So I have an '01 jetta 2.0 with a 5 speed manual. Does anyone know how much hp an torque the tranny can take before it starts to cause damage. The car has around 135k and I have a K&N cold air intake in the short ram configuration if that's helpful.
You plan on turboing or supercharging?

Probably turbo if i was going to go with forced induction. I know that I shouldn't go much over 6 psi with stock internals. I was planning on putting a magnaflow exhaust system and reprogramming the ecu, I have just heard some places that early mk4 trannys aren't that strong
The tranny should be alright if its a 5 spd as long as youve kept up on maintenence and upgrade your clutchm the main thing is you shouldnt turbo a car with that many miles. You should rebuild the engine first.
