I've read some posts, it sounds like 1998 to 2003 1.8t engines and trans will fit in a mk3 with little issue. I have a mk3 Cabrio stick shift. For cheap, I can buy a Passat with a stick shift, with a 1.8t, but it's a 2004. Can I make it fit (probably transmission as well considering the weakness of the 020)? No one explained why the 2004+ was any more difficult to fit (sounded like an axle issue).
