Question Tiptronic engine OK in 6 speed?

In searching for a replacement 3.2L for my 6 speed 2001S, I find many coming from donor cars with a Tiptronic. Will these work with a 6 speed by simply switching the flex plate for a clutch & PP?

Yes, + the dual-mass flywheel. There is a additional coolant connection for the tiptronic, just put the 2 engines side by side & exchange the connecting part.

Wiring harness is different too, but not a big deal if you have your old one.

+1 ^^^^ What he said.

IMHO, a Tip replacement engine is the best choice since it was likely driven in Auto at lower RPM's for most of its previous life. At least, that is my (unproven) theory.

Been running this combination for 3 years. As others noted.
1.Transfer your C,P,F to the new motor or renew they bolt right up. You'll also need Flywheel bolt for a manual.
2.Transfer the engine wiring harness from the manual motor.
3.There is a 4 way "T" and 3 way "T" cooling hose on the Tip motor use the 3 way hose and the "L" shaped hose from the Manual motor.
4.The vacuum line on the tip at the intake has a 4 way tee use the manual 3 way "T" from the manual motor.

I believe that is it.
