If someone were planning on acquiring/building a gearbox for a TDI 4motion, what would be the best way to acquire/create one?

 

  • Buy factory-built 'box from a vehicle from continental Europe.
  • Find the unicorn OEM 'box from an A3 8L TDI Quattro in the UK (given one also needs the rear diff and driveshafts, this is possibly the best option?)
  • Use a 1.8T Quattro or VR6 'box as a host and swap in the gear trees from a 2WD TDI box.

 

Please note, this isn't a "do my work for me" thread. I'm doing my own research and planning, but I'm interested in getting input from others as well.

Bora, not Golf.  :P

 

Going over to Europe isn't going to be something I can do for some time, so keeping an eye out for an 8L TDIq box is probably going to be the best bet.

eBay it get all the parts from the same car and sling the lot on... or even better buy a complete a3 8L... that means you got all the parts in one go.

Yeah, I've been leaning towards "strip a donor" as I'll be needing quite a few bits.
