There isn't, unless it was frankenstein'd either by the shop, or by
the (hopefully still intact) previous owner. The pictures are
horrible, but I think I see a clutch cylinder up top? The linkage
doesn't look right for the manual, though...and it doesn't seem to be
long enough for a quattro tranny. Anyone a better guesser than I? :-)
It is from a TENS car, so it is NOT a 5000 tranny(note the large
TENS cable brace on the tranny.)

Not to mention, it is very obviously from a crash. Note the broken
passenger side tranny mount, cracked t-belt cover, and a complete
lack of electronics. If the ECU is missing, its pretty much useless
to someone looking to do a swap...3B ecus are pretty much not
available, and a 3rd party ecu would set you back a pretty penny for
one with barely the features of the Motronic. I also don't see any
harness(and no maf sensor/airbox...) More gotchas for a swapper.
The state of disassembly wrt the CVs is puzzling- its like the
passenger side driveshaft was snapped, because they didn't bother to
remove the CV, but did on the other side.
Lets not forget that a shop has to be pretty bad to not be able to
tell the difference between an automatic and a manual transmission.
It may seem like a great steal, but there's no mention of whether it
even runs. I would steer VERY clear of this one. Tempting? Yes.
Too risky? Yes.
