Has anyone done this to there gti? Im faced with the choice of doing a conversion by cutting out the floor pan and welding in the 4wd floorpan, swapping the steering rack, fuel tank, new exhaust etc...

or stripping the 4wd justy and swapping all the bits over from my swift turbo to the justy

Im already using the Justy gearbox so all the mount are there already

just wondering what people have done and there experiences doing it

ah since you asked

you will need
1600 awd front drive shafts
justy/gti hubs are fine as long as your car isent as low as shaging your own sister
1600 awd clutch and flywheel best option is a dmw dave package

the viscous will need to be welded up to give a 50/50 split as most of the time stock justys are mostly fwd

either a lsd or weld up te rear diff also recommended

a set of garndis alloy engine diff mounts wouldent go a miss aswell as the stock ones are like elastic bands

im sure he will be on in a bit filling in anything ive missed

dont bother with a floorpan swap too much work the only reason people do that in aus is they dont have justys there cheap enough over here
