      So I need some input... getting bored of my 225 motor. Wanted to do something cool with the car. Looking into a r32 motor and trans. Anyone know if the TT drive shaft will bolt to an R trans? Assuming the haldex units are similar. Anyone have any experience?

      Yep planning to do it within the week, screw waiting...also, the Gates blue timing belt I used whines like a supercharger, and after research its either normal, or the manual tensioner I used is too tight. I'll give it a week to break in and see what happens about the noise, I may have to adjust the 9a tensioner if it persists...(which means taking half that **** apart again )

      @ SteveAngry:
      Thanks! Yes, OSIR lip..I lucked out, bought it used but in great condition.
      Just sanded and painted Nimbus gray. Finish is decent.
      Fit is great actually, you can pretty much just snap it over the bumper and you are good to go!

      Totally feel your pain!

      It looks just like what I'm going for with my '02 rdstr. It's getting Eibach pro-kit springs, Koni FSDs, & 10mm spacers front, 17.5mm in the rear (w/OEM wheels). Sound close to what you're running?
