Gearbox upgrades

What have people used to upgrade the gear box on their c5???

Virtually all upgrades are new boxes from US builders like Level10 and 517. They usually include new Valve bodys, better torque converter and new gearbox clutch plates.

Some people are very happy with them and others say their boxes failed within a year so it still seems a bit hit & miss.

I think there was a kit being sold in the US if you fancied a DIY approach, but I can't remember for the life of me who did it.

As an aside, I'd think that there would be more European gearbox modders considering the German Box & German car. May be there is but they're just no well advertised???

Do a quick google search of :-

Cascade transmissions
Ace transmissions
517 transmission

As said, all u.s based but not really an issue eh!!

I did read somewhere about AMD doing gearbox upgrades but nothing's come their site doesn't work!!

This may be a really stupid question (I ask a lot of those), but has anyone approached ZF to see if they do a modern equivalent that would be a suitable replacement. Would that just be ridiculously expensive? Forum Index -> Audi S6 & RS 6 (C5) quattro
