I found a 16 valve and a 5 speed transmisson out of what i think is a b3 passat the clutch cable looks like it is in diff place. I need a trans and the guy only wants 50 bucks for the motor and 50 for the trans. And i already got the 14 inch le castlletes for 50 bucks.
What moddifications do i need to do in order for this trans to work in my rabbit? i think the tranny is cable shift as well will that just swap over with my existing linkage or is that a completely diff setup? Please help me out cause i would like to swap my 1.8 cis for some 16valve megasquirt but i dont wanna drop the 16valve in on a bad 020 tranny also i hope the tranny will be geared a little lower cause 4k at 60 in fifth gear is not cutting it. So thanks in advance for your help.

16v b3 passats have 02a transmissions. so, no it will not bolt right into your car, you need to convert to a hydro clutch among other things.

Hydro clutch can easily be solved though nowadays.
For instance, i use my cable with this home-made aparatus:


You will also need custom drive side and rear mounts, both of which are mass produced by vortex users.
I take it though, that if you are the type to be looking for good deals, a 250$ mount is not something you are willing to consider, if i am wrong, then i apologize.
If you choose to buy it and need help making a bracket like mine (to make your cable function with a hydrolic tranny) don't be shy to send over a pm

^^That's a pretty sweet custom slave cylinder, pretty creative http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
You can also use the clutch cable setup from a Eurovan on a 02A.
Here's a good link on the subject:

Re: (silvervdubs99)

I am very interested in more details about the hydro/cable 02a clutch adapter. I am looking to go the same route on an 02a swap into a mk3 golf aaz w/ cable clutch.
Any pictures of it installed? dimensions?
cheers,
Alan
