Interesting swap, I like my ALH but it'll stay in the wagon. I skimmed the posts but didn't see, is there a reason you went mk5? I'd love to see some VAGCOM data on this build if you want to share.
Cost. I actually wanted go run a jeep liberty 2.8L as it's a much heavier duty engine. But I found a cheap BHW passat motor first. So I went that route.

What data do you want to see?

I’m assuming you have to cut some of the transmission was to clear the new starter location? I’m custom making my own adapter plate and the starter location is my biggest problem currently. I don’t want to weaken the transmission overly, but that starter location is the only option.
Yes, if you look closely, the bellhousing is notched for the starter pinion. No problems since.

Scored a jk Rubicon transfer case to go with my nsg370 for $600! Also got a pair of 1310 yokes and a front driveshaft in a box kit from JE Reel Driveline when I was in LA last week. Getting closer!
