Guess it all depends on how the torque is applied. 300-ish wheel tq I'd imagine before it really starts going south if the car is driven pretty hard. If you took the secondary pinion shaft and had it stressed relieved and REM/Cryo treated it may hold more but the weak point is right at the transition of the splines on the secondary shaft where the primary/secondary pinion shafts engage the center diff. The secondary pinion shaft is really just a hardened machined tube with splines and bearing races. Maybe .200" thick at it's best.I was wondering what do you think torque wise a quattro box could handle when converted to 2wd. If to say you wouldn't use a v8. I know blasphemy. Just curious.
:wrongforum: First post for you. This should be in the garage sale, read the forum rules that you just signed up to. This is about tech info on the 01X.Hi Guys,
I have an 01X here in the box, meant to get a Quattro version but was sent a fully rebuilt unit that is FWD.
Do let me know if anyone is interested in this as I think can serve you well but is nothing for me.
I'm located in New Jersey and you may hit me up and we'll set something up.
Thanks in advance
Hi Brett,:wrongforum: First post for you. This should be in the garage sale, read the forum rules that you just signed up to. This is about tech info on the 01X.
...I have compared the 01X with 01E..and 01X seams stronger build?
I am particularly interested in comparing the 01X and the 0A2, but so far have only managed to find info in comparison to the quattro 0A3.01e > 0a2 > 01x > 016
01E was phased out in the 2003-2005 model years. In 2004 4 cylinder and V6 gas engines got the 01X transmission as it is a significantly lighter duty transmission than the 01E the 01X is similar in strength to the 5 speed 01A/012.Here is what i have found out
Audi changed the transmission number 01E to 01X on 2wd trans year 2002-2005 ,but the 4wd still had the 01E numbers.
But the thing is.
I need to find out if the 01X and 01E Have the same mount to the frame..
and if i can use the 01E adaptorplate for ford 302 on the 01X???
I'm not sure what you mean by axle base, but the 01X gears are at least half the width of the 0A2 gears. pinion shaft/input shaft on the 0A3 is also much larger. Ring gear diameters are the same if I remember.If anyone can confirm those details for the 0A2, particularly the axle base, it would be very useful.
On a cross-section diagram of the gearbox, the centreline to centreline distance between the prop shaft (upper) and output (lower) shafts.I'm not sure what you mean by axle base...
I will be using the shifter that Fran supplies for my 01X box. I know that a memebr has already used it on his 01E. The shifter, I think, is made for an 016/5000, and requires a little 'tweaking' for the 01E/01X. However, the forum member says he is extreamly happy with his and changes smoothly.
Unfortunately, the guide doesn't include details of the 0A2, so I was looking to corroborate if it is a 2WD cousin of the latter 0A3 and shares its 82mm axle base.
