    From Andreas Taufner in Austria.
    You can try and contact him on Instagram. I have been told he isn't making them any more but that may not be the case.
    Or you can get them here:

    Hi, is your car equipped with haldex? Im in the middle of the same swap, dq500 to seat leon fr 1p 2.0tsi, originally fitted with mq350.
    Iím going to have it only fwd until eventually sourcing a rear subrame, but i dont know for sure if it will run fine leaving the cardan shaft out of the ecuation

    Honestly I don't know the answer to that question...but my feeling is that the mechatronic won't really care...it will just be spinning there without any mass attached. That is as long as you can modify the DSG software to ignore the missing messages from the Haldex.

    Hello, great work!

    few questions about the conversion

    what modifications are needed for the bell housing?

    What is the adapter plate thickness, did you measure it?

    are the haldex gear ratios same on your vehicle as in dq500?


    Good info on the flywheel, no need for custom part there

    I didn't do the bell housing modification. There are companies that offer these services.
    Haldex is not changed. It doesn't have gears, just clutches. The rear diff is not changed.
    Do you mean the bevel box/transfer case? That is changed to the DQ500 version.

    okay, I try to find out the thickness for the adapter, I have a friend who is able to fabricate such adapter.

    I mean rear axle gear ratio, does it differ to the new transfer case, do rear wheels spin same speed as front wheels, does the haldex spin all the time?

    Next time I'm under the car I will measure the thickness.
    The rear diff doesn't need to change. There is no issue with the Haldex.

    good to know about the rear diff
    DQ500 retrofit-20190822_102144-1-jpg
    actually came to my mind, is the adapter and bell housing done so that same amount of housing is machined off as the adapter is thick?

    Looking at the pictures you have shared, it might be soDQ500 retrofit-dq500-jpg

    Yes it's to come up to the same point.
    You need to have your fabricator look at both bell housings and also pics of the available products and I'm sure they can figure it out

    Hey mate, awesome work. Today i finished to install a dq500(RS3 8P) in my Golf MK5 (and did a FWD conversion), and i was surfing the net to find out if somebody did the same thing. And i came across your Ross Tech thread. Awesome work soon I will do a thread too, to help others.
