    I'm sure there are better choices, but I saw this one and started brain storming. Has this transmission ever been tried before or how does it compare to the 5000 version. Does not look to be a great difference between the two.I was hoping some one had some back ground on it.

    I have one in my garage. It is slightly smaller in every aspect. I don't think it would hold more than 200hp. It has a smaller input shaft, output flanges, bellhousing bolt pattern and shape.

    The late 01X box is six speed and has the extra strength embedded into the casing,bearings etc. This 01E box needed extra bracing which was/is available through engineering shops 'in the know' this strengthened the diff casing if memory serves me right, the 01X handles an S8 v8 without too much trouble. For what it's worth std transaxle setups use the audi boxes, now the new stronger A5 box is becoming available I would presume the g50 box will become obsolete, due to it's shear price.
    I know nothing of the 4000 series box
    Just googled it, this may be a little weak for the big v8's

    G50 is expensive.

    also, it needs to be flipped internally to work properly in the setup we typically use them in the murci and diablo engine bay.

    The 01E is probably the strongest of the Audi boxes and can be used without any modifications. The 016 is the one that needed the bracing to prevent the pinion bearing from breaking the rear of the center housing. The G50 can be run upside down without any internal changes. The vent needs to be installed where the drain plug was though.

    Thanks for the input guys. It looks like this trans may be to weak for what I am looking to do.
