Evening,

My knowledge is very limited in this area but I think I’m correct in saying there are only 2 ways that the A2 gets the speed signal. It’s either the cable from the gearbox or the ABS sensor.

Looks like you’re ready to have a 6 Speed Conversion adventure.

Kind regards,

Tom
G' Evening Tom,
Yes, it looks very promising now.
I will have to do all the work my selves and I have to combine the gearbox swap with some other details I want to test out, so it will take time.
In the mean time I will follow your project and be happy on your behalf 👍
A long leg'ed gearbox has been so high on my dream list since 2008 and finally... it seems to come trough ;)

Cheers

As this thread is now quite long I thought it might be handy if I summarise from my experience with a 2002 AMF with the MK60 ABS:
1) If searching for a six speed box keep an eye out for the PTU gearbox too. It's confirmed to work well with the AMF and seems to have same gear ratios as MYP. I found it easier (and cheaper) to get a low mileage and newer PTU than an MYP (the PTU I got came out of a 2014 Audi A3 1.6 TDI).
2) If changing the clutch make sure it's a known good make (LUK or Valeo seem ok). I had woeful rattles which turned out to be from a cheap clutch.
3) I can also confirm that if you go for the starter motor from the donor car you wont have the after-start squeal that the A2 starter gives and it will easily align correctly. The A2 starter is a tiny bit smaller in diameter and whereas it can be used there's a chance it will be misaligned and damage flywheel teeth. If using the donor starter make sure you get the plug with some wire on it as its different to the one on the A2 loom.

Hope thats helpful. Im just summarising info supplied from other generous members here that I can confirm correct from my experience.

- brilliant summary, both PTU gearbox and clutch issues are new elements to me (and very good to be aware of) 👍

Not directly gearbox related but; I just cannot stop being very impressed of how people take care of each other on this Forum 👍:)👍

Do the MYP gearbox have serial number and "MYP" marking/tag on the outside of the gearbox?

I'm asking since I will pick up a gearbox next week and the seller say he cannot supply pic of MYP marking/serial number.... and then I get a bit conserned...

We have agreed that I pay when I have the box in my armes, so I have 60 sec to check.
Any advice?

Yes they have the marking "MYP" engraved on the housing, it's in the orange marked spot between the shift tower and black plastic cable holder thingy.

Hello everyone,

Reading about the different gearboxes that can be mounted on the 1.4 TDI BHC engine. What is the difference between the MYP variant and the PTU variant? From what I see they have the exact same gear ratio. But ... Could someone tell me what differences the two gearboxes have? Is the installation of a PTU box more complicated compared to an MYP?

Kind regards,

Miguel.
