Has anyone done this from here. I have been looking into this but have not found anything out yet. What would be needed to make this work? Thanks

1. Take all mods off your car.<br>2. Sell your car.<br>3. Buy a 6MT car.<br>4. Reinstall mods.<p>Am I close? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

It's going to work a heck of a lot better and cost you a lot less... hell with careful planning you could probably do the sell / buy and break even. With this car's electronics swapping the tranny is a nightmare I wouldn't even want to think about.

Re: R Auto to 6-Speed How To (Luciano)

1. Move shifter to the manual gate<br>2. Press down with left foot just before tapping the shifter up/down<br>3. Release left foot<p>Still only a 5 speed since you have a 2005 but it will make you feel a bit better.

You can bet that the tech's haven't actually done one though, so be prepared for a few months of debugging unless you dedicate the best guys to that task. In the end I still think you come out on top by swapping cars completely. Especially if you work at a dealership! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (p0cket penguins)

Something tells me the ECU would be totally freaked by not seeing the Auto Trans there. I'm sure that you can load code for a manual, but not sure how that would be done....

It's not like they're going to have done it before. You've never had someone tell you "sure, it's no problem" and then come back later with their tail between their legs "huuuh, we've got a big problem" ....
