Would love having 4motion on my TDI..

But seems like I have enough on my plate with the engine build along with DSG conversion hehe. Maybe when that's done I should look into doing a 4motion coversion  :signLOL:   Would really support my +300bhp setup nice though :party:

Do you have a thread? Quick question - Is yours a five or three door?

It would make sense to fit a prop shaft and rear diff while your gearbox is out...  :wink:

I bet 300bhp TDI would be incredible in a MK5 4Motion, but if I had your engine and DSG I would consider fitting this into a 4Motion model to save the hassle of retrofitting the 4wd parts, subframe, fuel tank to a fwd one etc etc  :driver:

Would love to be able to install new engine, DSG and convert it to 4motion all at once ... But my wife  :mad: :mad: hehe.

New engine is finaly soon to be fitted along with new brakes, discs and pads all the way around - Will also change the intire rear subframe mounts, since I'll change rear hubs for alloy ones. (already got hubs and wishbones in alloy at the front)

In the fall hopefully I got time to do a full DSG and maybe a 4motion conversion if I can find the parts to do it the 4motion retrofit  :D The DSG conversion will happen no matter what since my clutch problerly wont last longer to the fall with the new engine  :evilgrin:

What's the availability of 4motion parts for you? What gearbox would you use with a 4motion conversion, as I assume you would need to change the DSG for a 4wd version? Sound like you need to do this along with 4wd at the same time (or at least that is what you tell you wife  :happy2:

Any DSG gearbox can be used for this, since you'll have the haldex sitting another place. So i bet you would need some other front shafts , rear subframe, all the haldex parts / drive train , another down pipe / exhaust , another fuel tank and some other parts.. It just took my breath writing down these parts needed to be changed in order to make the 4-motion happen :signLOL:

Maybe when everything else is finished on the car and I've enjoyed it, this could happen in the future :D  Right new, I'm still gathering parts for the DSG conversion and trying to plan having new rear fenders along with inner and outer panels swapped ready to be painted

Sounds like it will be easier to buy a 4motion and then install a DSG!  :signLOL:

Not when you live in Denmark  :signLOL:

Cars over here is more exspensive than in the UK... lets say you'll find a MK5 R32 in the UK for 9000
GPB - that same car here in Denmark will cost you more than 20.000 GPB

And since the cars are so exspensive people tempt to chose the ekstra unchecked when they are ordering a car  :confused: So not that many DSGs and even less with 4Motion hehe.

This is a quick thread update on recent maintenance work, below are two images of the turbo install on the 4motion. Not much space to get to the turbo with the transfer box and propshaft coupling in the way.

At 165k miles on the clocks, the original turbo had been sounding tired for the last 20k or so, and more so in the last couple of months. Option was a replacement turbo, either taking the car to a garage for a £1200+ bill or DIY and save a stack of money. DIY it was..

Now this is probably the worse DIY job I have had to do ever! The number of hard to get at bolts and hidden bolts/brackets was ridiculous and not forgetting the need to disconnect the propshaft first. I swear this engine must has been originally assembled by either small children or a Jedi  :smiley:

Anyway after 2 days underneath and climbing over the top of the engine, a new turbo has now been installed and it now drive like a dream away. One happy owner :)

@Lhasa Good job!

I have a new turbo sitting in my loft (along with S3 intercooler, IC pipe kit and complete clutch) and have been meaning to do this since last November, as I purchased the turbo on Black Friday... On the 4Motions, if you have an engine hoist it is much easier to just take the front off and remove the engine to do turbo or clutch. I'm allowing myself 2 days, but will hopefully have it done in 1, I'll let you know how it goes when I eventually get around to it, maybe I'll take some pics too. :)

Good luck with that. It took me 2 days to just to do the turbo lol

Unfortunately I do not have an engine lift, but with the engine removed a clutch change and turbo change should be a breeze  :happy2:
