How hard is it to take a 99 v6 5 speed and put a 5 speed tiptronic transmission in it. I am in need of a 5 speed tranny but i can't find one but i found a 5 speed tiptronic transmission and maybe looking to put that in to the car to get the car back up and runing can it be done, will it take a lot of work and has it ever been done

Thanks
Dan

I believe it can be done, but requires ECU swap and interior modifications too.

But the amount of labor cost you'll be spending to convert your B5 from manual into a tiptronic will exceed what you'll spend on just getting a 5 speed manual at a higher cost.

Used parts search website has quoted a price range of approx $1100 to $2000 for a tiptronic transmission (assuming your transmission code is DRD as for most non-4mo V6s). URL PMed to you.

Are you wanting to make it an auto or a manual? From what I see it looks like your wanting to go from manual to auto....but WHY?
