  It would be used in place of the very expensive Hewland gearbox that's 
currently installed. Although
light, the Hewland has neither the correct ratios nor the torque 
capacity for our current power train.
  I know that the 016 fwd gearbox is being used sucessfully in mid 
engine v8 powered kit cars and I
  have experience with the quattro version so I'm trying to source one. 
The only problem is that
  fwd 016 gearboxs don't seem very common. I do however have a line on 
an 013 from an 84 coupe gt
thanks to this list. What I need to know is what are the differences 
between the 013 and 016 coded
boxes? They have similar application ie fwd 5 cylinder VAG products. I 
know that they have
different gear and final drive ratios but is that it?

Cody Forbes has an 016 FWD gearbox - he got it from me when he got the 
pile of 5 cyl parts. 5 speed 2wd 5000s are not all that rare, but of 
course most of the 5000s in junkyards are AT because the AT blew.

Hydraulic clutch, basically has a hole in the bellhousing for the slave 
cylinder. With an electric motor, you don't even need a clutch, because 
an electric motor develops maximum torque at 0 rpm.
