I have a 1.8t and o2j for the swap. I didn't think the 02j would work because oof the dogbone mount? Yes/no? I know the 02a will fit. But what about axles? I'm worried about the length. Help ASAP!

Re: What axles to use on the mk2 1.8t/02a swap? Or can I use the o2j tranny? (extremsplvr6)

If you use the O2A then use the O2A axles.
You can use the O2J with O2A mounts. For axles with the O2J you can either buy custom axles or you can replace the flanges with mkIV TDI flanges and use your axles. I've heard that the mkII axles don't last with the 1.8T but I suppose it depends on how you drive.
From O2O to O2A or O2J will require conversion to cable shift but the cable shift is not the same on O2A and O2J. It also requires conversion to hydraulic clutch or you have to convert the trans to cable clutch.
