      I talked to Peloquin, it looks like the diffs themselves are the same, so I'm thinking that grabbing the front haldex from a TT with a few extra pieces should be enough to convert the car over.

      Same here. I have some feelers out for a totaled TDI to swap with my existing 3.2L and tranny. Ideally, I would do a near even swap. TDI's are being tuned to produce some decent HP and awesome torque these days. My R should still be a pretty solid performer except with almost twice the MPG after the swap. Plus I can run it on veggie oil. Anyone with info an a wrecked TDI drop me a line.

      Here is my build so far:

      Hi to all,

      New to the Forum but have been watching this thread for some while now.

      We recently built a Jetta R, taking a 2007 Jetta 2.0TFSI and putting a hot R engine in, completed its running 343 proven on the dyno. See video below.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vaSnmsaaTrk

      The car is running TTRS front brakes with PFB discs and pads, KW V3 suspension, H&R front and rear roll bars, full decat Miltek 3" exhaust (turbo back), APR intake, MRC HP fuel pump, RS Fabrications fully bolted to welded base plates cage, MK 6 steering wheel, Passat LED touch screen NAV and US spec rear boot lid.

      After being fed up of having little or no grip in the weather we are having I have decided to start the Synchro mission.

      So, with the information here, the rear end of an S3, plenty of ETKA and Dealership help, we think this can be done.

      Will also keep you informed and pictures.

      Cheers

      The only reason it is not done yet is my '06 Jetta is my DD and I cannot take it off the road for more than weekend. But I got the '85 Jetta TD recently that will be used as my spare DD and as soon as I fix few urgent issues in it, the 4Motion swap has to be completed.

      Maloshak, just to let you know:

      As of today, 4 successful 4wd have been built on the mkv platform, on the 2.5l engine.
      1 by unitronic and 3 were done with united motorsports. If you have any questions, contact them.

      I'd way prefer to have an awd 2.0t a3, if its doable I'd be interested for sure! I love this engine but with fwd it just spins all it's power away.

      I have recently bought the Tiguan propshaft center bearing support. I will try to see if it will fit in next time the car is jacked. If I could use it, the only thing to fabricate would be exhaust...

      I've been tracking this thread since I bought my brand new 2008 golf 5cyl.
      Now I have had my 2010 TDi for 4 years now and I want to do this mod.
      It's got 80k now so it is about time to void my warranty. lol

      I noticed that my 6sp manual has screw holes for the transfercase (or whatever it is called).
      I wonder if there were a little modding, can we use the origional tranny without replacing it?

      Also Getting my car shipped to korea... so I have no limit on what modds I can do. lol
      NO HOLDS BAR!

      Just don't think I can bring it back to the states... especially since CA requires clean diesels. lol
      Oh well, it is a 1way ticket for this car. I will get rid of it before I come back.

      Maybe I will get the new VW truck here and try to take it back to the states if the states never sells them.

      ANYWHOS... I WANNA DO THIS MOD!!!

      W have 4motion golfs 6s and 7s but no stickshifts in this country.
      not sure of the golf 5s

      Wonder if I can find a wrecked one...
      Wondering if the parts for the golf5 and 6 are simular.

      Any info?

      (If it has already been covered, please refer me to the post page and number)

    29. 08-09-2013 08:11 AM #379
      Oh... and BTW....

      UPDATED PHOTOS!!!! I wanna see what you have done!
      Did you figure out the gastank and the spare tire container?

      korea doesnt use a sparetire... too dangerous. the insurance company justs tows your car to a shop.

      So I guess I can crop mine.
      cheap to do so over here i guess...

      Been lightly researching this topic lately. Skimmed the first few pages on here. Anyone up to date on this topic that can give me a quick run through? Is it as easy as it appears to be at first glance? Rough end cost of conversion? I've got a 5 speed manual, want to convert to 6 speed AWD.
