    Ideally you want a 02b DUJ box from a 88bhp 2.5 tdi, which is the longest t4 box you can get (apparently). Or fit a 6 speed conversion.
    The problem with the 6th speed conversion is if liken me you have the .651 5th, you gain nothing at the top end as that's the ratio they use for 6th. Along with no change of the final drive all that it's good for (as far as I'm concerned) is removing the gap between 4th and 5th.

    I've learned to deal with it and changed my driving style accordingly. Cheaper than a 1k+ mod and for that kind of money if rather spend a bit more and have the entire box rebuilt using better suited ratios across the board.

    At least with the DUJ, there's a longer final drive. So that all gears (including the modded 5th) affected.

    I'm not sure that 6th gear conversion info it quite right Law...

    That's for the 02G boxes. If I recall correctly; the 6th for 02B boxes aren't that long (especially my box)...
