|the snouts are different on at LEAST the AEB motors,not sure about the rest of the longitudinal motors.|
Not the snouts, the flywheel end is different. The Auto cranks aren't machined for throw out bearings, and don;t have as pronounced a register sticking out (so as to clear the converter)
What this means-
Any crank manual or auto crank will work in a transverse VW (assuming they came in the same style block, 058 or 06A)
You can use an auto crank in a manual transmission Audi IF you make an adapter to hold the throw out bearing.
You cannot use a manual crank in and auto UNLESS you machine down register to clear the converter.
