From what?

The VAG version of the 6sp longitudinal FWD ZF slushbox was I believe only found in AWD models, so it is actually a ZF 6HP19A, and it is a very different transmission than the 5HP19FL units in the B5 Passat. It would be a massive undertaking, with very little if any payoff. The BHW has as much torque as some V8s. It doesn't really need any more gears. At 80 it is square in the meaty part of the engine's output.... halfway between peak torque and peak horsepower. Delivers good fuel economy, never needs to downshift, etc.

well one the car i bought the tranny is b/o, so he was going to convert it to the zf 6hp19 all wheel drive or keep it front wheel drive by remvoing the back cover from the zf 5hp19 and installing it on the 6. apparenlty giving 4 liters to 100 instead of 5. so i have this transmission zf 6 and it looks identical to the zf 5 except the rear wheel drive option. amd i want to use if i can. so if any ones do this, can you help
