      They're not level factory. Engine sits higher on passenger side. Probably vw was trying to help weight balance, seeing as a transmission is lighter than an engine. I don't think there is anything comical about someone thinking outside the box and getting a vr into a mk1 . I've done it twice with full subframe (awesome gti store style) and with MK3 mounts (more shawn veneer style). I'm sure both were not level. But one has been running since 96 the other since 06.

      This all being said, I think eurowise's kit is kick ass and I got my hands on one of their kits for a cab I'm building this winter. Build time goes down massively with this kit. Takes the hard part out of building a vr MK1.

      Neither of the VR bunnies I built have flipped yet either.

      Now BFI, get rid of that us spec dash in that rabbit!

      IMO its comical only because it looks like ass. I would hate to show off lopsided VR transplant. I am well aware the factory did it too (likely for ground clearance)... but that does make it right. We are all aware VW doesnt always hit the mark.

      The car was bought with a 16v swap running on digi1, as well as a list of other mods already on it including the small tails. As of the video and pictures so far, all we have done to the car is the swap. More parts came in while we were gone at H20i and the next steps will be taken soon

      18 hours, could have thrown some carbs on it and done it in 10
      Scuba If I got in a cab and Esher was driving, I'd get right out. Then I'd ponder how drunk I was that I entered the rear of a 2dr rabbit and thought it was a cab.

      OK, so with a stripped interior and VR6 in the nose and an empty gas tank it might be a little nose heavy...........

      For now, yeah.
      We put everything together less then two weeks ago, attended H20 last weekend and have a business to run at the same time.
      But no worries, more modifications and updates are in the process.
      Gutted, cage, different wheels, etc..
      Stay tuned.

      Cage is almost done, as well as its new shoes 14x7 TD's with Hankook RS3's. Some of the other details should get knocked out and addressed by next weekend and I should have some new pics next week as well
