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.
