Diff swap, 6mt into dct car

I tried searching for this but only came up with people changing the r/p. Would it bolt up to my dct car without any issues? Just seems like a cheaper option as I've seen pumpkins for sale around $1k. This would be a great bang for the buck if it works.

Be wary of driveshaft length difference - I might be mistaken though

The DCT driveshaft is 23mm longer (according to realOEM) which means the diff is shorter in length. So you need to swap in a 6MT driveshaft as well. Looks like all of the other parts are the same.

If you need a used 6MT differential, drop me a line. 2010 w/only 11k.
