Here's one for some real ES2 content - I have questions regarding installation of the
RS2/ES2 6 speed transmission into the '90 Coupe Quattro.
I recently got a European Spec Transmission from 6 Speed ES2 in Canada - supposedly the
same transmission from an RS2.
Questions are basically what else do I need to do the conversion/installation?
The engine is an AAN from '94 S4 and has the spring loaded flywheel for the clutch -
will this work OK and is this sufficient for moderate power increase over stock? So far
I have confirmed spine count is the same as for the AAN clutch disk and 200 clutch
disks. The coupe Q flywheel and clutch are different, and so definitely wont work with
AAN clutch setup, but I'm installing 6 speed trans, so just trying to make sure the
clutch is right.
Next, I understand the transmission mounts are different, but have no parts numbers or
info. on which ones to use or a source.
Same with the shift linkage. That and I understand the axle half shafts may be
So I'm looking for information on the 6 speed transmission conversion and any parts
sources for this. Maybe there is a kit to do this conversion.

Waking the list from the nearly dead...
I will hopefully get some wrenching time over the holidays, and will
likely swap the radiator out of the coupe into our 90, which is
currently running with a vintage 1982 Urq radiator with a slow leak.
My replacement radiator goals are :
* better than stock cooling (plan to track the car, and it will
be running a chipped 20v turbo)
* removal of the secondary radiator (room for more IC)
* maintaining the AC system (which means retaining the condenser)
I did manage to get one of the "naked" 034/Ron Davis radiators to
work for me with my old CQ, but I want to avoid all the fabrication
that went into that. (customer SS clips for the side and front
mounts, lower mounts from a Ford Bronco, custom mid mounts to retain
the condenser...not to mention obtaining stock radiator mounting
clips/captive nuts that were ground to fit the radiator.)
So, other than the $$ Dialynx or the 034
radiator, does anyone have other ideas?
Happy and safe Holidays to all...
I'll give the floor back to the crickets...
