[Es2] Lots of ??

I assume the half-shafts must be from a later S2 (with 6 speed)?  Is it
length that differs?  I've got a spare pair from an early S2 (3B).

You need a bunch of parts to put in a six speed.  First off, you need
the tail housing from an S2 or RS2 if you had the transmission in an S4.
They are different.  You also need the shift plate (bolts on to the
transmission) and linkage.  Don't forget axles.  Oh yeah, and the
subframe is different as well.  I think that you can make the five speed
subframe work, but you will need to fit some large spacers to get the
mounts in the right place.

I've been looking for someone to do a 3" exhaust for a long time for an
S2 or ur q.  So far, everything out there is custom I believe.

You can find that stuff on ebay.de or from Tobias Tschopp at
totsteile.ch in Switzerland.  Tots will ship to the us, and should have
everything that you need.
