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.
