View Full Version : 2.8L tiptronic to manual SWAP

07-30-2007, 03:52 PM
Hi I own a 2001 2.8L tiptronic and after searching for the informations needed, all my searches where irrelevant.

Here's my questions:

Is is possible to swap my tiptronic tranny to a 2.8L manual tranny ?

Has anybody done it ?

Can anybody supply links ?

Thanks a lot

anything is possible with $$

your best bet would be to sell the tip and buy a 5 spd 2.8...they're a dime a dozen.

I tried selling mine before and got some interest, but all these kids couldn't get a loan to buy it. You're not too far away from me either...tons of 5 spd 2.8s here in Ontario.

The physical swap wouldn't be all the difficult (keeping the whole procedure in mind though). The tricky part is the ECU and peripherals. I hate to be a negative nancy but you would be better off buying a 5spd 2.8 over doing a swap.

cost about 3 grand for all the parts and the swap. Talk to greg (2001s4ny). He's the one thats doing mine and has done them before. Very reasonable if you look at all thats required.

better yet, a 1.8T 5spd : )
