      Hello all,
      First post for me in this forum, it's a very nice place and very informative!
      I'm swapping a transverse engine (AUM) in a longitudinal car, and I was wondering which oil sump should I get? My knowledge stops at the A4/Passat sump:

      However I've got some ground clearance issues and this sump seems to hang pretty low.
      I was wondering if there are other options available?
      Thanks

      Grab a later golf/Jetta 2 piece oil pan. I think they started using them in 2003.

      Agreed, hybrid pan is the way to go

      Thanks for the reply.
      Can I use the hybrid pan safely on a longitudinal engine as well? I thought they were for transverse use only.
      Which oil pickup tube should I use eventually with this pan? Still the short one for longitudinal engines, or the long one?
      Thanks again

      Ahh, you are swapping the other way. If it's an 058 block, you have to find an aeb oil pan. If it's an 06A block, any late b5 or b6 pan will work

      Just to be clear, I'm mounting a transverse engine (Golf mk4 AUM) into a longitudinal engined car (b6).
      So should I get a b6 sump and oil pick up? Can't use the hybrid pan right?

      Is the aum internal or external water pump? If internal, use the b6 pan/pickup. If external, use the aeb pan/pickup

      06A block, so internal. Can you confirm the b6 pan is the one in the photo on the first post please?
      Thanks.

      What car are you swaping into? If b6 a4, be aware the thermostath flange in the block is machined different, if its a B5 coolant system with mechanical thermostath, it should work as is.

      What year and model is the car it is being swapped into?
