In the end it is your body , do what you want with it !just remember that the quality of workmanship and attention to details determines the end results.

Apparently pre-S4's are a lot easier. No mention has been made of:

different flywheel;
longer/shorter torque tube;
gearbox mounting;
blue hose from the master vacuum system;
other gotchas?

I have a rear cross member from a 78, and there appears to be mounts for both types of gearboxes...

I'd say do it! I'm interested as well being that I have all the parts.

Nothing happens. The hatch drops at that point, and moves out the way leaving plenty clearance. Will take a pic tomorrow. OK?
