Re: Audi 80 5+5 engine probs
# Thanks for all the feedback but the only problem is my car has a 3 speed
# auto (unfortunately very few were fitted with a 5 speed manual for this

# valves ??
... is that right?! I'm surprised they called it a 5+5 then! Kinda
reminds me of the Oldsmobile 442 here in the states. One of the 4's
originally was a four speed manual gearbox.
# Actually I was thinking of upgrading to a five speed gear box. I was quoted
# $400 + my auto gearbox to have the job done. Does this sound reasonable ??
# How hard would it be to do the change over myself ?? I could probably save a
# fair bit of money but would it be worth all the trouble ??
... get the job done and do away with your slushbox for $400? I don't
know what the exchange rate is for US$, but I'm going to start looking
into shipping rates to/from down under ... ;-)
If you really want to convert to a manual that sounds like a great price.
The guy is going to need to replace the tranny, half shafts and shift
linkage for that $400.
San Jose, CA (USA)
... where the labor alone to do the job would be over $400!
