There is a B5 1.8t, 5 spd in a JY near me. I was thinking maybe it would be a good idea to start gathering parts for a 5 spd swap in near future. I do not have a B5 TDI at this time but they are easy to come by. ( I have a B4 ) My question is , what can I use off this car ? I've read it needs to be a certain year? I'll get the trans from Frans. Just a list of everything I could use to cut down cost. Thanks .Col.

The car needs to be a B5.5, 2001.5 or newer. You can use the following,

axles
shifter box and linkage
clutch pedal
slave and master cylinders and hose
clutch switch and wiring pigtail
reverse lamp plug/pigtail
1.8T subframe and trans mounts can be used (I did both of mine this way) or you can just get a V6 manual left trans mount bracket and reuse your TDI auto subframe

There is probably more but those are the big parts.

2001 is the facelift year for the B5. Prior models use many different parts, axles being one major item. Suffice to say that its best to use a B5.5 as a donor, more stuff will fit.
