Audi S6 Manual Transmission Swap

Posted on by admin
Manual
  1. Audi S6

The OEM B5 transmission is a bit lame in its gearing; and because of the different gear ratio against the rear diff it might be a good idea to find an B5 S4 transmission and a matching A6 rear diff. This will ensure better fuel mileage as well, the S4 transmission has more kick from a stand still and at 3000 rpm runs about 80-85MPH, the allroad OEM transmission can not match that, it needs higher revs for a good cruising speed. Remember, you need to match both, trans and rear diff, plus the fact of getting a 6MT drive shaft to connect everything, the AT shaft is too short. Furthermore, you'll need the allroad MT flanges for what ever transmission you go with, it's a simple plug'n play setup but a bit pricey and only available from Audi for about $800.00. Found an '04 allroad 01E 6 speed that was being parted out.

Took EVERYTHING for the swap, hubs and all. Only thing missing was the shift boot and knob. AMS Autowerks in Linden, NJ did all of the work. The allroad is transformed. I went stage 3- back in December. Tip trans had reverse issues.

Then started to get the P0741 tq code. Ergo the reason for the swap. This mod thing is crazy, went 2Bennet coilover program 4yrs ago. I need a car that has to be reliable. The airbags became a big PITA.

Whichh side is down this morning? Second mod was Revo Teknik stg 1. Nice smooth toon by the way. But tip trans cannot handle mods. Well atleast with spirited driving. Really enjoying the performance from the 01E.

Sorry to dig up such a 'old' thread, but I've recently been looking at ALLROAD's for my next car and definitely want a 6 speed. Right now there are only two 6 speeds for sale within 300 miles of me. Been checking craigslist/autotrader/cars.com/EBAY etc allroad2001 - Can you guessitmate the cost for the entire swap?

When you said the following, 'it's a simple plug'n play setup but a bit pricey and only available from Audi for about $800.00.' Were you refering to just the MT flanges or everything (minus the tranny) that would be needed to do the swap? If it's $800 for just the flanges, I would imagine that with the cost of the tranny, driveshaft, rear diff, mounts etc it would be fairly expensive. I've been working on cars for 15 years and have done a Escort manual-to-auto swap and a chevy 350-in a S10 swap so I'm not scared of the mechanical/electrical work. I would be interested in what the parts cost would be though.

There are about 260 AUTO allroads in my area and I could leverage a way better deal on one of those than a factory manual car. Thank you Silver Supporter $ Posts: 8 Joined: Wed Nov 17, 2010.
