      Hey
      I am wondering if the VR6 in our Eurovans is specific to the Eurovan or if it's only a slightly modified version that's found in other VW models.
      I'm specifically wondering about timing chain parts and how DIY threads for other VR6 engines relates to ours.
      Thank You!

      I believe it's only slightly modified (oil pan and oil pickup due to the tilted-forward mounting, and maybe intake manifold too) and most other DIYs indeed do apply.

      Valve cover, pan, oil filler, oil pump are different.

      There is also a difference in 1 mounting hole alignment (comparing auto with auto). I'm told the manual tranny version of the BDF vr6 block has the same mounting hole pattern as the EV.

      I installed a BDF auto long block into mine and had to adapt the 1 misaligned hole. It has worked well for past 4 years, with no issues.
