So, I’m looking at buying a 2000 6n2, 1.0 mpi. Apparently it “needs a new gearbox” but have also been told “it was stuck in gear, and could be a selector issue”. Now, this car will be a track car (keeping the 1.0 mpi) and potentially a daily (whilst my T4 gets some much needed loving). So what gearbox would be best? I am assuming the gear ratios are different from the 1.0 to the 1.4? Will a diesel gearbox fit - and are there any benefits, or boxes to avoid? Anywhere I can find the ratios of the 6n2 boxes? Many thanks in advance, pie
So I saw a thread on Club Gti devoted to weight saving and thought I would get one started on here for anyone track prepping or making a mk2 racecar. il be adding pictures of where I have managed to save weight on the shell and panels and I will be adding panel weights before and after and try to add weights of material removed from specific places to give an idea of how much was saved. hopefully this can go in the FAQ so please don't ask questions in this thread to save spam and just add your information and pictures so to begin I've been lightening my panels. here are some weights to get this started will add pics in the next few days Mk2 Door Complete Door 18kg (with glass, seals, handle, lock, electric window kit) Stripped Door 12kg lightened stripped door 9kg IMG_4327 by pjdirtjumper, on Flickr IMG_4328 by pjdirtjumper, on Flickr IMG_4329 by pjdirtjumper, on Flickr IMG_4385 by pjdirtjumper, on Flickr Breadvan Boot Complete Boot 14.4kg (minus Wiper) (with Glass, seal, lock, catch, wiper motor, trim panel) IMG_4361 by pjdirtjumper, on Flickr Stripped Boot 8.5kg IMG_4381 by pjdirtjumper, on Flickr Lightened Stripped Boot 7.5kg so far more lightening (drilling) to do IMG_4391 by pjdirtjumper, on Flickr IMG_4392 by pjdirtjumper, on Flickr IMG_4393 by pjdirtjumper, on Flickr IMG_4395 by pjdirtjumper, on Flickr Obviously there is also Poly Carbonate windows I think these are roughly half the weight of glass at most there are also a lot of unneeded brackets and excess metal around inside the car too especially if you are tracking it or going full racecar so these can be removed and il get a lot of pictures added of these
