    Hello guys.

    Need some advice.
    The ideea is to convert a 3.7 non quattro to a 3.7 quattro. ('96 model).
    I found out the transmissions are different between the 2 models. Is there a way to instal the quattro tranny and to make it work with the ECU of the non-quattro? (i mean recoding the ECU to be aware that it has a quattro transmission)

    Second of all, the transmission i have, (the quattro one) is a CML code, and as far as i discovered, this type of transmission was installed on 4.2q modells, not 3.7q.
    So, if i take the whole wiring harness including TCM, the flywheel and everything (transmission mounts, etc) is it possible to make it work witn the 3.7 engine? The CML tranny is 4 speed, and the non-quattro originally installed was 5 speed. (Therefore if it would fit, i presume recoding the ECU to work with the new TCM would be necessary)

    Any sugestions?
    Help appreciated.
