Default My gearbox has failed, I need your help to choose a replacement. Audi 100TDi AAT

Hi guys. I'm in a bit of a bind. I'm in bavaria right now, and the diff has started screaming as I came off the autobahn.
Currently in the car is a 5 speed CUS gearbox.
I'd like to go 6 speed, every disaster is a chance to upgrade.

I've found that later B5 boxes are cheap and available. I've identified, I think, that my driveshafts and clutch will mate up to the newer boxes. Can anyone tell me if the speedo sensor is also the same? I have found an ARX and a FRF box locally, I think from B5 passats.
I have found a gearbox from an AEL and I'm certain that's a straight swap, but he wants 400 euros and the input shaft looks damaged at the needle roller bearing with the crankshaft.
Hopefully someone has tried this before.
Many thanks.
Jonathan

Check with Frans, he should be able to help answer your questions and he might even have the correct gearbox for you.
