Mk1 Audi TT 3.2 V6
Ha ha ha. Proper Noddy van. You sure it won't roll over nose first with those 18s on?
Cheers mate. Ive done a ton of engine conversions im my mis spent youth haha. My first ever engine conversion was back in 2000, converted my old astra mk2 from small block 1.4 to 1.8 8v gte on carbs. Broke stuff and learned the hard way in my youth, but its all good fun.This looks like it's going to be fun! Hats off to you, dont know how you know where to start.
Megane 3 parts will probably fit too as very similar platform, clio 197 bits should go no bother too. I cant believe how rotten the shock was, rest of the van is mint really@Brigsy I thought these fans would have shared parts from the Megane III rather than the II. Handy to know that 225 shocks fit as mine are looking a little taste too but not quite daylight thin yet... Handy to know this for upgrade options
Where are the top mounts located, under the front scuttle if I remember from the last time I looked. What are you going to run as your rear set up?
Mine are the same, also MOT last week highlighted the rear brake lines that sit just in front of the driver rear wheel are peppered too and need replacing on mine. Its just random little bits that seem to go on these and not much else.Megane 3 parts will probably fit too as very similar platform, clio 197 bits should go no bother too.

You will need the full 225 hub and wishbone setup to run the shocks and different length driveshafts If staying diesel, also 225 shocks are shorter so probably need to run some shorter springs to suit. I have also fitted megane rs inner tie rods as original Kangoo ones seemed a bit short with the track width increase.
Top mounts are indeed under the scuttle, same as meg3 proper pain in the arse removing it all for a simple shocker off.
Rear is a bit awkward as its Kangoo specific, its a spring and beam setup but different to the meg rs. Got the rear H&R springs to fit and have ideas for custom shocks. Will visit that soon when i get a 5 stud beam.
in Australia (and possibly other markets) they swapped the old 1.6 na for the 1.2 TCE 115, could get it with an EDC box too!Seen some inspiration the other day too. Turns out that they done a 1.2 turbo model on the current Kangoo in Aus, not sure if it was a one off from Renault as a demonstrator as no real info out there about it. Looks alright though, i reckon the newer clio 220 edc might fit and meg rs280 lump, if you had deep pockets.
