Its FWD, there is not drive shaft. The swap is ridiculously hard, and rarely ever done. You'll spend more time and money getting it to fit in than you would if you just bought a TSI in the first place. Not too mention, the couple people that have done it eventually had a giant paperweight in the driveway.
