Zf autos all the same length?
Are all the zf autos, tdi and v8, the same length?
I've been looking into the tdi swap pretty hard lately and haven't sold myself on either the manual or the auto yet. But I was wondering if the zf auto for a tdi is the same total length as the v8 one. It would be nice to leave the driveshafts alone and just be able to bolt the trans/transfer case in the same spot.
I have the auto v8 now and I keep hearing from people that if you go tdi auto you need a new crossmember to mount the auto. I thought that all autos would be the same length. Does the tdi bellhousing do something?
So does anyone know about this?
