Hi I'm new to all this but read quite a lot relating use of Audi MYP Passat gearbox . Well fact is you can use other 1.6 TDI 6 speed boxes bases on VAG 02s box mine was from a 2016 Audi A3. My car was a 03 Audi A2 TDI sport , whole conversion took a day costs came to less than £400 all performed on my drive .
Results are 70 mph at 2000 rpm and extra 8 mpg 👍👍

Congratulations. Yes, there are multiple gearboxes that will 'fit'.

I believe the MYP coded gearbox from a small range of VW Passat's has the optimum gear ratios especially for a longer 6th gear. Im sure that here on the forum you will find the comparisons of the MYP ratios and the TDI75 and 90 A2 gearbox.

Welcome aboard and thanks straight away for a useful thread 👍
There was another recent thread in a similar direction, using the MZN gearbox - 5 speed but a little longer in 3rd, 4th and 5th than the standard EWQ box.
Any idea of the code of the 6-speed box that you used?

Hi yes it was pretty easy I replaced clutch at the same time that was slipping bad so have me a reason to swop box . I used the Audi NTG gearbox first 4 gears virtually same as standard A2 box , had to make two brackets copied from Google for gear change cable mount, swop over original diff flanges an gear change levers etc off old box bolt it back up job done .
eBay for NTG gearbox £320
New 3 piece clutch £60
Make up brackets £000

One day on my back with spanners 👍

Hi well to be fair it can't be both optimum for 90 & 75 ps engines as power characteristics quite different also 75 TDI didn't have starter motor issues like 90 .
I can only vouch for mine 75 TDI chipped engine loves this gearbox ratios on NTG box I fitted an cheaper that well published MYP which is mad as both fit almost same gearing an vast improvement over slipping clutch and tired synchros of my old box .

Very nice done @Lammiepie09 ! I'm wondering which gearbox/codes could more be used to improve the A2's. Seems that code PTU is also used in 1.6 tdi's, maybe that's a contendor too.......

One thing conversion best done on post 03 cars as speedo drive not from gearbox sensor , pre 52 plate cars need feed from sensor an that's a pain as newer VAG 02S 6 speed gearboxes have no sender even casings different completely !!

Hi PTU gearbox nearly identical to NTG l was intending to use one but my box came up with lower miles than others . I looked on Etka an it seems PTU /NTG look a higher torque gearbox than MYP too do all good

The 90 would most likely be better with the MYP as it has more low rev power

Sounds nice 😍 This isn't the one you did the 6-speed on then? Webasto was gone by '03 plate ... unless you somehow got a very late registered 2002 model car?
