I would assume not unless you plan on taking out the t/case and having a driveline made for it. Then you'd be 2 wheel drive.
I'd find a different trans.

Just go ahead and throw a manual in it. It's an easy swap. Plus the A4LD is a piece of s**t!!! Throw an M5OD-R1 in there and you'll never have tranny problems... at least not for about 100,000 miles.
