VR6 to R32 in MK2

Recommended Posts

Hi Wiggy and welcome!

You would probably have to do just as much work as any other engine transplant as not a lot is compatible with where you are starting from.


The Mk2 / Mk3 and Corrado have the "CE2" fusebox under the dash by your feet, but the Mk4 and Mk5 are different wiring systems, so there is a bit of work adapting the engine wiring and other bits to match the car you have (unless you convert the whole car to Mk4/5 wiring?).


The ECU and engine electronics are a lot different from that in your car, as the systems are developed over time. For example; the R32 engine wants 4 Lambda sensors and the VR6 engine requires one. Then the ECU needs the immobiliser setup (or deleted).


You may be best looking for a complete donor car - if you have the space to store it.


Its all do-able but a fair bit of work.


Good luck with whatever you decide - just don't underestimate the effort, money and time these things demand.


Have fun!
