Re: transaxle on audi v8 engine

I'm using the same engine and all the sources I've found say the popular 016 transaxle (from the Audi 5000) mates right up except for one bolt hole, but it's not one of the larger, more loaded bolts. I do not know about throw out bearing / clutch alignment though...

Re: transaxle on audi v8 engine

Sorry, I don't know Audi models that well, especially European models. Make sure you get a 2WD gearbox, not 4WD because supposedly modifying the 4WD to work as a 2WD is not as strong as the 2WD gearbox.

The 016 and 01E will both bolt to the V8 engine.
