Has anybody fitted a TT Quattro gearbox into a 1.8T Lupo?

I'm in the process of doing a rwd conversion with a stroked 1.8 to 2.1. I'm thinking that I'm not going to put the power down very well so thinking of TT/S3 box & running gear but wondered if this has been done before.

Sure i read the build thread for that a while back, think it was A3 quattro running gear and the Lupo shell modded to fit it.

Yeah I actually read about that one, that's the only one I seen whilst searching. Hopefully looking for somebody to ask a few questions though. Thanks anyway as it's quite an informative read. ??

I just don't think 500-600bhp will accelerate very well as just a rwd even though the engine will only sit slightly in front of the rear wheels.

four wheel drive with the engine in the back?

 

Yeah like a Porsche 911 C4S!

haha no thinking of putting the engine in the front with TT/S3 drivetrain/Haldex unit.

I've already got the rear subframe mounted in for rwd but thinking outside the box before I start more work.

phenomenal output, no room for a towbar at the back though which is a shame as it could pull a tank;)

I'm 99% sure I've seen somebody else do this but cant find any pics even on any other forum!

What is it with you and towbars?

physically anything can be done.

you can put a 1.8t in the front, mount a haldex system out back, bolt Tt swingarms on and shorten every single shaft so that it all fits.

it isn't worth doing, there's a lot of work doing it properly, not just a welder on a driveway job.

you've already killed it by chopping the floor out.

weld in a standard one, fit a tdi engine and towbar then sell it to the penguin.

Seen this at Leeds VW Fest a few years back.
