If I remember correctly, the VEMS has a tach-out function just for driving a tachometer. I could be mistaken though.

Does the vw trans and the Audi engine bolt up to each other?

If not, you have swap numbers for Kennedy.

yes this transmission came from a 2001 passat it is what is called a 012 transmission and it bolt right to the Audi engine it has a dual bolt pattern and the shift linkage is from a Porsche boxster as it uses this same 012 transmission in the 97-99 years . the 012 is not the best transmission for the toughest you want the 01E fwd 6 speed it is in 04 and up Audi A4's and it bolts to the Audi v8 . i forgot you can get a 016 transmission they came in Audi 5000 ,90,100,200 from mid 80's to mid 90's and are a bit tougher than the 012 i am told and bolt up to the V8 Audi and for the flywheel 034 motorsports

It will look bad IMO . Apart from that I'm watching with great interest. I was walking through my school parking lot and saw a Jetta with a W8 in it, one can only dream..

Don't let the naysayers get you down. Sometimes people don't realize that it's actually your car you are modifying and you have to live with it. It would be different if you had asked for an opinion.

Keep up the great thread. Looking forward to seeing how the story turns out.

At the end of the day it is your car do it the way you want, which is pretty damb well. Keep up the good and intresting work.
I am intrested in how your axles turn out as I have not got any made for my engine swap my axle are probably a little more out of alignment than yours.

That is a photoshop made from 85SEnochie . It uses NSX headlamps instead. Try posting in his photoshop thread: Photo Chop Shop is open lets give it a shot!
i think 3000gt headlamps with munson's nose has potential to look good.

this should allow me to run VW passat axles when used with their hubs that are redrilled to 5x100 bolt pattern. the VW axles are bigger and have bigger CV joints
