Default A4 b5 donor car

I have been looking for a donor car for a manual transmission swap with little luck. My search only finds cars too expensive, too far, or don't answer back. I did find a 98 Audi A4 2.8 fwd. What I could find is that the axles, shifter, trans mount brackets will work. But not sure. I don't know if the shifter linkage, clutch pedal assembly and master cylinder will work. Any knowledge would be appreciated. And I did try the search before posting.

The pedal and master/slave cylinder will work. Not sure about the shifter linkage but the shifter boot can be modified to make it fit really well. I did all this to mine.

Thanks. They looked the same but was not sure. Hopefully someone else will verify the linkage, if not I can always modify it.

$hit, what do you have to loose? Just try it and if it works, post it so others in the future can learn from it.

I will if the person responds back to me. Another ad that apparently the seller doesn't want to sell.

Probably sold that's why. People are too lazy to remove their ads.
