  4. 102 Gearbox into a 88

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hi all, Due to my "larger clutch" (non DMF and larger size from Central VW) slipping i think i will have to change gearboxes to one out of a 102 model. Does anyone have any information if it will be a straight swap? I am thinking drive shafts, starter motor etc.... Also, am i right in saying...

  9. PP Stats

    Engine & Gearbox
    Project Power has been a major force in the T4 movement, and following on from Trumpcard Trivia I thought it would be interesting to see how the figures stacked up for the different starting points i.e. the TDI 102 and the TDI 88. So, using the data from the TDI as a general starting point...
