would my GTI benefit from a VR6 gearbox instead of the standard GTI?

if yours is an 8v itl be a rod change an a vr box is cable change so youd need everthing that goes with the box, an the ratios probly wont be right for your engine making it slower with a higher top speed

generaly ppl find boxs with lower ratios that give you realy good pick up but you loose some top end speed, mk1/2 gti boxs are basicly the same an some one on here will know which box code is best suited to your engine..

Yea you'll need to change the flywheel, clutch, pedal box etc. Its not worth the hassle, unless your fitting a VR6 Engine at the same time Ninja
