Both units are quattro's
i think the 6 six speed is a blot on. that being said the electrical and TCM are different.
you will be able to pick up a 6 speed at advance automotive. hes over at audizine he might be able to help you alot more as hes helped lots of 4.2 owners with the conversion.
im not too sure of the 5 speed is a bolt on. but i do know lots of people over at audizine have successfully done the conversion.
