      I want to do this with my DSG transmission. It would be nice if I could use my stock transmission and swap the differential to an AWD version.
      I have some ideas that I will know the answer to in a couple weeks as I do my swap but it def isnt just bolt on as the bellhousing has a protruding flange for the cv flange seal on that side. Also as you said you would need the awd diff.

      What wires go where? I know on the MK4 platform, adding (the wiring) haldex is easy enough, just two or three wires into the ABS unit...

      The wiring is not the issue, that is simple and is already described in this thread. The integration is done over the system arhitecture, the communication with the engine, ESP and other controllers runs over CAN. The Haldex is deeply integrated into the vehicle electronics.

      I personally haven't done it yet but I believe the haldex part is easy on the mk5/6 but on the mk6 I think you need a certain abs module and gotta run wires to the cluster for fuel gauge stuff

      I must have missed that part. I'll review it later
