New member here, picked up a 2019 mt couple of weeks ago and just switched out the clutch line and put in the ecs bleeder block. This is a different clutch completely, getting off a stop on first gear is night and day, every shift is so clean.
Also did the HD clutch stop mod so this is like a new car all over again.

get a dogbone insert like 034 upper with APR lower. It transforms it yet again ;)

So after the new clutch line and bleeder block the clutch engagement is very natural but I hear a diesel engine like whirring noise if I am disengaging the clutch and the rpms are between 3-4k. Is this what the swirl delay valve we in place for ?
I don't get it if the rpms are above 4500 when disengaging or below 3k ( 1->2)

no the swirl valve is specifically to force a semi-controlled engagement for inexperienced manual drivers.

Without reading through 20 pages worth in this thread I'd like to give a shoutout to Boomba Transmission Shifter Adapter. I put this bad boy in today and man, I'm in awe at how much a simple little piece changed the driving experience. I LOVE IT. Short shifts and very firm and precise. I've had the car since December so only around 5 months worth but in those 5 months I could say the shifter had long sloppy throws. Very akin to the mk6 (had to short shift that biznatch too). This little piece is like a REQUIREMENT if you are manual. I know there are other options and I'm sure they're just as good but let me say, if you are just stock, GET THIS at least. It's not too expensive, SUPER easy install (just don't drop the shift linkage clip, rofl) and you're on your way in around 10 minutes.

Does this fit the 2019 7.5 also? the maperformance website does not list it when I set the car to 7.5
There's no difference in the Mk7 and Mk7.5 manual transmissions, you can use any short shifter, bushings, brackets, etc that fit any Mk7 car.

You will need a universal holder as well. These come in three different sizes from ProClip, depending on the size of your phone of course.

I have put these in all three of the Golfs I own. Over-built, cost too much, worth every cent IMO. :)

Edit: And obviously, you can run a shorty cable to the phone so you can used Android Auto or Carplay without issue.

I love my ProClip mount. Much better than anything else I have used.
