      What to do about the clutch safey switch? I'm not sure my mkII had one but there was one in the donor (96GLX). I don't have the pedal harness so I'm assuming I can just jump it at the fuse box?

      you can just splice the two wires together or what i did was extend it and hid it under the dash so that if someone tries to steal the car even if they get the hot it wont start without pressing in the switch.

      Got it started.

      I'm using a G60 radiator. The fan shround I have fits it perfectly, although I don't know for sure which one it is...slc maybe? The problem I'm having is the fan I have sits too close to the radiator, it actually touches it. What fan should I be using?

      Can I use a passat 16v dual fan setup on a corrado vr6 rad in my a2 vr project? or do I need to salvage the a3 setup(pins on the motor are bent and the shrouds tweeked)?

      i have obd1 b3 glx vr swapped into a 90 digi2 wolfsburg jetta... i'm curious as to what fuel pump to use??? now, i know that you can just swap the a3 tank right in with the lines and everything,... but i wanted to know if i could use just the a3 vr pump, or a2 16v pump without changing anything else?

      I have asked around about this and the Digi 2 fuel pump will work fine.

      Edit: You will have to use your Digi2 Tank with your Digi2 fuel pump.
      You cannot use a Digi2 pump with an A3 Tank.

      However, if you plan to run boost in the future, you will have to swap out your Digi2 Tank and Fuel pump with an A3 Fuel pump and Tank.

      the a3 pump will not fit into a non a3 tank the top of the pump is much larger.

      also fuel pump related...do you have to splice any wires to have the fuel pump work with the setups described above?

    11. 12-22-2004 07:50 PM #81
      if it was me, I would just go with a cis fuel pump and call it a day. it puts out way more pressure than any mk3 pump and or vr6 pump and puts out a lot more flow. check into that.

    12. 12-24-2004 01:17 PM #82
      Yes you will have to splice in the vr plug. the 8v pump and vr pump have different sized plugs but same wires. All the wires are the same though so it is a no brainer splicing on the new plug

      is that for ce2 as well? and i havent really looked yet but where do the wires from the fuel pump connect to? the fuse box or somewhere else?


    14. 12-24-2004 04:25 PM #84
      applies to ce2 as well... vr and 2.0 pumps are a single in-tank pump. I believe all mk2's have that extra crappy little pump underneath the car that always leaks as well. If you go vr pump get the entire tank, lines and filter. Filter mounts in the same place where that other pump or whatever the heck it is underneath the car. I picked the lines, tank, pump and filter from l and t enterprizes and it was only 75 bucks

      hey guys. i have a few questions.

      recently bought a mk2 vr6. it has the following components:
      obd1 corrado engine
      corrado tranny
      brakes, wiring, dash, cluster, subframes all from 99 DE

      this does make a wicked car... however....the clutch is very low. it grabs about 1/2 inch from the floor! now this makes it a little ****ty when your stuck in traffic having to plow the clutch to the floor.

      just wondering if there is anything that i can swap in to correct this?

      2 questions here.
      1. fuel tank - will the vr6 glx fuel tank bold right in into my mk2 gti and is this worth doing?
      2. front cross member (mount) can I use a MMP Mk2 VR6 mount with my curret cross member (16v gti)?

      that is all for now.

      From what I have read, The VR6 gas tank is the same size as the Larger tanks found on later model Mk2 cars.

      They are 14.5 US gal with 12 useable.

      My 1989 GL Auto had this tank volume from the factory and it was not changed out during the swap.

      I get about 270-290 miles out of each tank of gas.

      Ok the main reason I want to swap the tank out is, I want to eliminate the pump that is under the car so I run just one pump and not this two pumps BS. My car is 92 GTi so it should be the bigger tank.

      How are you guys mounting the ECU in the rain tray? I've got it located on the passenger side but don't have anything to mount it to...what have some of you come up with?

    23. 01-02-2005 01:23 AM #93
      i acutally did not do this myself. but it does just bolt in (no modifications...but i believe you need the fuel lines too.

      Thanks...I guess you seperate the ECU from the bracket?

    27. 01-05-2005 06:46 PM #97
      yup... just make sure you do not place it too close the the wiper arms but close enough that the rain tray fits.

      Has anyone used a Corrado pedal cluster with an A3 gas pedal and throttle cable? I just got an A3 gas pedal and tried to hook it up but it doesn't line up with the throttle cable when mounted in the Corrado cluster. Any ideas besides buying a Corrado throttle cable?

    29. 01-13-2005 12:43 PM #99
      If you want to use the A3 pedal and cable you need to drill another hole in the firewall. The A2s including the corrado have a bend to the left I believe and the A3 goes in the other direction.

      You can use a passat VR6 cable from a B3/B4 as well, it has the same attachment as the A2 cables.

      Also if you are going to use the A3 pedal you will probably have to remove some of the material to allow it to move freely and have a full extension, if I remember correctly it will get stuck and not go all the way down to the floor.

      Good luck, I would stick with the A2 parts and go with a corrado or passat cable... whichever you can find... futrell sells the corrado ones

      I was thinking I'd need to drill another hole, but didn't really want to do that. Especially considering the fact that even if I did drill the hole in the firewall the gas pedal would be real close to the brake pedal. The pedal, when installed in the Corrado cluster, actually sits to the left of the gas pedal stop. I did, in fact, have to remove some material from the top of the pedal so it wouldn't get stuck when pushed to the floor. Your knowledge of these cars and swaps is impressive.

      I'm probably just going to get the Corrado cable.


    31. 01-13-2005 09:27 PM #101
      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

      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


    34. 01-18-2005 07:10 PM #104
      wanted to know what is the color of the plug that plugs into the alternator
