    depends what the EBD came from really.....
    if it's from a diesel car I'd advise against it massively, also, 1.8 and 1.8T boxes have taller ratios.

    The 1.6 had a fairly low ratio box as it's so underpowered. much higher revs at a given speed on the 1.6 box.

    if it's from another 1.6 it may well be ok.....

    you may need to swap the shifter assembly on top of the box over from the old box, but otherwise it should go I guess.....

    I put a 1.6 petrol box onto a 110 tdi, was a great laugh!
