Hello all I have a chance to pick up a "spare" VW VR6 engine. Any thoughts on this engine?
Will the adapter for the T5 that fits inline 4 fit this engine?
I'm still working on my Model T speedster , but I'm looking into the future a few mo.
Thanks for all the good advice !

I think all the VW engines have the same bolt pattern so the adapter should work on the VR6 too. It is compact, but tall. Later versions are said to be better than earlier ones - I think there is another string here that give details, but it may be buried in another topic.

If I recall member botbasher was doing a 1.8t build but seemed quite knowledgeable in all things VW. Maybe drop him a PM. memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=2962

The VR6 has a different pattern than the 4 cyl stuff. There are some guys making an adapter plate to fit the 6 speed Nissan trans from the 350z if you want to RWD this engine.
