  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Ive had the idea of converting a FWD B5.5 30v 2.8L V6 5Speed to a RWD; in my head for a while now, either from taking parts from older Audi's OR Skoda's. Ive seen a RWD B5.5 before, but there was zero information about it. I honestly do not know if there is space to fit a drive shaft thru the...
  2. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    i have read a ton of threads on this but just wanted to know one main thing. im doing a FWD to rwd conversion to my gifted 99 passat. i do come from a very extensive drift build life and this is the route i want to take with this car since i have what some may call a mental disease to convert...
  3. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Yea i know it sounds crazy but im planning it out already. I love the b5.5 styling and the thought of it being rwd with a V8 would be fun. Heavy firewall modification will be in order as the engine will need to set back further than current design. And no i dont want a W8. Let the "your crazy"...

    Speed Hunters has an article about a Swedish car build, converting a Golf MkIII to RWD, and implanting a 5 cylinder Volvo engine with a big turbo. :D I love car builds, the level of fabrication is amazing. :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: Maybe it's long dark winters up there, but some of the...
  5. Volkswagen Passat Early B Platforms Discussion
    Hi! i have this low budget projekt. its an good old 32b gt syncro with an 10v turbo engine from a urquattro. i was thinking about how it would work to remove the front driveshafts, and weld the middle diferential? i know some does it on early Audi s2 and s4 and so on, and seems it last a while...

    I was hoping for something a lot simpler. Maybe the Toyota version will be cleaner looking. They are calling it an Impreza coupe, and it has sube powerplants. http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/news/autoexpressnews/222900/subaru-impreza-coupe.html repost? not again i hope.....
  7. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    i want to know peoples ideas before i one day go ahead with my idea. i am a fan of two things in a car, it being a passat, and rear wheel drive cars being more fun in my opinion... so, one day i would like to buy an 4-motion passat, and remove the front 2 half shafts, and fabricate a cap for the...

    Well this was a short lived experience... Not even 3 weeks passed since I bought my first Miata. While driving back home today minding my own business on the left lane a girl tries to make a U-turn right before I pass the intersection, it didn't seem like she really cared that I was coming...

    My new RWD toy....(Miata Content) It's a 1996 Miata 1.8L with 73K miles on it. The car has leather, cruise control, power steering and windows. I would have NEVER thought I'd buy one because of well....you know...but reading all the hype over at vwvortex and finding a deal that I really...
  11. B5 Garage
    Ok well call me crazy, but I'm actually thinking about doing this. I have a few questions. First, is the front suspension independent enough to work without the driveshafts and original engine in place? My ideal engine setup would be a LS1/T56. I'm pretty sure there's room up there for one, but...

    I am torn between these 2 vehicles. The VW is $1500 more than the Kia after negotiations. Passat is a GLS 1.8T Tip (white w/ black leather) Sorento is an LX RWD V6 3.5L w/ auto + abs (White w/ grey cloth) I like the looks of the Sorento and the comfort of the VW. I was really impressed w/...

    What are some major differences between the two? Like pros and cons? The only pro I can think of for FWD is that its better is the snow. Any others? Thanks a lot. (Yep, I'm a n00b.)

    Go to the bottom for the update. :-P Alright. Weird feeling. I've driven shitty FWDs all my life, and I didn't expect to feel this from my 240SX. But. If I accelerate, and turn right, its as if the car is torque steering. Perhaps the power steering is cutting out? If I'm coasting/holding...

    Who other then BMW and Benz makes a 4 door Sedan thats RWD? I know there are a few american cars but who wants a american car? and there are a few jap cars like IS300 and G35 but what other ones? Also Why does every one make FWD cars now? Whats so grate about them?
  17. Anything Auto
    Well I think I want to start looking for a nice fun 2 door rear wheel drive cruiser for summer weekend fun. I used to have a 240sx and that was a ton of fun but not enough power. There are 4 cars that I’m considering (one is AWD). I really like all these cars but have always loved the look of...

    .....especailly when coming out of 2F2F you can compleatly distroy all the punk kids in their crappy little civics. Soooo many kids were trying to do burn outs, sliding around corners, ect, but with no avail. Being the smartass punk I am, I did a stylish quarter spin around the turn...
