For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Well, I found the exhaust leak. Blown-out gasket at the driver's side collector flange.

That's one action item off my list!

Anybody do a 5th gear swap?

Where did you get a trans cover to replace the one you have to ruin to remove?

Also, where did you get a new gasket for between the two halves of the housing?

Mike, it's that little end cover that you have to punch a hole through with a screwdriver to remove in order to get at the triple square bolt.

And there's a paper gasket between the front and rear halves of the trans housing.

The rear plug is readily available. There are two different part #'s posted though depending which transmission you have.

Let me know how you like it! How big of a step it is shifting from 4th to 5th and what your revs are at 80mph...

Damn, gotta get me a set of those. Looks like they'll clear a reinforcement plate too. What O.D. rear tires you running?

doc, will do. Although first I gotta do my clutch, TT, etc.

I was at about 2900 at 70 mph with my turbo 0.83 5th, by my calcs the 0.68 should get me to around 2350 at 70.

Xschop, I'm running 265-35-18's.

With 285-30-18's and a stock turbo S tranny I see 3250 rpm at 80mph. So with that diesel gear I'd be around 2650 in 5th at 80mph.

That would be pretty decent and would most likely get me another 4-5mpg back, so maybe high 20's mpg on the freeway. At least when I'm not towing my tire trailer...

Can you please post data concerning which year/model/transmission code that you removed the .68 gear set from?
Thanks.

Hi Mike, I think I've posted this about a dozen times already! No worries. Smile

From my research: the swappable 0.68 5th gear is in '80-'82 Audi 5000 Diesels w/trans codes: UF, MN, BMO, WV, UW, MO, MR, AAW, AAV, AAY, AAX, AMM, & AMN.

And the stock turbo 5th is a 0.83 and the NA 5th is a 0.78 right?

Stock Turbo is 0.83, but stock NA is 0.73.

Oh wow, I didn't think the NA was that tall, for some reason I thought it was a .078, so not that different than the turbo gear.

Ya, the difference between the 0.68 diesel and the 0.73 NA 5th is about 200 rpm at 70 mph by my calcs. There is a 0.64 in Europe, apparently. Probably worth about another 100 rpm at 70 mph.

I've been going by this link, it shows 0.73, is it wrong?

OK, that's what I thought. An improvement over the stock turbo gear, but not a whole lot different. A 0.73 would probably be a great 5th gear, too bad there isn't one made.

We either can get an NA 5th for a slightly taller gear, or the diesel gear for a super tall gear.

Let me know what you find out, if the NA really is an 0.78 I'll feel even better about finding the 0.68!
