        Front subframe is different if you are moving between 5 and 6 speed boxes. If you are moving everything over into an ABY shell you'll be fine with the transplant.

            if your moving everything from 3b to aby it will fit exept for the subframe bush bolt size. but i presume they will come new as you have everthing down.

              It would help if you could be more specific about what you are doing. There are many subtle differences that may or may not be an issue, depending on what parts you are hoping to cross over.

                I have a complete 3b that had previous body repairs done that were not good...i have found an ABY shell that was stripped of its running gear to use in a short wheel base quattro build ...i want to transfer my engine gearbox and subframes , suspension , hubs etc in to the ABY shell it still has it's interior complete ...all wiring and pipework including abs pump and steering rack in place

                      well its posible but takes time and i think you will almoast end refubishing the whole suspension and other bits.

                        id keep the aby suspension. check the diff code see if tis the same. change gearbox and front shafts. rears are same on all cars 16v included.
                        you need to keep all abs from aby or swap.

                        rear sub is same on all b3 cars ive seen.

                        issues will be around front subframe, shafts and wiring.
