    Yeah you can swap a load of different gearboxes as long as it has the early type gear change setup like yours will have.

    Some other code are DYP, EBN, EGY, ENJ, EVS.

    they've told me that there is a 5 bolt disc/or something like that/ that have different shape on different gearboxes.I am not sure for which part they are talking about, but there is some doubts that all trannys can fit on my engine.As long as I know that is some part outside the gearbox itself and it mounts to something else....excuse me for the lame language :)
    Do you have any idea?
    Thanx

    Maybe they are talking about the bell housing? Not sure. Basically if the box is from another 2WD 1.8T golf, leon or A3 if should fit. But you need to look out for the gear linkage design. You can fit a later gearbox, but you'd need to swap the cables and gear lever box, which is obviously something you don't want to do.
    The codes above were taken from the audi service data, so should all be okay for your car.
