    FOR SALE (finally): 6 Speed 01E Adapter Kit for the C5 RS6

    FOR SALE:

    This kit adapts the 01E transmission to the RS6 block and crankshaft.

    For $2,100 USD, the kit includes:

    Transmission adapter plate
    Racing starter with custom nose (uses stock wiring harness)
    Aluminum flywheel
    Hardware kit
    Detailed installation instructions



    This kit was professionally developed by an experienced engineering firm via 3D laser scanning and CMM technologies to ensure accuracy, safety and rigidity. The adapter and starter nose are CNC machined from 6061 aluminum.

    The kit must be used in conjunction with the following OEM or aftermarket pieces (not included) for a complete mechanical conversion from an automatic to manual:

    From the C5 A6 2.7T or C5 S6 manual transmission models, the drive shaft, front axles, transmission brackets, clutch pedal and all associated mechanical components, slave cylinder and all associated hydraulic components, reverse switch and VR sensor can be used

    The transmission mounts and three (3) M12 transmission to engine mounting bolts are retained from the C5 RS6

    The flywheel is designed with the appropriate dimensions to mate with the 01E and use the C5 2.7T or C5 S6 clutch and pressure plate and throwout bearing. So you would need to source a clutch and pressure plate to your liking based off of these OEM modes for reference for reference.

    There are many different variations of the 01E than can be selected for use. The final drive of the front differential will dictate which rear differential is required.

    Please note, and it's been stated before: This kit only facilitates the mechanical mating of the RS6 motor to the 01E. On my end, the ECU modifications are not available, but hopefully will be in due time.

    Quantities of the CNC components are currently underway and my lead times for flywheels and starters are approximately 2 - 3 weeks.

    Shipping will be quoted separately for each inquiry and delivery can be made to anywhere on the globe where the RS6 exists.

    Pricing for a steel flywheel option will be available very soon, too.

    Please feel free to PM me or post with any questions.

    Wow congrats Steve, a lot of ingenuity behind this! Hopefully this will keep the community from giving up on these beasts and a much needed breath of fresh air regarding modifications.

    It'll be a wheel barrow but a lot less than $20K-$40K companies charged in the past. Nice job on the kit! Has anyone confirmed if ANY of the A6/S6 manual trans will be able to handle the brutal torque of the 4.2 V8 TT?

    If it's the same trans as the B5 S4 then the answer is yes. Champion Audi had ZERO tranny issues when they used it for the World Speed Challenge GT RS 6s.

    AMD in Washington has a 600whp b5 S4 on pump gas that runs the 01e and it isnt having any issues. Obviously a good clutch will need to be used for the RS6. The best way to do this is to find a parts car a6 for everything else. This would leave a lot of room for bigger turbos and some higher flowing manifolds!! Maybe I can do this someday lol. Great job on the work again though.

    steve, will the steel flywheel be resurfacable?

    cost wise, do you think it'll be half of the aluminum?

    Steel flywheel is actually going to add $125 to the kit.

    The manufacturer of the steel flywheel states that it can be resurfaced, but it's discouraged.

    just wondering about the cost as since these flywheels are custom, we'd be screwed down the road if we need a replacement.

    sounds like you'll also need the front axles.

    is a new driveshaft confirmed? out of a A6 2.7tt?
    how about modifying our current one? is it because it's carbon?

    nevermind -
    "From the C5 A6 2.7T or C5 S6 manual transmission models, the drive shaft, front axles, transmission brackets, clutch pedal and all associated mechanical components, slave cylinder and all associated hydraulic components, reverse switch and VR sensor can be used"

    anyone got any part numbers for some of these items?
    is the clutch pedal assembly separate from the brake pedal? or does it come together with a brake pedal as a package?

    I'm working on this Terry.

    I've done it on my S6 and it's still somewhat fresh in my mind. I'll be scrubbing through ETKA tomorrow.

    There are also many other things I'm contemplating. Cooling the transmission a-la the euro S6 or the allroad. Or can we divert the stock RS6 trans cooling to additional water cooling? Either way, it will require custom lines, fittings, etc.

    As for the steel flywheel, if it needs to be replaced, I could possibly keep stock of them or direct you to the manufacturer.

    How difficult would it be to do a 6 spd TIP trans conversion?
