    The final drive ratio given for the Mk4 pumpe duse transmission is incorrect. This information likely comes from either the Bently manual update or some of the VW info, all of which are incorrect. If this was the correct final drive, at 3000RPM in 5th gear the vehicle would be traveling at 114 kph (70 mph). I own one of these vehicles and this is easily demonstrated to not be the case. My vehicle travels at 142 kph (88 mph) under these conditions.

    This transmission is the EUH variant of the 02J transmission. This transmission has the following characteristics:
    Final 3.389
    1st 3.778
    2nd 2.063
    3rd 1.348
    4th 0.967
    5th 0.744

    Please correct the corresponding information in the how-to.
