I have a 1984 rabbit diesel with a 4 speed transmission. I want to convert it over to a 5 speed which I have. I did not get any shifter linkages with the tranny. From researching on the internet I found that there is a difference in the shifting components. Can anyone tell me what will work off the 4 speed and what else I would need for the conversion.
You will need the shift selector gate thingy, the shift relay ball, and the actual linkage rods. I've everything but the relay ball. I can it all to you for $50. Let me know. That or go to a junk yard and find a MkI GTi and rape it
Hey i just actually got my 1983 Rabbit diesel changed from 4 speed to 5 speed, unfortunately all i can say is see a mechanic and shell out the cash. Its so worth it tho, my car runs 15 times better!!
it is bolt in.. the only difference is the long dogbone not the one with the pins.... the 5 speed is angled differently and you need the transmission side mount.... thats it....
1983 Rabbit GTi 2.1L aba 16v T4 Turbo my turbo manifold, intake manifold and fuel rail.. cage, real coilovers,
mk2 dash, audi door handles.... much much more.....
I am doing the very thing with an '80 Diesel. I got a complete 5speed conversion kit from Parts Place for $75.00 bucks. Their number is 888 432-3548.
I use a gas tranny from an 02 Golf....
an ACN has a TALL 5th gear.....slow from 45-65mph but beyond that is great for
highway cruising with 185/80/r13 tires gives great economy @ 70-75mph
slow from the roll if youare always in a hurry....other wise CRUISE
Oh, and Resurrected too
Getter done. I may want to convert a 4 speed sometime to a 5 speed.
