    Preformabuilt. Thier a sponsor here. http://www.performabuilt.com/ go with a level 2 and it should be good for mild slightly wild apps. Get a stall and trans cooler as well.

    Thanks man. I got it to the shop and from all I know now is that I broke the transmission extension housing in 2 pieces. Tmr I will find out if it did anymore damage but this winter I will be upgrading the transmission.

    Sadly now demodded :(

    A4 or M6?

    Regardless of type it's probably the torque arm that broke the tranny tail shaft (or extension). I've seen it happen before. You might want to look into a relocation bracket or a short adjustable TA. The adjustable type allows you to set pinion angle. See my sig for what I use.

    Edit: Just noticed this is the automatic tranny section so you have an A4...
