So is this the final word on swapping a 6 bolt into a AT 2G?

I'm trying to decide if I should try to make it work or just build up a 7 bolt for my wife's 98 TSI. If it's just a matter of opening up the 7 bolt flexplate holes to fit the 6 bolt crank, then I can see that being the easier route to take.

Re: part numbers

I am the guy that has the 6bolt in a 95 with the right flexplate, etc... the model numbers you are looking for are here:
Bushing - MD011848
Plate - MD735674
On the work receipt it says that they had to turn the pilot bushing and had to modify the torque converter. Sorry I don't know what was modified but that is all the work order says. Good luck with it.
I just ran those part numbers. It looks like all they did was buy another 6 bolt flex plate and bushing and machine them.

So taking a 6 bolt flex plate and machining it to correct specs is the awnser.

There is still an issue with the clearance from the tranny pump getting pushed in too hard by the torque converter. From the time I attempted it I noticed it needs like an 1/8 to a 1/4 of an inch which means some sort of spacer or something is needed. I don't really know. It's just easier to go back to a 7 bolt to avoid issues. We are automatics and the need for a 6 bolt is really unnecessary. And people who want to drop is a used 6 bolts are really not using their heads because we are talking about a motor that is around 14 years old. I only tried it because a friend sold me a 6 bolt race motor with forged pistons and such.

Thanks for the tip dude! We know IPT has that stuff now. I originally made the post in 2002! And later someone asked in 2004. IPT released Kiggley's creation in 2005. I ended up just going back to a 7 bolt. Like I could wait 3 years for a flexplate.......
