      this is not entirely true. spacers from ECS work with VR6 spindles for TT and R32 brakes. But when using G60 spindle with VR6 hub spacers wont work because the caliper needs to be move in the oposite direction and only way is to machine the caliper carrier down couple of mm. I dont remember exactly now but im pretty sure it was 2.5-3mm

      Q: Where can I source new bushings for a Syncro "rear end" since the stock rubber bushings are all outdated, cracking and are completely sucky.
      A: I was able to find them here http://www.powerflex.co.uk/pro....html. These are polyurethane though and supposively the price isn't worth it. You would probably be better off just getting stock replacements. (dont have the part number sorry)

      Not really no. Different tire sizes on the same differential can load the bearings different and cause bearing/gear/diff failure, but its a slow going process, its not instantenous. Using different tire sizes front to back may make the rear end power "slightly off" but I highly doubt you would notice a difference. HOWEVER, In any "AWD" car, it's best not to risk differential faillure, so run the same time size. However, if in a bind, a couple weeks SHOULDN'T kill it (make no promise, it's really all dependent on many different variables.

      Q: Is the center diff open?

      The "center diff" is a Viscous Coupler meaning that it will engage the rear differential when then fluid in the "center" diff binds up from there being too much of a speed difference between sides of the differential. The driveshaft to the center diff does not spin the "center" diff until there is slippage on the front wheels. The delay is milliseconds so the AWD and CENTERDIFF engage immediately as the CENTERDIFF notices a speed differential between the front of the centerdiff and the rear of it and which engages the back end of the centerdiff which, in return, turns the REAR diff. There ya go, thats how it all works.

      Q: Has anyone ever tried to use the audi tt rear beam and trailing arms (independent multilink) on a mk2/3 for a haldex swap? Would it still work correctly if it had to be shortened to fit under a mk2/3? (i.e. make the links shorter)

      not sure if this has been asked yet, but i scanned the whole FAQ and didnt come up with a clear answer
      is the rear diff of a b3 syncro open or is it limited slip, i do not care about the front i just wanna know if power will go to both the rear wheels in a rwd only setup????

      It's an open rear diff w/ a viscous coupler infront of it. meaning that the rear will only engage if the front starts to slip and its near an instantaneous transfer of power.

      I'm in S.A and VW never released the Golf 3 syncro so spares is none existing. We do have however alot of the Audi S3 2002's. I do understand that this is essentially haldex and that it's the same but will the Rear subframe fit the golf 3. Yes I know I have to modify brackets mounting points maybe etc. but won't the subframe be to wide for the body?

      From this post, it sound's like you are asking "Can I use the subframe from a 2002 Audi S3?"
      With enough time and money anything is possible. A better and easier (and probably more cost effective) solution would be to find a syncro rear subframe and do the haldex conversion listed earlier in the FAQ.
      Again the Mk3, with the brackets, is a direct "bolt-in" (as far as getting the rear subframe in the car). You'll still need to figure out how to brace the rear diff as there is a mounting place in the middle. (see picture)

      1) Please read the ENTIRE FAQ thread

      2) You'll need a G60 02C (4cyl passat syncro) transmission

      3) Read the ENTIRE FAQ THREAD, please

      Audi TT rear trailing arms will NOT "bolt-in"....they can be made to work, but with extreme fabrication. this is how i did my Haldex swap.

      if you are in the Southeast i could point you to the shop that did the fab work for me. But if you can source a pan that will be much easier

      That's kind of what I am wondering. I have seen the r32 floor pans grafted into golfs and jettas. I was wondering if the tt floor pan would work as well?

      "technically" it will, but there is more fabrication required due to the difference in length

      Are the 02A and 02M transfer cases different? are they equaly as strong? I am currently using a 02J in my mk3 with a 6 speed SQS dog gear set.. i want to reuse those gears for my haldex swap. Would i be able to stuff all that into a 02A syncro case minus the diff obviously.

      You will need a 02c tranny from a passat. 02M is completly diffrent. The problem that you will find yourself in is if your doing a haldex swap thenyou will have to find a transfer case from a Skoda Octivia (very hard to find)

      Well, my plan right now is to throw my dog gears into a 5 speed TTQ case with a new peloquin, should do the trick i believe. It's based on the 02J correct?

      ok, i understand i'll have to run the octavia angle drive with the haldex rear end to match the gear ratios. If i change the ring and pinion will it not throw everything off?
