      Absolutely interested! Any chance you'd write it up and post it here for all interested parties?

      Yes post up the details,I plan to do this whenever my CC's Automatic sneezes wrong. 2008 TT VR was what I had planned to use as a donor for the drivetrain and then just CC manual pieces for the other interior and manual bits. Any coding issues or unique driving issues?

      Here is what he posted in the B6 forum:

As of right now I have a parking brake fault, abs light (due to parking brake fault I believe) and an airbag light (bad sensor under the passenger seat) but the car is now my daily driver and is a blast to drive!! ?

      Here is a complete parts list
      -2004 r32 transmission
      -2004 r32 flywheel and clutch
      -2004 r32 starter
      -mk5 gti shifter box and cables
      -b6 passat 6 speed shift knob and boot
      -mk5 clutch pedal and master
      -clutch line (I used a braided universal line)
      -mk5 brake pedal (only need the pedal itself, not the bracket)
      - (2) b6 passat 2.0 manual LF axles...

      i made an axle spacer so I can use the same axle on both sides because I had trouble locating a RF axle to fit. I think a 2012 R axle will work but I could not verify a length and they cost $450. But the spacer was the cheaper route and makes buying a replacement axle easy and cheap.
      The ecu will need to be sent somewhere to have the automatic parts of it erased and the immo deleted. And then it will need coded for the manual trans via VCDS.
      The factory cluster can stay and recoded for a manual trans as well.
      You will have to make a custum transmission mount for the drivers side.
      And I had to run a couple wires to run the starter which was very simple to do. I'll add some pics as I get time.

      No issues so far. I drive it about 100 miles every day. I am fighting an EPB fault but it was present before the swap. Parking brake button dodnt fix it so the EPB module is next..VERY fun car to drive!! I'm sure the exhaust and uni tune play a part in that as well. Lol

      Does it over rev when you shift from gear to gear while driving hard? Did you install a clutch switch?

    12. 01-18-2018 08:17 PM #10
      It has the typical vw rev float. But nothing abnormal because it was swapped. And as of right now I just have an always grounded relay to run the starter. When I get some free time I will wire the ground wire up to the clutch pedal switch. I work 2 jobs (operations specialist for a natural gas pipeline co, and running my shop) along with raising a family, so my free time is minimal. Haha

      Sick someone did it, eventually I'm sure it'll be all buttoned up like it would from factory.

      Just so everyone's aware, you can also use the manual trans, trans mount, shift box, and axles out of a 2008 Audi TT 3.2.

      That’s actually the combo I figured I’d run. I haven’t seen anyone mention it but wouldn’t it make sense to swap out the rear diff to keep the rations the same?

      The rear diff from mk4/TT mounting points are different and wouldn’t bolt up to B6 rear sub-frame. Also the Haldex module is old, would need to swap in newer module.

      Good info, is that case with the 2008 TT too?

      In terms of mounting points the MK4/TT are the same, MK5/TT/A3/RS3 are the same, Tiguan 5N1 & 5N2/Q3/SQ3/RSQ3 are the same, and B6/Euro B7/CC are the same.

      I believe that B6 & Tiguan are compatible in mounting points.9
