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.
Here is my build so far:
Hone it Like You Own it...
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.
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.
