    I've been told it's just a matter of removing the transfer box and bolting a sealing plate over the aperture to block the oilway.

    Can anyone shed any light on EXACTLY what's involved?

    Sounds pretty straight forward i think.. just out of interest, why are you doing this?

    I have an LCR now and have a peloquin LSD on the way so wanted a spare box to play with.

    S3/TT gearboxes are more common than the 2WD version it seems...

    They are almost exactly the same as an S3/TT, apart from the obvious lack of transfer box take-off.

    The 'fly'?

    The flywheel? No, but that's not part of the gearbox anyway.

    Back on topic pls.

    pretty sure this can be done, i know where people have dropped 2.0 tubro calibra / cavilier engines into corsa's etc it was just a case of doing this.

    Yes I KNOW it can be done, I just need to know the details of how it's done.
