Our rules say "any automatic" but manual have to be h pattern. I have a dogbox setup for the car but probably just put the dsg in as its about the same money all in and faster shifting still. Going to use stock clutch until it causes issues.
Got it apart enough to check it out. Pretty beefy and easier to swap diffs than o2a for sure.
Do you know what the weights of the two are? DSG vs 02A?
I imagine you'll be picking up a decent chunk of weight, but I'd be interested to find out exactly how much that'll be. Plus how you're going to be controlling it. I honestly don't know too much about the DSG systems and how easily they could be setup.

Well, its a good bit. I can toss around an o2a easily. The o2e I can't even lift it.
Parts needed the way I am doing it:
Custom rear mount and relocated trans cup
Custom front motor mount
Redo cooling lines for trans cooler
Htg Dsg Ecu (standalone)
Dss stg5 axles
Peloquin diff with high torque mods
Probably about 5500 all in so not that different from the dog setup from scratch
