I was wonder if anyone has every seen a 6 speed manual trans from. 3.2 Audi TT swap in to the mkv 3.2 R32 any info is greatly appreciated as I would like to do this myself thanks in advanced
The R32 ECU's cannot be recoded from auto to manual. You need to get a manual ecu, or get some serious tuner to sort it out.
I could NOT load manual software onto a DSG ECU in the mk5 R32 ecu I used in a conversion, either. I could write it, but it didn't allow starting or running and screw up the fans and all sorts. I ended up buying one brand new, and then found a second hand one as well.
You can use either of the MK4 R32 or MK5 R32 manual transmissions. I don't know what they sold in the US, but the TT with the BUB or BDB 3.2 will be MK5 based. If you fit that trans (02Q), it's all bolt up.
IF you find a MK4 R32 or 2.8 4motion type trans (02M), you can also use it - you need the flywheel matching the transmission, and you need the driveshafts for the front too, but you'll have to install MK5 outer CV joints - they fit right on. This is what I've done in my Touran R32, which is based on a MK5 chassis.
You also have to wire in a clutch switch, code all other relevant modules for manual, and change one wire that used to go to the DSG, earth it to allow the starter to run (From Onboard Power Supply module - Central electronincs).
the automatic type engine ECU will have a fault code for a missing TCU, and because of that code, the ABS module will have a "sympathy" code... so you'll have both lights on...
