I just purchased a used 99 GLS and coming from a 90 Jetta Coupe and 03 GLI... this motor seems to rev a lot slower.

It also seems to hold revs FAR longer. When I shift from 1-2, I end up having to slow my shift down, because it takes so long for the RPMs to drop down to proper levels to engage 2nd.

Could I just be used to the close-ratio 6-speed in the GLI? If so, how does this explain that it seems noticeably slower than the Coupe?

No you cannot use a Jetta tranny, you have to use one that mates to a longitudinal engine.
Alex.. I wasn't saying I wanted to install it... I know it won't fit... I was just saying that I'm probably used to the feel of the GLI and how it revs with the 6-speed.

Did the lightened flywheel introduce any other problems, like chatter, vibrations, etc? I've heard good and bad things about lightened flywheels on our car, and I wouldn't want to have a chattering transmission everytime I engage a gear.

And you can honestly say that there is a big difference, and that it revs faster/drops revs quicker?

Steve-

I'd eventually like to get a lighter flywheel, but I've already got a underdriven (slightly) crank pully, I heard you shouldn't do both mods.

Any insight?
