Hey all,

Going back to the question somebody asked about tranny swaps for our cars, while I know the info on Audiworld is sometimes suspect, if the info is correct it lists all the same gear ratios for our car and the previous 200's.  That combined with other evolutionary info I'd heard about the type 44 makes me think it's the same tranny.  Any thoughts on this?  

My next guess is that the tranny on the next gen. 100/A6, is the an evolution on the trans.  Here I'm guessing that with the change in the ratios (this according to Audiworld), a newer synchro set and shifting mechanism was used giving smoother shifting.  

Last question; Chris, are you sure that the person who suggested the 100 trans.  meant the S4/6 trans, and not one of the incarnations out of the 91 and previous, or 92 and on 100's.  Where these transmissions also problematic like the S4/6 trans?  And even if they weren't, I wonder if they would become problematic with the extra power, not too mention the different gearing.
