    Hello all.

    I have joined this site because of the excellent technical data in regards to doing a 5 speed manual conversion on a DSG equipped 2006 TDI.

    I am close to pursuing this conversion but, I would like to hear anyones experience or opinions on their preferred transmission.

    What transmission would you use 6spd or 5spd any specific modifications I should look into for either while I am at it?
    The Jetta will be used as a daily driver and the primary goal is MPG and reliability.

    Thanks

    I have decided at this point, to go with the US market 2010 VW TDI 6 speed. The transmission I'll be seeking is PN 02Q-300-045-A.
    I was hoping someone would say the 5 speed is better because its from the same year, its also cheaper and there are a few 5th gear ratios I have seen online however, everything I have found suggest the 6 speed will provide better engine rpm to speed matching and better fuel mileage. I also noticed the 6 speed has a much larger case around the differential so I am assuming it will be stronger.

    Can I also assume the two output shafts increase strength?

    I am also hoping someone can check these attached gear ratios. I found them on various sites including this one:
