Thanks for clarifying. I wasn't able to purchase the TT with the DWX in time. I think it was for the the best. I'll try to find a 225TT and do a complete DRW gear swap. I'll purchase a FWD DRW transmission and wait for the right donor car to come around.PoorKing:
Don't confuse the "gearset", ie: the cogs that mesh together to transmit rotation, with the ring and pinion.
The ring gear is on the differential, and both output shafts in the 02M are the pinions.
It may be possible to use a newer 02Q transmission as a source for both gearset and ring and pinions to build an AWD transmission,
then the change would be to remove the existing ring gear from the AWD transmission, use the ring gear from the new trans, then swap in the input and both output shafts.
If you have the TT transmission and just want a diesel friendly ring and pinion(s), then both of the output shafts will need to be rebuilt to transfer the TT cogs onto the new pinion shafts. Fair bit of work.
I don't believe there were any AWD B5's here in The States. Also, there are a ton of Haldex A2's pushing 1000hp+ and they seem to be holding up just fine.I would think you would be better off going to a B5 platform and then you have torsen instead of haldex. Problem is you are dealing with more weight but the platform would likely be better suited for that power/speed level. Plus AWD B5 parts actually exist in decent numbers in the US.
