I know I dont have any leaks. I have checked, the shop checked.

I do believe that 2nd gear will not hold. 1st is good, shift to second is good until about 3000rpm...then the rpms skyrocket...almost like I am revving in neutral and the car doesnt go any faster. 3rd, 4th, and 5th are all fine.

If I take it easy in 2nd, its ok. Anything more than 2/3 throttel...fuhghettaboutit. WOndering if its the trans or the clutch. Trans has 44k miles on it. Clutch has about 2k miles on it.

Maybe it's the pressure plate? A bad clutch slips in all gears not just one

Did you change the master and slave? Think one of the 2 is leaking, hope is the master, try a good bleeding first to rule out air in the line.

Mother - i took the car back to the shop and had them rebleed everything. However, I DID just change my brakes. Maybe I didnt get a good bleed on them. I will have a shop rebleed everything for me this weekend. The slave was changed - the one that spec sent me broke on the first drive out of the shop. Cost me double labor (thanks spec). It has an OEM unit in there now...brand new.

Update: the car will no longer hold boost in any gear. Anything above 3k with any kind of boost and the rpms just sky rocket and the car stops pulling. Oh joy.

You need to break it in. Not boosting around with a new clutch. You have either glazed it, maybe ruined it, or it might start catching after the break in. I know a friends clutch slipped in his jetta since install, then around 600 miles it started grabbing and holding.

The clutch has over 1000 miles on it. Then I added the turbo kit. The clutch is rated to 280ftlbs of torque. The FSWERKS stage 2 kit makes more torque than that (not much) at the flywheel. Maybe the clutch just isnt strong enough.

For the first several hundred miles, all street driving. Nothing wide open until about 400 miles on it. I have said there was something wrong with the clutch since the day it was installed. The shop agreed, but thought it just might be 'grippy' - I couldnt afford to have it yanked out for a third time.
