Steve bain 10 Posted March 20, 2017 Report Share Posted March 20, 2017 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.
