I have an 01 fwd 1.8t and would like to convert it to quattro... I found another 01 quattro in a junk yard that was hit in the front. Anyone know what all is involved doing the swap? Is there a certain diff and trans that I need? Any help is greatly appreciated!

It isn't possible without a huge amount of work. The rear floorpan's are different, rear suspension is completely different. Exhaust gas tank, etc, etc. It's all different. This isn't a bolt up thing. The chassis is different.

It would be easier to buy the junkyard car, and cut and weld the front clip from yours onto it and drop your engine in. This is not a suggestion, just a comparison for the amount of work that would need to be done. Suggestion would be to sell your car and buy a quattro.
