    Hi guys

    was wondering if anyone knows will a gearbox from a S3 8l 210 bhp amk 2001
    be compatible on a audi tt 225 bam 2001 ? i know both cars use a 6 speed box, just not sure about the bhp difference
    thanks in advance.

    they share gearboxes across models so I don't see why not. My 2001 S3 AMK has a dqb gearbox code which is an option on an 01 TT... an FHB gearbox would probably be fine also

    Why would the extra bhp affect the compatibility of the gearbox

    While it fits I should have mentioned there are a couple of things to watch out for... pre 2001 02M boxes use a different connection for the gear change cables... they have a ball and socket setup rather than the later ones that use a post and clip setup... this is no biggy as this part can be swapped over... the other difference is the transfer box... earlier boxes use an alloy bracket to secure the transfer box to the engine block... later boxes use a steel one... you need to make sure you use the right bracket for the box rather than the one you have currently on your car as it may be different...

    Both 2001 AMK (S3) and BAM (TT) used changeover kit from the APY/APX engine codes and I have seen both types of gearbox setup in these cars... mines a late 2001 (51) AMK and I have the later setup but have seen other AMK's with the previous stuff...

    The box itself will fit fine but just be aware of these differences

    the FMN is an 02Y 6 spd gearbox, the DQB is a 02M 6 psd gearbox.
