Has anyone ever done this or is it even possible with an array of modifications?
Ravan thanks for the reply! but if i already have a NA 5speed would i needno, v160 IS the 6speed from the turbo MKIV, the turbo MKIII tranny is the r154, thats the 5 speed.
for the r154 swap i think i heard something about boostlogic putting together a kit for around 2500 bucks which includes EVERYTHING you need to bolt it right up, only thing you need to provide is the r154 core i belive.... dont take my word for it....
the v160 6speed varies in cost.... i THINK its 4grand new, might be more, but thats just for the tranny, its gona cost you around 1000 dollars just for the shifter assembly and the slave cylinder and all that, plus you need a TT driveshaft, TT Flywheel, and TT clutch, if keeping the NA rear end you'll need the TT Companion Flange. if not keeping the NA rear end , you'll need about another 1400 bucks for a USED TT diff.
SupraSE997, i thought that the axel had to be replaced too, but there are no people that have tried running the NA axles with the TT diff and siad that it works just fine. Although i dont see a point in keeping them..... if you paying 1300+ for a diff might as well spend that extra 200 bucks to get the TT axels just to be on the safe side and not half-ass a project
