I'll let you know, post August 6th.
I got my turbo reconditioned at the same time as new box so that’s probably why I didn’t notice. The reconditioned turbo and a new map restored low end torque that I’d gotten used to not having.For me this is the case quick start in 1st is harder than my original 90 box, thought it was my turbo

Yes exactly this - Merlin is getting a PTW, so as per the calcs in post 194, it looks like I will have to rev well past 2600 RPM to change up from 1st to 2nd just to have the revs land at 1400 in 2nd; which it will probably pull OK in that gear if I'm not trying to accelerate hard - This is what's prompting the question.For what gearbox and with what engine are you asking? Im guessing you mean PTW with 90 (ATL)?
Hi Tom,Morning all,
This is something I am very interested in having done in time. I have a 2002 (52) 1.4 TDI AMF.
After reading all the posts regarding the MYP gearbox can someone confirm which starter motor I need to obtain or if indeed the standard starter motor works. I’d no doubt ask @chumsofmanutd to do this work for me as this is well beyond my capabilities.
If anyone thinks this can be done on a driveway in a few hours I’d happily travel to you for you to complete it once I have the parts required. Of course paying for your time.
I’m constantly looking for a decent priced MYP gearbox on websites and when I get near a beakers yard. It would be good to obtain all the parts before I have this done.
Evening David,Just to highlight to subscribers / readers of this thread regarding gearbox oil to use in the six speeds:
Redline MT-LV is the one to go for if you don’t mind paying a little extra over the standard VAG oil, in exchange for a much better quality gear change (and the six speed already has a nicer change than the diesel 5 speed, apparently), plus a minor fuel efficiency benefit.
It was Opie Oils who put me onto this stuff for this application and I’m now running it in both my VAG diesel six speed vehicles!
With your instructions it was easy to find the blind for the speed sensor/cableHello there,
After chatting to Rob at WOM he gave me an idea of where the speed cable is located on the gearbox.
I then started to feel around (from the top of the car) in that area to find a cable exiting from the picture above.
It’s tight to get to but all I could feel in that area just a knurled bolt/cap, no cable coming from it. Marcus also had a feel around when I dropped off the MYP gearbox to WOM. His findings were the same so guess my 2002 (52) AMF does not have the speed sensor cable fitted.

On the pictures below one can see how the blind was looking on my 2002 AMF and wifes 2005 BHC.
With the skid plate off, it was easy to have a good look at the blind from below. Through the engine room it was limited access I would say....

Since my 2002 AMF do not have speed wire nor a speed sensor from the diff.
Can I then take that my instrument get speed signal from the ABS unit ?
Hi again Paul,Another check is the model number of the abs unit. The 20 as the gearbox speedo sensor the 60 uses the abs for the speedo
