Some things I learned from my search:
Last year for TDI is 2006.
MT gets about 4 more MPG than AT.
AT cars have an 11mm pump which have been known to crack sometimes in high output situations. MT cars have a 10mm pump. Don't know what years this applies to though, sorry.
Even stock, I think it has a nice amount of power.
They're kinda hard to find and command a premium price.
The're really fun!
Again, all of this from personal experience.
2000 Ford F250, Merillion, 6sp, AIC, DPTuner, BB turbo, Adreneline pump, modified IDM.
1998 Mercedes E300, Custom injector nozzles, soon to have Eaton M90 supercharger, 7.5mm pump elements, Holset HX40 turbo and a full custom intake and exhaust system = 400HP from 3.0l
