Tada's GReeeeN Lupo GTI - Last update 1.11.2014

Recommended Posts

So all Lupo GTI 6 speed gearboxes (GVX, FUT and so on) are based on the bigger Polo 02T gearbox. The maine case, diff and gear design are the same as in a 5 speed 02T. 02T is the name of the family of the gearboxes and the three letter code, is what differentiate these gearboxes (in term of ratios and stuff). The main difference is fifth and sixth gear and the back case. So, 02T and 02U are almost the same. For you to belive me, i have installed in my 9N Polo a 6 speed FUT from a 2003 GTI, and is 100% plug and play. I've studied and the GTI gearboxes have the best gearing of all these 6 speed boxes, you only need a shorter ration final drive. I'm not sure about this info and it has to be checked and see if it fits, but the 1.2 6v 9N has a 02T with a 4.4 or 4.5:1 final drive, as opposed to our 4.19:1 ratios. Don't search for 12v gearbox, because that also has 4.19:1 ratios. Good luck!

What's the bellhousing flange bolt pattern like? Would it fit other engines...?

So did a shakedown, and with the car revving to 8,000 rpm, I really need shorter gears. 

Anyone know if there's any matching gears or a final gear with a 4.5+ ratio?

Quaife do a gear kit I believe. 

Edit: Not for the 02T, but other variations of the 02 box. Not sure if these would fit. Also no CWP listed so you'd be stuck with the standard FD.

I had a third gear replaced by a vag monkey and we used parts from the Scirocco range of 02t boxes.

Wow, that is some amazing info, thanks so much for sharing!!

I also assumed that the GVX/FUT had the best gearing, and that getting a 4.5+ final drive was the desired route.  Will be on a search for that coveted 1.2L 6V 9N gearbox!! :D

Yeah thanks, I looked at Quaife too, but I think I need a new final drive from a 02T.

Thanks, for now I'm on a search for a shorter final drive.
