According to what little information I have accumulated in a 
spreadsheet, that might be because the 016 is specifically a quattro box?

And the 013 is 2wd.  Ratios vary under both codes, again, just going by 
some info I have.  2wd and Q boxes have different mounts, and different 
shift linkages.  The engine bolt-up seems to be the same on all the old 
Audi trannies.

013's are also cable clutch actuated, 016's are hydraulic.
