It's been said many times before, but want to add that the DieselGeek Sigma 6 shifter kit is absolute perfection incarnate. Just installed mine, and it was the last piece in making the 6MT just right. Also did the delay valve removal, clutch pedal stop, and return spring removal.
THIS. Pair it with a nice shift knob and extender and you have something that feels really nice and confident.
I will definitely back up what you said about the shift knob. The DG Sigma 6 was great but definitely felt it was missing something with the stock knob. After a heavyweight shifter that's when it feels great.
I have the Torque Solution bushings. I haven't compared them to any of the brass bushings which may be better, but I think they do the job just fine.Hey guys,
Thoughts/opinions on the Torque Solution shifter cable bushings vs ECS's cable bushings? I'm trying to do these mods on a budget and I was wondering there was any advantage of ECS's ($15 more).
This is some really valuable info in this thread! I am looking to buy a GTI soon and there are a lot more cars in my price range with a manual. I like the idea of the DSG for the popular benefits, but do y'all think these upgrades to the MT with an upgraded clutch would be able to compete with the quickness of the DSG? Sorry if that's a noob question. Just trying to curb my fixation on finding a DSG car with PP. There are more MT's with PP that are decently priced but I don't want to regret going with the "slower" transmission. (Not meant to be rude, just that a lot of people say the MT is slower. Also don't mean to start a VS war between the two. Genuinely curious how an upgraded MT setup compares because I like shifting. Lol)
