Also the same as an Audi 80 and 90 and VW Fox. Years past, I had a Fox with a pressure problem, and put the bigger pump in with my pickup tube. The pump itself was only avalilable for the Jetta/Golf, that's why I had to do it that way. 

Let me clarify that, the 80 and 90 with the 2.0 gas(7A) 4-cylinder, not the 2.3 NG 5-cyl or the 2.8 V6.

The reason the pickup is shaped differently is the orientation of the engine. IN the Fox/Dasher/VW Fox/80/90 the engine sits longitudinal, and the subframe runs under it. That's why the pan is shaped differently, and holds less oil. In the Rabbit/Jetta/Golf/Scirocco the engine sits transverse, and there is no subframe in these cars to get in the way of the pan.

And, if anyone needs one but can wait a while, I'm sure I have several in Oklahoma. Email me directly, and I'll check.

>I did some looking around- the dasher, quantum and audi 4000 use the same pump. this is different than the jetta, golf, etc pumps.  The difference is the angle and location of the pickup.
>when buying these, they don't make a difference between the pump and pickup, but call them all a "pump", even though we know that the pump and pickup are two different parts.
>i got a NOS one for about 200$ shipped from VW diesels in Ohio- great plate- i strongly recommend them.
