AGG gearbox code choice.

Post by kevtherev »

I use a standard petrol engine (DG) gearbox on spec diameter wheels and tyres, on my ADY powered hightop.
Is it wrong to assume that the extra power from the Golf engine could be better managed with a) slightly bigger tyres. Or b) a more suitable gearbox.

I know what a) is but what would the answer to b) be?

Thanks.
ADY 2.0L 8V. (Golf GTi MkIII)

Bigger tires will work but only marginally. I have the 5 speed abn gear box and it works really well with the agg. A longer 5th gear would be nice but a return of about 26/28mpg at 70 I’m happy with my brick.

Kev, I ran 5% bigger tyres on mine for a long time.
215/65r16 with a 3H box, it was a neat perfect setup.
