Default MR 6spd

The MR 6spd requires you to use a 5spd rear diff. So, my question is: what driveshaft do I use? 6spd or 5spd?

You need a 6 Speed Drive Shaft.


I am still using the 5 speed shaft in my car... it's a little bit too short (like a half inch) but I haven't noticed any problems with it. I drove back and forth to Long Island from MD a couple times, no issues

yeah if your motor mounts are really good you can get away with either shaft in either car. With a 6 speed shaft in a 5 speed car there is only about .75" of depth the shaft can slide in the case, so I wouldn't run that way without poly or solid front/rear mounts.

Good info Chris. I have a motor plate in one of mt TT's and solid's in the car w/the new MR 6spd. I mainly asked because I have a lead on a 2-piece D/S but it's for a 5spd and I wanted to make sure it would work.

I don't know if it is accurate or not, but I view the spline engagement similar to threads. If you have 1 diameter of the shaft worth of spline engagement it is probably as strong as it is going to get.

That's true. I think I'll just pick up the D/S and we shall see what the results are.
