    Lt1 to Audi transmission


    I have a Lamborghini Diablo on a Feiro chassis. My question is: What type of Audi 5000 transmission can I use? Can I use a quarto or does it have to be a two-wheel drive transmission? What year Audi transmission and does it need to a turbo? What gear shifter can I use? I already have the information from Kennedy engineering for the adapter plate. If anyone can help with this much needed information I would be grateful. Thanks for your responses in advance.

    1984 to 1988 Audi 5000 Front Wheel Drive. Turbo, non-turbo, diesel, whatever. Some are a little stronger than others but get whatever you can.
    The quattro model will not work unless you do many modifications inside. You basically need to weld the output shaft to the pinion shaft inside. It will be a weak spot for sure.

    Make sure you strengthen the case with a plate. If you don't upgrade it then buy a few extra transmissions until you do.

    The shifter can be made for a few pennies.

    Or you can spend a few hundred dollars on a cable system that will most likely melt on you when you start driving it hard. (experience)
