Automatic transmission

Hi everyone, I have a seized up 915 trans, I also have a I believe the seller said, it was from a 912 trans. I have pieces that I want to build a posi four speed Quaife trans. And lastly there is the three speed type III automatic transmission.

At the time, I was conversating by email with a builder in Australia, his thing was type III VW automatic.
Since I want the engine to be turbo, there is no vacuum signal for first/second shift point. I removed the vacuum modulator, and had a fitting made. The fitting enabled the attachment of a mechanical modulator.

Lastly I have read that the type three auto diff and housing can be morphed together with a Audi 5000 torbo trans, in doing so, would make for a strong automatic, you input would be appreciated

Hi

Aaron the auto guy in Australia has nearly finished his drag notch, Im sure he will have lot more data when its running. We are both running a VW drag event in a few weeks time, he's really trying to have his notch finished for that.

Good evening, I'm all over the place with this transmission subject. I have the time, presently, I'm trying to envision my third and keeper 1303.

I'm not sure if it will have a EZ 30, or the three liter type IV twin turbo. My car, I want it to be a SoCali freeway flyer. Yes a definite GS, but simply a bad a$$ street car.

This type II automatic I have read is very strong, it can take the abuse. My need is for low rpms,speeds up to 90 mph. Quaife sells a ATB unit for the type II automatic. I did start on trying to adapt it for mechanical modulation. I was trying to learn which parts can be borrowed from other trans applications. I don't want to make money on this, just build myself a strong trans.

I still have issues on how builders are relocating the frame horns. This is one of the reasons I won't get the G-50, I've seen builders having to heavily mod their axle tube. I'll need to revisit Walter's G-50 tread.

If you could share some inside on the type II auto build it would help.
