It would cost more than the car is worth. If you want AWD - buy a car with it from the factory. Why do you want the extra traction? Just because or do you live in the snowbelt?

The engine is turbocharged and makes 350bhp @ 0.7bar. Extra traction - to use the power properly. No, I'm from South Africa.

sell it and buy what you've gotta have already!

350 is a lot of horse power for a FWD. The front end rises and the wheels won't hook up. 300 HP is about the max you could expect from a smaller car. Adding AWD to it would mean replacing the drive train. It might be better to put the engine into a AWD body if the transmission bolts up.

apply 4x4 stickers and you'll be fine! or get the big wide tires with the traction bars, a little lowering for weight dispense ,trust me you'll outperform the all wheel units every time. just carry some extra axels with ya.

There are not alot of AWD bodies available here in SA. Those that are available, are too expensive. I'd prefer adding AWD even if it means changing the drivetrain.

A TON of custom engineering and fabrication! I wonder what if anything you could modify from an R32 Golf. As I recall some years of those were VR6 with AWD.

Or find a good Audi Quattro (80, 90, GT, etc) and swap that engine into it! Either way...it's a huge project...but, if done well...would be a helluva story.

find a syncro gearbox, dunno if they fitted them to golf/jetta but passat and transporter for sure! Although syncro is not a full time awd but it still does the job

My vr6 passat has room as if it were meant to be awd. Not sure why, might do this to mine too. Need the turbo first:)
