    Is the trans still there? Go get it. ASAP!

    So the broken trans crossmember is a good sign; why? Well, the crossmember is supposed to fracture upon impact versus damaging the transaxle, and it doesn't take much impact to fracture the OE B6/B7 crossmember.

    See if the car pricing has gone down, the shift linkage is still attached via the two highlight circles: green and pink circles are where the shift linkage needs to be removed before ya car remove the trans.




    Edit- update:

    I'll have a nice little update for us at the end of the week. Brackets were cut via CNC plasma, waiting for DOM tubing to arrive for a final mockup and welding and we will have mounts all taken care of.

    ^Indeed. Grab that thing! I don't have access to these pick-n-pulls like you guys in the warmer climates, so I have to live vicariously through your junkyard adventures.

    Pretty sure that silver bracket is just an exhaust hanger. Here it is in-action, holding the downpipe on a B7 2.0T 6MT:

    Haha...if you plan on re-vamping the B5, let me know and I'll set aside a bunch of stuff for ya all nice and clean. We do not have corrosion over here and I don't need 3 or 4 sets of AWM engine brackets, or accessory brackets etc. and would much rather kick it your way.

    I wasn't planning to do this anymore, but the trans is still there. Someone pulled the engine so it's real easy to grab.

    I have been following for a while, but havenít been motivated as my 01a is pretty stout and I already have a good spare.

    Just a thought, the B6/B7 linkage looks very similar to a B5 S4 linkage.

    My 01e isnít the best, and when playing around with the gear ratios for the GJV 02x and the 01e S4 trans it doesnít look horrible.

    S4:







    3.0 B6:








    My thoughts is that maybe for us S4 owners whom have issues with shift collars and such could swap to an 02x with just about the same work.

    We would get some longer gearing which isnít too bad when we are making loads of torque.

    If any have the measurements for the lengths of the shift linkages maybe we could find a solution for the S4 owners.

    Also on another note, with access to fab work one could make a DTS bar that utilizes the B5 mounts trans mounts(the and comes down and cradles the transmission.



    In doing this design there will be more room for downpipes.

    But, the only issue is for 1.8tqm as the driver? side mounting point is different if I recall correctly.



    This is something Iíve been tossing around for the past week and Iíd simply thought Iíd share. Hopefully it gives people ideas.

    Yes, we've kicked around idea of using the oem trans pick up subframe points to route a dts underneath the bell housing, in addition keeping the rear front subframe dts.

    We have progress. 100' of 4130 in 1" diameter (0.065) ordered and just made quite a few brackets. One of my best friends who does fabrication and welding for a living will be doing all the welding and assembly for us.
