01E is the trans of choice for any high power 1990/2000s Audi to swap in. Lots of info on Motorgeek of people swapping them into their turbo cars. Axles break before the trans breaks.

Most measurements from average of 3 or more readings. This is a draft for a custom flywheel with Tilton 7" button clutch between a 01E and a 4.2 v8 40v engine with the 8 bolt pattern.

photobucket is pretty bad too. I prefer flickr. But anything is better than imageshack

Default small update

no further progress, im looking to buy a house so I can start working on this and enjoy this hobby!!!
i have rethought the tranny design. with the feedback some of you left about its strength, I gave it a thought. so instead of making the bell end steel ill pour it in aluminum. it will just be beefed up, it will be solid as opposed to the gussets and ribbing, so basically very very fat. the lightening cuts inside will be filled also, ill just machine for the shafts, gears, selectors, oil galley.
