Re: tanny swap (SA Golf)

A LOT... I'd suggest getting a Bentley, it's a huge job you're talking about there, and it'll go into huge amounts of detail as to that sort of procedure.
If it were me, I'd just trade the cars
I mean, it's possible to do, but it's just so involved, its' infinitely easier just to swap keys

5spd to auto.... first, why? the auto trannies are notoriously horrible, bad shifting, poor mileage, no power, etc etc, and they like to crap out on peopel, leaving you with either needing a rebuild ( which never last), or another used tranny, which will crap out as well.
anyways, you will need the tranny, auto shift box and cables with the starter kill, starter itself, throttle body and throttle cables, torque converter, that's all i can think of off the top of my head to do 5spd-to-auto.
