You beat me to it with the same/similar question. Can I retrofit the
drivetrain from my '87 5ktq avant into the 200 20v tq avant, if I
wanted to do something insane like that?
Any comments on advantages, disadvantages, no-nos, yes-yes's or what
I probably wouldn't even follow through on this, short of unforseen
catostrophic failure on the 200 tqa, but must admit, for some reason, I
kind of liked the feel of the 5000 drivetrain better, the dual diff.
lock functions, and other aspects. Perhaps it is what I've been used

[Okay, thanks. That makes sense I think, since the '84 4kq had the
(more desirable for some) 3.89 gear ratio, meaning quicker acceleration
due to higher rpms for a given mph.
So, how about this for a bastardization/cost savings? Can I put a Type
85 016 in a Type 44, such as an '85-87 4kq tranny in a 200q20v? I
realize I would be backdating to a locker diff, but this would give the
correct gear ratio I believe.
Would this tranny fit the 200 chassis? *wrings hands*
