    I have a car with an auto transmission. I'm swapping an engine, a transmission and various hardware, including an engine harness. I wonder if I can keep original ECU and a cluster. Is it possible to re-program ECU with the VAG-COM to operate in a manual transmission mode? Do I need a "manual"...

    Hello, I am currently working on converting a 2002 B5.5 4motion passat with a 2.8 gas V6 to a 1.9 PD TDI. My reason for registering to this site specifically is to try and get the code for my radio. Because there is now a new edc15p ecu for the tdi engine, the radio thinks its in a different...

    Finally after weeks of prepping, the '04 got pushed into the garage tonight for it's resting spot until it rolls back out under it's own power.
