    Ive both boxes in the garage, I'll look at them tomorrow to see if they're similar. I'm sure though the ratios are very different.

    sorry about the delay getting back but couldnt get on the site, firefox kept saying site was harmful and wouldnt let me on. anyone else?? back to g/boxes, they both look exact same and inner cv seem to match up but cant check the outer one so splines could be different.

    The ratios WILL be different though

    At 80mph at 1.8T is doing about 3500rpm in 5th for example

    2000 A4 1.8T Sport Quattro Avant, Berry Pearl
    2000 A4 1.8T Sport Quattro Saloon, Black-ish
    1997 S4 - PPC £999 Challenge Track Car Build
    TD5 Land Rover Defender build
