      Yep. Hasn't been a issue for me, otherwise.

      So i'm a bit confused on the front cross member set up for both the motor mount and lower rad support.

      I am planning on running my MKIII VR Rad and fans... from my research I bough the Passat 16V cross member both the radiator half and motor mount half.
      It doesn't seam to line up... the tow bar on the rad support hits the tow bar of the MKII frame... and I haven't played with it yet, but It doesn't appear that the motor mount is going to work.
      Can anyone verify if the pictures below are indeed from a 16V Passat and if this setup is supposed to work... or am I all screwed up.

      you need to cut all that off, even on the other side. passat uses 3 bolts for all that, mk2 needs only back two. if you have factory fogs youre gonna need to cut even more. Im doing mine right now and I have to remove it again to finish cutting it for fogs.
      I do work on cars, anything short of engine and transmission rebuilding can be done. welding, custom and aftermarket as well as regular repairs. IM me for details, shop is in WOodbridge.

      If you are keeping all mk2 (mk2 wide track) and not plus VR setup, everything you mentioned will work.

      The rack + hubs should be easily mated worst case scenario is change tie rod ends?

      4 lug vr6 FTW

      Thanks a lot. Yes I think a 4 lug vr will be good. A buddy does have a O2M though which I think would be awesome for freeway trips but than I would have to completely scrap what i have.

      Does anybody know of anywhere that sells rebuild kits for g60 calipers?

      Because a passat*** k frame and stance are wider.

      Suspension is best served from an mk3 Jetta/gti or staying mk2 OEM.

      My car keeps ruining front right wheel bearings. I have done all the work to Bentley Specs, Used top quality parts.
      The engine/trans subframe...everything is Corrado Vr.
      I cut the rear motor mount down 3/4 of an inch to level out the engine. I'm starting to suspect the "new relationship" (or distance) between the axel flange, driveshaft and spindle. Cutting the mount down effectively reduces the distance between the axle flange and spindle.
      The car has Apex sport springs and is by no means slammed. It migh have 1.25 inch drop
      The bearing is Immediately bad - as in 1st mile driven.
      I started having this problem shortly after replacing the motor mounts .
      Any thoughts?

      Did you start with the OE mount with no problems and then switched to a cut mount and you started having problems?

      There's been controversy about cutting the mount. From the people I've talked to that have done a bunch of these swaps and judging from my personal swap. I didnt cut the mount. I did however swap them with the BFI .5 mounts. No issues with bearings at all. I'm using all mk3 stuff for my swap.

      It had a O.E mount that I cut because hood clearance issue. I pulled the motor this spring and when it was out I also went with BFI.5's that I cut.
      Im stumped. Wheel bearings are not hard. Ive done them before on othere cars with no problems.
      The axel is 20 years old, maybe its not telescoping properly. Resulting in the bearing and hub not being compressed enough when tightening the hub nut.
      I had the passender axel off the trans flange today and the grease was pastey. And the inner boot is staring to split. The inner CV was "locked". I had to twist it with channel locks to get it to telescope (now ithe action is smooth) to the flange to re-bolt it up.

      IDK im grasping at straws now

      New axles from NAPA ate under $100. Wouldn't hurt to scoop up some new ones. Plus you get some $$ back for the cores. I'd imagine you would get some type of vibration if the CVs are not working proper.

      Also are they the OE bearings? If they are 20yrs old as well, then you probably have a bad bearing.

      Its my understanding an axle vibration is most likely the shaft is bent.??
      Ive done the bearing 3 times, with the last one I bought a new hub. .
      I'm going to try new axles.
      This winters project(s) is a full suspension refresh with poly and other stuff in the mix. I'll just do the axles than. Its about time to put it away for winter anyway. I'm going to miss the last autocross tommorow. I wanted to try out my new RE-11s. Their grip is amazing. Oh well next year

      Ok Ive read the first 2 pages of this write up. Im clear on everything EXCEPT pedal cluster/clutch/brake master cylinder. My donor car is a 98 GTI OBD2 vr6 it has ABS and a hydraulic clutch. The swap is being placed in a wonderful 90 GTI CE2. What WILL I NEED to use if I do NOT want ABS and what all do I need to replace?
      Thanks

      pedal cluster from a B3 passat and a non-abs brake booster bracket.

      the b3 pedal cluster will allow mate up the mk3 stuff just fine.
