    Thread: A2 VR6 FAQ

    1. 01-13-2005 09:27 PM #101
      [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] Thanks... I have taken quite a few A2s and A3s apart from complete to shell...
      Corrado cables can be hard to find, that is why I suggested the passat... sometimes it is easier to get ahold of
      Good luck either way [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I have an 86 Golf (basic CIS) and I have a 93 passat with a vr6.... what exactly do I need from this car??? I plan on pullin the entire harness front to rear, and I know the rear crossmember won't fit... what other problems can I except to run into?
      Thanks in advance

      anyone?

      Im sorry, but no one is answering you because most of the information is right at the top of this post and the rest can be found by searching the archived forums.
      But here is the short list:
      You can use....pretty much the whole car
      front cross member (rad support bottom)
      pedal cluster
      brake booster w/clutch master and abs if you got it
      engine/trans/wiring
      downpipe and cat
      shifter box and cables (but an A3 golf or jetta is better as the passat is longer, but it can work)
      fuel lines/pump/tank
      rad and fans
      Pretty much the only thing you will not have from the passat that is needed is the K-frame from an A3, a VR6 or 2.0 can be used. I think you will need the rear motor mount bracket to... to mount to the A3 frame, or the trans bracket... one of them is different but I forget which [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I'm using an engine harness out of a GLX and have a G60 radiator with the rectangular plug, but my harness has the round connector. Will the fan switch for the VR6 radiator fit in the G60 rad?

      The holes in the rad have been virtually the same from '76-present...
      Both Rad themal switches should fit.

      Make sure you have the right u-joints and it should bolt right up.
      Now for my question
      I'm not getting power to my gauge cluster. Its a mkIII cluster, I made the jump from D8 to E2 and still nothing. The LCDs are on without the key turned but as soon as I turn the key....nothing. Please help, seach is down and I want to figure this thing out. Any help, as always is much appreciated.
      Edit: Search is back up. Turns out I was using the original cluster harness. I got the mkIII cluster harness and should be good to go. Move along, nothing to see here.

      does the mk3 kframe make the engine sit a little higher on one side? how do you prevent that?

      Yes, It sits a little higher and will give it a little tilt.
      I don't know about Adjustment for the A3 K-frame but....
      To avoid this you can use a Corrado Vr6 K-frame which will allow the engie to sit a little lower and more level in the Engine Bay than the A3 K-frame.
      This is what I'm using in my swap just because of this issue.

      you can also cut the rear motormount down. i dont know how much but its very simple. maybe someone who knows for sure will post.
      forgot to mention, but i have the corrado rear subframe and the rear mount still had to be cut down.

      when using a g60 speedo cable, does it do anything funky with the vss stuff? like does it hamper the revs, cap the speed, anything wonky like that?

      I checked futrell's site for this and I can only see the 1.8 & 2.0l converters on there. Anyone have a link? I am in need of one of these as well.

      i emailed futrell, they dont have them listed, but they DO have em. they are $300 us. canadians can get the same thing from MMP, same price

      but, yesterday i think i found a BETTER option
      email sales@fastforward.ca
      canadian based company, they can integrate harnesses and such, and he said for about 250 canadian, he can configure the tach AND set up a VSS sensor at the speedo (meaning, you need the g60 cable, BUT you can send the ecu a VSS signal) [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      this looks the most promising, and its a DAMN good price

      Compliments of Jeffrey B:
      Here is some good Info that may help you guys Sort through some of the parts you can use.
      To keep your car 4 lug you can go a couple of different ways.
      1. Use the A3 ('93-99 Golf/Jetta) K frame with A-arms, axles, spindles, PS, etc. and add G60 or VR6 calipers, and G60 11.0" rotors. This will result in a little wider track on the front than what you have with A2 stuff on the car now. (this is what the white car had.
      2. Use the A3 or Corrado K-frame, but use A2 A-arms and axles. Use Corrado or A3 power steering rack with A2 tie rod assemblies. Use the A3 4 cyl. spindles, and Corrado G60 or Vr6 calipers, and G60 rotors. Use the A2 sway bar as well.

      The Corrado K-frame will sit the engine a little lower, and a little more level in the engine bay.

      To do the AC, you will need to pull the dash. This will also make it much easier to swap the pedal cluster. Pull the dash, and pull the Ac blowerbox out. exchange the R12 evaporator core out for an R134 one. Use the R134 expansion valve. Use the Corrado VR6 AC lines. You can use the Corrado VR6 or a regular A2 condenser. Use passat VR6 or Corrado VR6 cooling fans. If you use passat , you will have to trim the bottom of the fan shroud to fit the height of the G60 or Corrado Vr6 radiator that you will use.

      If you are buying suspension for the car, A3 4cyl stups work well in the A2's. The A3 is a heavier car, and the heavier VR6 motor makes up for the weight difference in the chassis of the cars.

      To hook up the AC, if you use a '92 Corrado for wiring it is a plug and play affair. If you use anything else , it will be a "get both bentleys out and compare affair."

      Here is a basic rundown on what you can use:

      front motor mount carrier - Passat VR6 or Corrado VR6

      K-frame -A3 4 cyl or 6 cyl, and Corrado VR6. (just remember that you have to use 6 cyl. A-arms with 6 cyl. axles, and vice versa.

      Rotors - Corrado G60 for 4 lug, and VR6 rotors for 5 lug.

      PS lines - VR6 A3, passat, or Corrado. Corrado VR6 work best.

      PS rack - A3 , 4cyl or 6, Corrado VR6 , or Passat VR6. Just remember that you will match up the tie rod assemblies with the A-arms that you are using.

      Spindles - A3 4 cyl., Late A2 with 10.1 brakes, Passat 16v, or Corrado G60 for 4 lug. Any thing VR6 for 5 lug.

      Calipers - G60 or VR6 (they are the same in 11.0" )

      Swaybar - match up the swaybar with the A-arms.

      Shifterbox - Corrado G60, anything VR6

      Pedalbox- Corrado (Vr6 or G60), Passat (16v or VR6)

      Brake Booster and Backing plate - Corrado G60 non ABS, or passat 16v

      Clutch slave and Master - Corrado G60 or VR6, Passat VR6 or 16v

      Instrument cluster - Early A2 with MFA (86-89 Golf 16v's, or 85-87 GTI or GLI 8v) (Have to make hybrid harness for it to work)

      Exhaust - TT for A2 VR6 conversions

      Rear Axle beam - Any A2 with rear discs, or A3, or Corrado.

      Gas tank and pump - Use the one in the car, or swap the one from your A3 or Corrado Donor car.

      Speedo Cable - Corrado G60
