  If nothing else, an Audi 4K 5+5 would definitely have a 5 
speed in it that would bolt up.  Volvo tranny pattern should 
be the same a Audi 5 banger, or at least have adaptation to 
it.  Audi coupes, 4K 5+5 and some of the early 5K's would have 
5 speeds.  Kinda scarce otherwise.  Some of the Volvos had 
4 or 5 speed manuals.  Dave Puleo (former list member that 
still owes me ~$100!) did a Volvo 245, put a manual in it and 
got about 45mpg on his break-in drive!  Lost track of him 
several years ago.
