    it'll probably be the same, check the gearbox code to be sure.

    any O1A trans will work as long as its not for a s4 or tdi. I have a 1.8T trans behind my 2.8 right now.

    2,6L tranny won't work, it's 4.11:1 while the 2,8L unit is a 3.89:1.

    Forgot about that one.

    The 1.8 trans has shorter 1st and 2nd gears and the 2.8L trans has a better 5th gear ratio for cruising.

    2.6, S4 and TDI use the 4.11 final drive ratios so they are out unless you get a matching final drive also.
