looking to swap out my 2.SLOW for a VR6. I'm just wondering how difficult its going to be. I mean i know that the engine will bolt right up, but I'm just unsure about if its worth it or not.
Been doing alot of thinking...i was going to turbo the 2.0 bu cause i realized that the used car dealership had GPS and remote shutdown wired into the car and swapping the engine out would tamper it. so i was going to turbo it and realized that the overall cost or turboing the 2.0 vs. the VR^ is generally the same. So December 2011, i should be starting the swap. i know its a long time, but i have to pay the car off... :/ But it'll all work out. Ill post pics of the swap when i decide to start, but I may change my mind again LOL.
If a bump in HP is your goal, why not just add a chip and/or add nitrous and/or add a supercharger?
(Did you know there are bolt-on SC kits for the 2.0?)
If you're on a budget, swapping in a VR or turbo'ing your 2.0 just doesn't make any sense.

It's been a long time since I've posted this. But I am finally ready to start this swap!!! My boy has a few VR6's lined up at an auto auction. I'll definately be posting alot more now along with build pics. Depending on if we get the car or not, hopefully within the next 2 weeks I'll be starting the process! Just in time for prom, Imagine riding into prom in a VR6 beetle.

Well guys, yet again this swap wont be happening...not because of funds or lack of resources but because i was tboned in an intersection and she is totaled. If there is anything i am glad about its that i didn't buy the motor yet. ill post pics of the car in a bit. :/
