Ok first question of the swap...
The 1.6td that came in the passat was bolted up to the passat tranny (O2A I assume? its cable shifted and hydraulic clutch) but I will be using the stock O2O golf tranny. The clutch is still bolted up to the engine and I was wondering if there are any differences between the O2O and O2A clutches...will I have a problem if I just leave that clutch on the engine and bolt on the O2O trans?
