View Full Version : Trans upgrade?

08-11-2009, 02:44 PM
About 3 months ago I purchased a B7 A4 2.0T. I have done a few mods since I've had the car. (VMR test pipe, K&N intake, KMD HPFP upgrade, KMD Cam Follower upgrade, Forge DV w./ atmospheric spacer, Revo Stage 2+ ECU Flash)
My 3rd gear is beginning to grind when shifting at high RPM. It is probably a syncro and only going to get worse being as I drive the car pretty hard on the weekends. I obviously want to fix this problem but I would also like to upgrade the trans completely in order to handle the added power of my current mods and future mods. What parts should I look into getting and where can I find them?

I'm sure this has been discussed before so if there is another thread discussing this, please just point me in that direction and i will gladdly follow it.

Thank you in advance...

Have you tried changing the tranny fluid? That would be my first suggestion and will probably buy you some time.

I am actually going to change the fluid this weekend. Hopefully there is no metal flakes in it. Either way I would still like to make it a bit stronger. I plan on doing a BT setup soon and I would like know that my trans is not going to take a dump on me. I know people have said these transmissions can handle the power but with my luck its better safe than sorry.

What do you plan on putting in? If you hav never changed it, its going to make a world of difference. FYI I went with Motul Gear300.
