  2. Vento Challenge VR6 Race Car

    Bump. Price now £7000 ono. Spare gearbox and trailer now sold.
  3. This is a VW 02A close ratio racing gearbox from the Vento Challenge Championship. The gear set was supplied by Gemini as per the Vento Challenge specification with standard 1st & 2nd and close ratio 3rd, 4th and 5th. It has Gripper LSD which has only been run for 2 hours. Large flanges have been fitted which use the larger fixing bolts for additional bolt strength. Flanges are bolted in not push fit for reliability. The matching inner constant velocity joint we used are GKN 302305 which are for VW Caravelle, VW Multivan and VW Transporter. Eurocarparts 657446590. The gearbox was checked and refurbished by Road and Race but has not been fitted/run since. A couple of the threaded bolt holes need helicoil inserts as the threads are worn. Listed on ebay for £1600

  7. GOLF VR6 AAA 12V -> BDE 24 SWOP

    Hi, 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. Barrie...
