Weddle Industries has recently added two new overdrive ratios to their extensive lineup of high performance 091 and 094 Vanagon gears. If you are looking to reduce engine RPM at highway speeds, you now have five different options to choose from:
0.82 3.5% RPM reduction*
0.77 9.4% RPM reduction*
0.75 (NEW) 11.8% RPM reduction*
0.73 (NEW) 14.1% RPM reduction*
0.70 17.6% RPM reduction*
Precision profile grinding: All Weddle 091 and 094 gear sets are now being manufactured using a process called "Profile Grinding", which is a huge leap forward in gear manufacturing technology. What separates these gears from the previous generation of hobbed gears is their extremely precise gear tooth geometry. Grinding the final gear tooth form after heat treat eliminates imperfections and/or distortions left over from the gear hobbing, machining, and heat treatment processes. The result is a perfect tooth form every time.
Weddle’s use of proprietary spec gear material, computer aided tooth form design, precision manufacturing, de-burring, shot-peening, and now profile grinding, results in gears that run quieter, last longer, and have nearly unbeatable strength and fatigue resistance.

*Percentage reduction in RPM vs. the stock VW .85 4th gear ratio. Some earlier transaxles came with a .88 4th gear, in which case the RPM reduction would be greater.
