I have a swap en route and will be tackling this over the next few months. I will post my part numbers and findings once everything starts.

To answer a few or your questions:

-We are using an m3 gauge cluster w/ m3 dme

-we are using an m3 rear subframe and diff with a custom driveshaft

- AC will work with modifying the m3 ac condensor

- we are doing a 6 speed swap as it is simpler electronically than adding a DCT
