So I should be good if I get one from an mk5/6 R32, Golf R, TT, A3 etc? how about mk7? I just want to confirm the years of Gen 4 Haldex, but that may only apply to the rear diff and haldex unit (as long as ratios did not change between generations). If anyone could confirm this, that would be great. I'd like to make a one stop shop and take everything from the same car if possible
      The picture that I posted above is of an Audi TT 2.0T TSI DSG transfer case (or angle drive, whichever you prefer). So yes, you can use the DSG unit just fine.
      The only other component you need to interface the two parts is the differential. You will need an AWD differential to mate up to the transfer case properly.

      As for the transmissions that have the mounting holes, I've been taking a look at all of the Mk5, Mk6, B6, Audi A3 and Mk2 TT vehicles that have come through the shop as work is done on them.
      From what I can tell, FSI/TSI Mk5s and 2006-2009 Passats and CCs all have the mounting holes for the transfer case.

      Your question earlier about the Tiguan compatibility, the rear subframe on that car and the differential will not work.
      I have had the fortune (misfortune?) of trying out the different rear subframes, rear differential assemblies and prop shafts on my CC.
      The rear subframe and differential assembly from a A3/S3/Golf R are all the same dimensional-wise. However, the Tiguan, Passat and CC rear subframes and differentials are different from them.
      Think of it this way, all the smaller chassis vehicles use the same parts and all of the larger chassis vehicles have the same parts.

      No problem! We actually just finished putting my transmission back together and everything functions as though it was an AWD transmission from the get-go.
      Now to just wire everything up and figure out any ECU issues that arise.

      I believe that your only options are going to be those and the Golf R. However, I haven't really researched the specifics on that part of the swap for an "A" chassis car.
      Most of my research has been into the B6 chassis, but there is a lot of overlap obviously. From what little I have researched on it, you will need to modify the body in order to complete the swap on a FWD Mk5/6 vehicle though.
      The B6 chassis is a bit easier since everything bolts right up from a 3.6 4motion vehicle.

      For those looking for more information on the transmission side of the swap, please feel free to check out my build thread. I've recently updated it with some more information and pics about that part of the swap.
