  • V8 front wheel drive

    Im sure this would of been asked and I did do a search but nothing was there. Does anybody know which front wheel drive gearbox would match up to the 4.2 V8? or what adaption plate is needed?

    I will be converting the cabriolet later this year and wanted to keep it relatively simple.

    Thanks for looking.

      There was a FWD A8 (D2) 3.7, but that had an auto box.

        I'd look to the 012. It has the same bolt pattern as an 01A and I know those fit with ABH 4.2 and I believe ABZ 4.2's as well

          A while ago I've seen online a 6 speed fwd gearbox from a tdi and the seller claimed that aparently that box is good up to 600Nm. I have no idea if that's true tho.

            I'd be interested in knowing which fwd box that was.

              I found that ad in my browser history. It's DPK gearbox from an A4 or something I'm not sure. The ad is in polish and the guy said that he was planning to put in in 2.2T Cabrio swap but changed his mind. He claimes that you can put it in Audi 80 without modifying the trans tunnel. Here is the ad if you want to play a bit with google translate. https://www.olx.pl/oferta/audi-80-co...tml#ecaea138a1
