      here is the progress so far .. the last pic shows what had to be removed from the passenger side rail ..
      it took 3 100% custom made engine mounts and some minor triming of the 02M and engine block for them to fit together

      damn that is one hell of a post. If people keep up these kinds of swaps soon it will be as bad as.... dare i say it. Honda's. LOL. VW needs a place that can make mounts for any vw motor to fit into everything.

      Great work looks like it's going to be very nice.

      haha, I seriously doubt VW ever intended the 5 cylinder to fit into a mk3... there's a reason they didn't put one in to begin with!

      yes you gotta cut for the engine to fit ..the motor is kind of boxed into the frame .. we were kind of surprised when we had to cut that much since the motor was not significantly larger than the vr ..but what we forgot was that the VR is like inclined 15* forward ..and the 2.5 is like any 4cyl so 15* backwards ..and the space between the side rails gets narrower near the shock tower ...so if it would have been forward like a VR it would have fit right in , probably without even cutting the rail ... and all the engine mounts needs to be fabbed up since were using a 02M ... and the cross member needs some modification because of the oil filter housing that comes in contact with the stock cross member...next thing we will install the rear diff and drive shaft ..oh and we started the tubular 5 to 1 exhaust manifold
      thank you all for the comments

      the world would be a very boring place f you could just buy that sort of thing off the shelf.
