Newbie with a soon to be VR6 scirocco

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.


I'm from Devon and have owned my scirocco for 17 odd years. I have recently undertaken another restoration on it so its really clean. I have always wanted a VR6, as a kid it was the gold standard in magazines etc. Nowadays so many people are doing 1.8T conversions so i thought it was about time to get myself a VR6 and do it. I bought an mot failure sharan for £150 with a good strong 135k engine. I have stripped it out along with gearbox, wiring loom, ecu, transmission, gearstick and some other bits. The rest of the car is being scrapped on thursday. 


I plan to use a 'bolt in' set of mounts from here: http://www.classic-vw.co.uk/mk1-golf-epytec-vr6-engine-conversion-mounts--02a--02j-gearbox-mounts-14704-p.asp


I will then get custom shafts made and the rest will 'fall into place' hopefully. 


First problem is i have a dbv gearbox which i think is no good so need to find myself a gearbox now....but i will ask about that in the right places.


anyway, looking forward to my adventures into VR6 ownership.

not that people seem particularly chatty, but it is now out, started to clean it up and have stripped SAI, EGR, PCV, AC pump, PAS pump and auxilary water pump. I also stripped off loads of coolant pipes to bare bones. I have now stripped the loom of non essentials and have purchased an 02a gearbox and shifter so it all on track. I have also started painting the block but ran out of paint! next job is to strip it down and get parts powdercoated and do more turbo research....
