could the VW box really handle all that power???  

ive had two golf GTI'S and always had trouble with the box's!! and i dont have a heavy right foot either :lol:

We're talking about the O2J box off the Golf 1.8T, syncro's are abit slow but do take alot of punishment.

You could go t extent of having bigger bearings machined into the JB3 box and shot peen all the gears to make it stronger.

Hi mate
can you show me some pics of this bearing, and how much stronger the gear box will be?
