Should be able to tell by checking the throttlebody assembly. The version 
used in the Passat/A4 have the "conventional" cable throttle. Also check into 
the shipping costs and documentation coming with the motor, especially if 
you're rebuilding a car for a DMV salvage inspection. They'll want to see 
paperwork indicating the motor was purchased from a legally-dismantled 
vehicle. Plus the whole shebang would have to come in below the 3500$ that 
conversion packages are going for these days.
