I'm looking for a new transmission for my car and I was told that there's a difference in the transmission for a turbo vs the N/A. So I don't end up snagging a tranny from an 850/S70 that's not compatible, can someone tell me what the actual differences are? Is it actually physically different? Or are we talking M56L vs. M56H which (from what I understand) only differ in terms of gear ratio?<p>Thanks! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><br><b>Edit:</b> Also, getting more specific now: how about a tranny from a '93 850. Will it fit/work?

You would have to do a FULL swap to get an 850 transmission to work in our car.<p>Why all the hating on the stock one for the T5? Its very respectable.

Re: (Bender)

It's got a chunk missing and was leaking. Then I summarily destroyed it further by shearing a bolt. Also, the fluid came out black the first time I drained it, so I'm kind of worried about it.<p>So, new tranny for me for sure. Just trying to find the best/cheapest option.<p><br>What do you mean by "full swap" anyway? And can someone educate me on what to do about the dual-mass flywheel? Do I seriously have to buy a brand new one at $700+?

Re: (Bender)

That's what has me confused: I could have sworn I had read you can't/shouldn't resurface a dual-mass flywheel... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (Impulse922)

Yeah, well, I'm still trying to find out if anyone knows what's different between the M56 transmissions between models, years, and turbo vs. N/A...<p>Also, I'm not so sure that <i>my</i> gears aren't toasted. Although, it has never popped out of gear and it feels like it shifts smoothly (as far as I know <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> )

Yes it would be nice to put a single mass in, BUT it would cause a lot more stress on our drive line components (much more vibration transmitted via single mass).

Blech. Well, I'm beginning to believe that putting $2k~$3k into a new transmission and clutch is silly and I'd be best just topping it off every few months or whatever and driving it until it either dies or I can afford a new car...

well every month your topping it off with what new fluid?<p>a Quart of redline cost $13 bucks from ipd. assuming that it doesn't need a full quart of oil. Maybe a quart will last two months.<p>so 13* 6 bottles needed in a year is $78 plus time and shipping or gas money to run to the store<p>I don't know, I mean $100 bucks a year could be used for something else.<p>

Re: (Cjones16)

Nah, not every month. Maybe every 4, at the <i>most</i>. When it seemed to be leaking a lot for a week or so, I drained it and still got almost 2 full quarts out.<p>And, that 100 bucks a year you are referring to is in opposition to the one-time $2k~$3k I'd have to spend...

I am doing SingleMass Fly wheel 850R clutch <br>with a M56L in my XC<p>the m56 is the same in a 93 as its in 08 <br>The fly wheels might be different but trannys are the same. <p>Only issue I would see with output shafts being differnt you should be able to use the S60R clutchs for the dual mass wheels. <p>Give me a week and I will let you know LOL

<A HREF="http://www.vandsautodismantlers.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.vandsautodismantlers.com</A>/ had two M56LK's in their yard. I didn't go with them due to the cross-border issues/shipping. They quoted me $1,100US + 150US shipping to the border.

Indeed. It's one of those sites you don't always tell everyone about, because if you did, all the cool parts would be gone! A true treasure for car buffs in need of rare and random parts.....at the click of a button.
