B5 S4 Auto - to -> Manual swap question. What trannys will fit i know the 01E is the right one but the problem is i couldn't find any one of these 01E in our country
instead i found a4 b5 1996 v6 2.6 quattro 5sp in junkyard
can i just swap the gearbox only to the s4 without modification or i have to swap it with the drive shaft and rear dif

So IF it can be done, big IF there, you would need both the transmission and the rear diff for sure. There is a good chance the driveshafts are different lengths also so I would grab that as well.
