Quick tech question: title.

An example would be swapping in a 2.8 5th gear into a 1.8T 01A. Mainly: Can I put a 2.8Q 5th gear into my 1.8T fwd transmission? Or do I need a 2.8 fwd manual donor for the swap?

Additional question: Are 01E and 01A gears interchangeable? Lol.

Someone just covered this. If it is possible, money will deter you once real cost comes out.

What are you trying to do

What are you trying to doMy trans isn't bad, like I said just want better highway mileage lol. Not swapping the whole Quattro trans vice versa like that other thread if that's what you mean.

I can grab junkyard 2.8Q gears for next to nothing, so cost isn't an issue, just one of compatibility.
