    Thread: A2 VR6 FAQ

    1. 03-02-2005 02:17 AM #141
      Ok well I found the wiper wiring. And discovered why I couldnt find the reverse light switch wiring. I have an auto harness. I found the the backup light wiring in the harness f6 and f7 but... What do I have to do to disable the neutral position relay and anything else auto specific that might keep the car from running properly?

      hey>> I have a 90 jetta and I'm planning on puttin a VR6 in it. I'm gonna buy a Corrado SLC that has everything but the engine, radiator, fenders and bumper. I was wondering what else I would need other than an engine to get this project done.

      Engine/trans/wire harness out of a 92 corrado distributor motor

      I swapped everything from the corrado over to an 87 golf gl(replaced wire harness to CE2) and in the process deleted the abs wiring and alarm wiring. THe problem is my gauges dont work. They get power but nothing moves. does anyone have any ideas why?

      Not sure of the dimensions and I know this is ghetto but I just used some coolant hose from my old hoses...the one that goes from the overflow to the upper radiator hose.

      What throttle cable are you using? If your using the Corrado cable you are going to need to modify the bracket to place it farther from the TB so you can hit WOT. .

    14. 03-20-2005 08:22 PM #154
      i have a 92 gti . (currently has an ABA in it)

      if i get a donor GLX car, with just back end damage, will it have everything i need to do the swap? (minus LITTLE odds and ends)


      Cheers,Dan.

      hey.....so i just wired the whole interior of my 1991, OBD1 VR6, with obd1 wiring. everything works from the heaterbox to the car turning over. the hazards work, EVERYTHING.....except for my turn signals. when i ran a continuity test on the plug, that goes into the stalk, for the turn signals, its getting no power. so i followed the wires down to where the go in the fusebox, and saw no problems with the wiring. the windshield wipers work, i mean i really dont know what to do. if anybody for some reason has a picture of the schematics for this, or even knows whats going on, please chime in....ive ran out of ideas, and am about to jump from the wiper plug to the signal plug.
      thanks in advance!!

      The passat vr shift box is the one I am using in my car now, works fine.

      Thats good to hear! I also found a MK3 one, possibly very cheap.

      Ok, just to confirm, 95 Passat VR cross member will work right? Came across one these as well.

      EDIT: One more, do I HAVE to use a rado or A3 power steering rack? I cant use my A2 powersteering rack and still have PS?

      please read the entire thread all your questions are in there

    22. 03-28-2005 12:40 PM #162
      I did read it, but I just wanted to confirm on the passat cross member. I suppose I can use the lower half but need to decide which upper half to use. Thats what was confusing me.

      And the reason I asked about using my A2 steering rack was because I assume that the power steering lines won't bolt up to the VR PS pump. Which is why I asked if I had to use a different rack. Thanks.


    23. 03-31-2005 11:03 PM #163
      ok, so I am just gonna get a new rado rack at the dealer anyways. so.

      Here's a good question I didnt see asked.

      I am putting a OBII motor in my A2, and I want to have the OBII Vag port available to me. Is it as easy as seperating the plug from a A3 wire harness and plugging it into my fuse block (CEII) or where ever it goes?

      I'm using a mk3 VR6 K-frame and a corrado front cross member, what motor/tranny mounts do i use? I guess corrado front since corrado cross member and the two rear mk3 VR? will this work. thanks

      That will work, but the passenger side of the motor may be raised up a little higher than if you used a rado kframe. I actually got the chance to see the difference and you can tell. You can grind down the mount if you use the A3 kframe which is what I am doing cuz they are easier to find in mint shape and cheaper.

      I'm about to get started with my swap and I had a few questions I didn't see addressed. Evidently, I got a Passat 16v front cross member with my swap instead of a vr6 one. I see this can be used, but what motor mounts should I use? I have a good G60 hydro mount laying around the garage and my MK2 already has the solid style "flying saucer" type mount in it. Which of the two would be better to use?

      Also, my swap came out of a front end hit and as a result the front motor mount bracket was damaged and is un-useable. Is there any possible way I can use the one from the 4 cylinder?

      We've got a Corrado VR6 subframe and crossmember here if anyone needs them.

    28. 04-24-2005 10:38 PM #168
      ok... so I'm takin the jetta apart and getting it all ready for the swap... but... I dunno what to do when it comes to all the wiring. Only the engine wiring comes out, right? That makes sense to me. Do I just unwrap all the wires that are wrapped together and weed out only the engine wiring?

      Here is my setup!

      -98 GLX engine and wiring harness
      -00 GLX transmission (02J) with 98 GLX Shift box and cables
      -Clutch pivot made my Ben Custom Fabric here in Quebec, to use clutch cable.
      -95 Passat VR6 front crossmember (motormount part)
      -91 Passat 16v lower rad support (in front of crossmember)
      -98 GLX K-frame but with rear engine mount cut down a bit to level the engine out.
      -A2 control arms
      -A3 10.1 spindles, with G60 calipers, carriers and 11'' rotors
      -98 rear beam (3/4'' wider)
      -A2 brake booster and 22mm MC
      -Neuspeed 25mm front swaybar for A2
      -A2 GTI drive axles
      -A2 manual steering rack with manual steering rack U-joint and A2 tie-rod assemblies
      -Patec Holeshots for Corrado VR6 with VR6 strut bearings
      -97 2.0 8v gas tank with 98 GLX fuel pump (although the 2.0 8v pump works fine as well)

      Hope this helps a couple of you with what can fit and what can be done.

      Dude! Nice setup. What is this Clutch pivot made my Ben Custom Fabric here in Quebec, to use clutch cable? How does it work and can anyone get one? I'd love to use a cable in stead of hyrdaulic action. Do you have a pic of it all mounted up?

      -98 GLX K-frame but with rear engine mount cut down a bit to level the engine out.

      Apporximately how much did you cut it down? I'll be using one out of a DE that I can get real cheap.

      -98 rear beam (3/4'' wider)

      Only 98's had the wider rear beam?

      Looking good, thanks for listing your setup. More people need to do this!

      Thanks for the good comments.
      I can't really explain the clutch pivot other than the fact that it has the same type of rod as the clutch cylinder that goes into the clutch/pressure plate housing, and pushes on the throwout fork, the same way the original system does. I'll take pics, maybe even take it off of the car to take better pics for you in the next couple days.

      All MK3 rear beams are wider. and for the rear mount, I did it a while ago, don't really remember how much it was cut down, but maybe a 1/2'', can someone confirm that?


      Edit:
      Here is a pic of the exact same clutch pivot. Ben Custom Fabric sells it for 100$ Can.

      Appologies if this has already been discussed...

      I’d like to maintain my factory A2 steering rack, tierods, ball joints and control arms. Can I still use the Mk2 axles? Will they bolt up to the VR6 diff ok?

      Spindles:

      All can be used A2/A3/Corrado/Passat
      ** must match struts to spindles (there are different widths)

      According to this, you can't use VR6 struts with A2 sprindles (knuckles)? That doesn't sound right. Which spindles are wider?
