    I can't say for sure that it would or wouldn't work, but I would assume, that if you have a shifter with the slap shift manual mode, asong as you hav the proper transmission, shift ,able, and TCU, why wouldn't it work?

    Yes, you can do it. Three of the bolts line up with the 2G DSM bolt holes, but it puts it pretty far forward. I can't remember off hand what color the two wires are that you need for the shift-box, but it should take all of a few seconds with a test-light, to find them. It does bolt in, it does work beautifully too. :)

    Hop on Facebook, join a group called Mature DSM'ers, and post that question there. There's a guy there that pioneered this setup, and is more than willing to talk about it and post pictures. I'm not a member there anymore, but it's a good group.

    Does your shift box shut down the TCU when activated? And would you be able to switch between manual and automatic modes while driving?

    According to the link I posted above, it should. Instead of using the forced 4 toggle switch, the shifter acts as the switch. when in D, the TCU gets power, when moved to tiptronic, the shift box is powered.

    Did you finish installing the shifter? Did the center console go back in after? Trying to find pics of the 3g shifter in a 2g with the center console reinstalled

    I will be doing this as well. I actually just spent the last hour or so cleaning it and took it all apart and cleaned it throughly and then sanded,painted and cleared. I'm happy with the finished product. I haven't installed it into the car yet but will be doing so hopefully by the end of the week or weekend. I have some start to finish pictures and already it looks better LOL.

    Any pictures on a 1g or 2g with it full installed? Did your shift box come with wiring info to wire it to a 3g shifter?

    no wiring info from the makers of the shift box to wire it up to a 3g shifter, there are 2 wires that produce ground when the tip-tonic is activated.
