 I'm thinking about going to another class in Pro Rally and have a GT that 
 be perfect for Group2 or 5. I would like to do something wih the brakes that
 doesn't entail using 15" or bigger wheels or that is really exspensive!. I 
 to keep it simple. Thanks!!

I describe how I did mine there.  VW parts will not bolt up, wrong lug 
spacing for starters.  Your best bet is a complete 87.5 rear axle, that will 
bolt in.  An 80/90 rear axle will also work, but you will have to figure out 
the parking brake, not a very big problem...
