      Hey guys, I am thinking about doing a AWD set up on the coupe. The engine that is going in the car is MKIII 3.0L VR6T that is fully built!

      Here is the car...
      http://s11.photobucket.com/albums/a1...5782611052.mp4

      I am looking to buy a whole R32 shell that also includes:

      -linkage & shifter
      -4 ABS Sensors
      -ABS Control Module
      -ESP Control Module
      -The two Combination Sensors (Accelerometers)
      -Steering Angle Sensor
      -Undamaged rear floor pan (salvaged title on shell)
      -Drive shaft
      -Rear end w/ suspension, diff, controller, brake lines, etc.
      -Exhaust w/ cats
      -Gas Tank w/ evap
      -Fuel pump and sending unit
      -Heat shields
      -O2M transmission


      I have no problem doing all of the sheet metal work on the rear. What I am concerned about is what electrical work am I going to need to make the haldex work???

      Any idea's would help!!!!

      right on!

      that is the perfect situation for a swap! sounds like a long weekend road trip!

      if didnt have a project car already i would buy that shell and build a monster 1.8t and make it a nasty track car!
