upgrade your transaxle, it never comes with oil in it. Make sure you add 90 wt after it is installed. It would be wise to update the trans mounts, nose cone seal and shift coupler/bushing if equipped.

The PRO's Recommendations:
  • Billet Bearing Caps make the job easy
  • The install kit comes with seal kits, hardware, axle nuts and seal races. Make sure every box is checked when doing a quality installation.
*Disc Brakes are optional
