MkIV R32 swap

Speaking of the R32, we’re late to this particular party but just in time for winter. We’ve seen some epic builds, and we think this ranks pretty high on up there, especially in terms of everyday practicality: a Minnesotan has converted a MkIV Jetta wagon into, essentially, an R32 wagon via MkIV R32 donor parts. God this is impressive!

The owner, enjoying the spoils of his labor:

There is something very strange, crazy, and beautiful about seeing power being sent to the rear wheels of what by all appearances should be an ordinary, grocery-getting Jetta, not to mention hearing that pissed off VR6 snarl emanating from under the bonnet.
