you cant use the 4x4 stuff.

you can use the 2wd stuff tho, but you will need the complete rear beam as the stub axles have a different bolt patter to mk6, unless you can find a mk6 rs2k rear brake setup.

if you can, you need

hubs/stub axles, discs callipers pads and handbrake cable.

if its all off a mk5 then you will need the rear beam aswell

can get complete beams for around the £150 mark, hand brake cable is sub £20 iirc

pretty easy to change over too

If your GTI has ABS then you can't go the RS2000 route. If your car doesn't have ABS then it's a straight forward bolt on job. You'll need a MK6 RS2000 (non-ABS) handbrake cable and possibly (like I did) an upgraded master cylinder.

Some info HERE for the ABS conversion.

There's always disc beams for sale on http://www.escortevolution.co.uk/for...db&showforum=6 , but I wouldn't personally go that way with an ABS equipped car. See how much a kit from Pumabuild would cost.
