The automatic transaxles used in rear engined VW models do not have removable bell housings. An iron casting houses the torque converter and final drive. However because the use a considerably more powerful starter motor than the manual version, and don’t have a clutch, the inherent problems with manual VW Subaru adaptor plate kits don’t apply to autos. This is very convenient, as an adaptor plate is the only practical way to join any alternative engine to a VW auto transaxle.

As far as we coud see, back in around all 2011 other automatic adaptor plate kits required modification of the VW auto transaxle, without good reason. More than likely their manufacturers do it that way to keep parts common with their manual adaptor plate kits. With a bit more thought modifying the VW auto gearbox simply isn’t necessary, and that’s why we designed ours. The kit includes everything you need to join any of the above engines to the VW transaxles as long as you have the VW starter motor and torque converter.
