I have my suspicions... Looking forward to the big reveal and I suspect I will be following closely as I believe I want to do the same thing and it is not simple!

Agree lads, work on these Caddy’s never finishes ... and if we’re honest we never want them to finish as its all about the journey!

Hmmm TFSI ... just had a first start yesterday on a Maxi TFSI dsg conversion that myself and @Medz have been working on. Donor was a low mile 80k fsh VW Eos. Will be a much nicer van to drive now

Hef

Are you the famous Hef that Dan refers to in his YouTube series? It's nice to see all the support that is given from yourself and others to help him with his project Been following it and it's been a great watch.

TFSI would be a great motor for a Caddy. I had a Mk5 GTI for a long time and it was a cracking car and engine. Only sold it as we had to get something bigger for the family! Didn't have the budget for a Caddy at the time, but hoping to later in the year...

Out of all the amazing conversions on this forum, I would love to see a successful TT-RS quattro transplant, but it would probably be easier to start with a TT and build a Caddy around it.

Good luck Sean with whatever the plan is!

If you've had discussions with hef then I can only think of a couple of things.

1) 3.2 v6 or 3.6 v6

2) 4 wheel drive conversion.

Either one would be great but as you've had and exhaust turbo on Your van im assuming 4 wheel drive.

Good luck with anything that you decide to do
