    Thread: mk5 Jetta/Golf 4motion conversion findings

    1. 09-02-2008 02:31 AM #76
      Just curious on how you will activate your stock ECU to think it is now running the haldex? Have you compared the code on your stock ECU to a ECU that is 4motion/haldex on? If it almost the same and only a two digit change i.e. 03 34 23 4f 23 etc and you need only one number to be switch like 0F to be substitute to 07 will your ECU accept the change? I will be very interested to see if you have done this...

      ECU has (to my knowledge) nothing to do with Haldex. Haldex has its own independent controller that uses signals from misc sensors over CAN-BUS. The ECU does not even have to know about the existence of Haldex. This is based on what I have read about Haldex. The reality might be of course different.

      This is pretty cool - I've been asking around trying to get more information on this... definitely confirmed the 4motion setup from a MkV R32 doesn't mate up to the 2.0T GTI DSG... however, with the new 2009 Audi A3 2.0t Quattro... Anyone have ideas on whether this could be the ultimate "bolt-on" project?

      maloosheck, can you get me the DSG part# from the Audi TT-S
      Starting parts hunting next week, aiming for whole R32 drivetrain, rear floor pan and fuel tank, minues the trans
      I wish the FWD DSG can be tapped for the transfer case, hopefully I find out next week

      Is it already in ETKA? If so, I can probably try to find it.

      Are you located in NA? So far I have heard about ONE totalled mk5 R32...

      If nothing has changed since my '05 FWZ transmission - you CANNOT tap transfer case to FWD transmission. The main reason is the AWD tranny has 2 separate output shafts on the right side: one for the front right axle (internal) and one for the rear drive shaft (external). Which means the case is most likely different and so is the differential.

      I wonder how much it weighs

      I will do the weight comparison when I will be installing all my parts.

      FWD DSG, you can see the casted 4 holes for the T-Case


      AWD DSG, drilled holes


      FWD DSG side view, grinding that bulge down


      AWD DSG, side view


      T-Case, side view,


      I need to see whats underneath the right axle flange on the FWD DSG, a sticking shaft or a shaft housing like the AWD DSG?

      That I do not know. But if you remove the flange, you should see. However, I highly doubt the differential has that second shaft output.

      It is going pretty well. Tracked the flywheel/clutch kit, now looking for front axles and shaft (found some, negotiating the price ). Everything is in EU, so I am looking for some inexpensive transportation options. If I get the axles/shaft next month, I will try to send everything to get it before Xmas. And swap the tranny asap.
      Man, I am going to need you here to help me out with all that crap when I collect everything.

      Added above. But the part no. are different depending on the market. I would go and ask about KNN. This is the one used with 2.0L CDM engine (265HP).

      Finally!!!!!, the 200hp 2.0TFSI is available with 4motion and DSG
      Check the 09 Audi TT, they list it as an option on Audiusa.com and Audi.de
      Can't wait to see a salvage one

      I know it does not have anything to do with the 4M, but here is some info: 5MT starter is different than 6MT starter. Plus 6MT diesel starter is different than 6MT gasser starter. Diesel starter needs twice as much juice to start the engine...

      Haldex + Rear diff:

      Wow they really cleaned that up and made it clean and modular. The bolt-on transfer case seems like a no-brainer. That splined shaft adaptation for the axle output is a great idea.
      Cars are destined to become as self explanatory as Legos.

      Update:
      Just got few bolts today and attached Haldex to subframe. Over the weekend I will try to attach the rear axles and what is more important transfer case to transmission. There is only one problem: there is one bolt attaching right axle flange to the differential that requires super long Allen M6 bit: 10-12 inches long. I need to ask at local VW if I could borrow one for few minutes.

      You should be good friends with the local dealers by now... Hopefully they will oblige and let you borrow it so you wont have to buy it for one time use...
      Keep us posted, and good luck

      I really wish, but it is not that easy. I am not a frequent visitor at the dealership
