This transmission from a Quantum TD , type 013-5M,or 9Q, is in itself a
pretty rare find. But any four cyl Audi of the same era will have the
same trans but with a different 5th gear ratio.
I was going to put an Audi 013-2N in my Quantum TD before I sold the
car. Instead of the 0.730 5th gear, the 2N had a 0.684. A few less RPM
at freeway speeds.
My understanding when I was in the know, is that the VW Fox guys wanted
this transmission to upgrade their factory four speeds, or to replace
their broken, inferior, five speeds.
