This makes me really want to do a manual swap, but i cant find a deal like you got. As of right now, it is cheaper to have someone rebuild my A4LD than to either do it myself, or to do a T-5 swap... i am in a tough situation

A T5 swap is alot cheaper than a rebuilt A4LD.

The minimum A4LD rebuild will cost $900+

Sleeper what did you do about the auto trans neutral/backup switch or does it plug into the 5 speed. I had a 5 speed car just never looked at that area. Some here may need to know. As of a 3 weeks ago knew where a 90 2.3 5speed in j-yard in KY. I can furnish phone number if someone wants to work it out with him.
