Good Morning


I am in need of a bit of advice regarding doing a engine swop from a 2.8 12V AA to a 2.8 24V BDE in my MK3 GOLF VR6.


Does this 24V fit straight into my MK3 body of does engine mounts need to be made up? Does the CV Joints and shafts fit on the 24V?


I will be running and aftermarket fuel management system should I decide to follow through with the swop.


So I would appreciate it  if someone could shed some light on the swop and the ins and outs of the 24 motor?


Kind Regards

I have the 24 valve BDE engine fitted to my Vento VR6 (Mk3 base) racing car using the 12 valve standard gearbox casing (different gear set) which bolted straight on.

We just used the engine mountings from the 12 valve setup without any problems. The exhaust of course is different and we used a straight through system that we had to buy.

The BDE engine has variable inlet and exhaust cam timing plus intake manifold switching. These need to be controlled via the engine management system.

Hope this helps.
