Marc emailed me the options and I chose the same one with the adaptor. The fact that you are running the same option gives me the warm and fuzzies about the switch in management!
He gave me some support a few years back getting the pnp up and running on my urs4 and he made it super simple and painless. I'm excited to get back on the road with it again.

Finally got the transmission in over the last weekendand am able to drive it again.

Overall it was a fairly painless undertaking. For once I was fully prepared and had all the parts together to complete the install In one shot.

After the responses from 90quattrocoupe (Greg w) I learned I could use the factory sensor location on the transmission. I made a simple adaptor that will keep my current universal sensor centered in the hole and can be repeatedly removed without losing its adjustment. It is a piece of flat bar with a washer welded to the bottom to center in the hole and a spare nut welded to the top to thread the sensor in.

I also had to add about 1.5 - 2 inches to the shift linkage to make it work. I only adjusted the angles slightly on the extended piece the rest was just as it was removed from a 2002 a4 v6.

The iroz mounts went in very easily and the audi 4000 driveshaft fit perfectly. I only had to clearance a tiny bit of the transmission tailshaft for my exhaust to fit back on with a small spacer. All in all I did the whole job over the weekend by myself and didn't break a single bolt for once!

No post is complete without some damage. This is on the old 01a, check out the shard in the top right corner.

Everything seems to be working great no leaks or breaks so far. I am getting ready to install an old lc1 wideband I have laying around so I can adjust the fuel to something more reasonable. It's running rich right now, about 20L to 100km.

Looking nice. The 6 speed will make all the difference. Down the road, you can update the trans to a .56 6th gear. I love it, in mine, for cruising.

Before I went with the current stock flywheel sensor, I used the same one as yours. You may want to double nut that sensor and apply a little red loctite. Mine moved in a sheared off the tip, while I was at Spring Mountain Raceway. Ended my day.

Good eye, already done! That picture was just for mocking things up, it has a nut locking it down.

The lc1 has been installed and the fueling is a bit better, it'll have to do until my vems set up arrives from efi.

Currently I'm halfway done swapping the front seats from my urs4 into the 80. Drivers is done and the pain of rewiring the seat and adapting the old frame to the new one was definitely worth it, the side bolsters are much better. I don't slide to the passenger side under hard cornering anymore lol.

I also went to a couple autocrosses and had some fun. This video was recorded by the guy behind me. He was joking that I always left the line diagonally, so I told him I'd give it a good one lol.

I've been having a blast with this car, lots of track days and autocrossing. Here's a few pictures taken at some of the events, and a shot of the interior.

Now the nasty stuff. I assumed there was a brand name lsd in the car and that's how it was pitched to me when I bought it. I found out that it was actually a torsen unit from an early v8 audi. I discovered it at the same time it ventilated the rear differential lol. I wish I knew it was the explosion prone torsen I could have taken it easier on it!

Luckily a local guy I know as Audi Bob had a differential available for me at a great price. I'm up and running once again, but with an open diff this time. I ran it at autocross today and I definitely need another lsd lol. I could feel the loss of traction everywhere on the track.

Does anyone have a good recommendation for a quality aftermarket lsd for the b3 audi platform? Mostly used for autocross and lapping days. I need something that will take some abuse.

Nice to see this thing out there ripping it up!
I run a wavetrac in the rear and love it. You do need to shim it to set the bearing preload. Don’t just drop it in. These also retain the factory locking function!

Not to hijack a thread, will this work in the 4k diff? I would love to run one of these.

Nice number for autox, it run 90SM, lol.

Ben, worst case you just need to swap in 90 stuff in the rear. Hank runs one in his urq, but that's far from stock. See if you can get ahold of him. With a high bias-rear center, and the wavetrack, the car will on throttle over steer in second easily.

Thanks for the heads up about shimming the diff, there is a very well respected shop not to far away that I will have do the install.

The locking feature would be nice to keep however I would have to redo the vacuum lines and solenoids etc. Looks like the majority of it was removed when the torsen was installed. Currently I have the arm locked in the open position.
