R32 engine swap
« on: July 10, 2019, 12:44:35 PM »
Right, so over the winter I want to engine swap my 2.0tfsi gti.
I would like to go down the r32 route, with a high possibility of turbocharging it. I’ve done my research for that so I’m okay in that area.
My main area that I need help with is the gearbox. As I want to keep this front wheel drive. Yes it will be a handful. Yes it will torque steer but this is how I want my car.
Now, is it just as simple as using the r32 flywheel and clutch and using my 6 speed Manuel gti gearbox? Or is there a different combination I’ll need to use. I have seen a kit that lets you use the r32 box, but blanks off the transfer case. Can I do this?
Another thing is if I do use the gti box will it fit in the engine bay? Is the r32 lump longer than the 2.0tfsi?

Thank you to anyone who can help me
