Re: Am I in for problems using the 01E?
Not sure what difference it makes, but I have an SLC, not a GT40. So I'm not quite sure what "normal" engine height of a GT40 is compared to that of the SLC. In the GT40, does the engine oil pan run even with the frame? Also, I have heard LS(x) oil pans are very shallow, if the oil pan is even with the frame, would it make it too low. Also, I believe the tire/wheel combination on the SLC is a bit taller.
Trust me, it is not my intent to question your opinion, quite contrary, I would like nothing better than the Audi transaxle to work without having to raise the engine up above where it is normally mounted.
There are a few sites I have seen that you can get high angle CV joints that work with up to 20 degrees of angle without binding, and can for short moments go up to 40. If so, that would definitely solve the high angle issue
I see a ton of pros using the Audi Transaxle
Gearing - Especially if you look at the diesels
Torque capacity - diesels again
