G60 - Which Gearbox/Clutch

2 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

 

Just picked up a G60 from a Rallye and will be putting it into my early mk2 driver.

 

Its meant to be running about 220bhp, which gear box/clutch should I be looking for? Would a standard G60 box be ok with the extra power and are there adapters which will allow me to keep rod change with my shifter and a mechanical clutch change so I don't need to change my peddle box?

 

Its also running a lightened G60 fly wheel - will this limit down the choices of gear box as i'd rather not swap that out for something else?

 

tia

Jim

Lightened flywheel won't affect clutch choice, and shouldn't affect gearbox choice, any more than a standard flywheel would.  All it does is allow the engine to spin up through the revs (and consequently back down again!) a bit quicker than standard... the only downside to this is that you may find it a little less smooth on idle (there's less inertia keeping the engine spinning smoothly) which can also mean that it may want to stall when coming to a stop, especially from highish revs... you soon get used to it though, and it does help!

Unless you're thinking of going Turbo and silly power, a standard Corrado VR6 clutch (SACHS preferably!) will do perfectly for you, and is relatively cheap too...  That's what I ran in my 250bhp Corrado G60 with no issues whatsoever.... :)


There was a SEAT that had a cable version of the G60 box, so there is are parts available to convert a standard G60 box to cable change...  As for the rod-change, I honestly don't know... as Golf G60s were cable change, it shouldn't be that much of a hassle swapping the rod change over to a cable change setup, which opens up using quite a few gearboxes for you.... (I think it's a CTN code box which is the sought after one, as it has good gear ratios for a modded G60 in a Golf or Corrado, then stick a TDI 5th in it for higher top speed and lower motorway cruising revs.... )
