Transmission belhousing swap? 5mtvr6-6mt1.8t

Postby goLucky on Mar Tue 26, 2013 5:12 pm

Ok, looking for some real knowledge:

Can I swap bellhousings/internals to use a 6mt from a 1.8t in my vr6 5speed. Both are mk4 era (think they call the tt's 1st gen or something)? I have heard that this is possible, but think that my sources may have been speculating rather than basing this on any real experience.

Thanks Leif

I think the 1.8t's had the 02J 5 speed and the VR6 had the 02M 6 speed. So you will need to source an 02M tranny. The 02M will bolt right up to your VR.

It is an audi tt quatro 6 speed. If it is possible I would like to put my 5speed vr bellhousing on it and run it with the rear driveshaft absent until I can do the haladex rear swap. I didn't look at the stamp on the TT trans so I'm not even exactly sure what it is maybe an 02a?

02A and 02J can swap 4 cyl to 6cyl bells, 02M is all new, will not work.

from what i can tell, you want to use the gearing etc, from a 6sp quattro (haldex) with the VR6 bell housing, and that will not work.

If you found a non AWD 6sp, i.e. from a 20th anniversary or GLI that would swap with your Vr6 bell.

FWIW 02M came in both 4 cyl (TT) and 6 cyl (nicer later TT) those should swap each other as its the same platform.

There are 02M FWD trans as well, but not sure what they come in.

VR6 definatly used 02J trans. if its a 12v

It IS 02m if you have a 24V

Thanks for the good info, it seemed like if it was that simple way more people would have already done it.
