Hello all, Its been a few years. I have a new projects that I need help with. I just pulled out a 12v VR6 engine that spun the timing chains and bent a few valves. I found a good running VR6 24 valve engine up in Anchorage that I would like to repower this van with. Do I need to change the ECU or can I just put on the 12v VR6 intake.
I also had a issue of breaking the speedo pick up unit on the axel. So I need some Axel parts on the passanger side of this auto 1999 van. Car slipped off the jack as I was putting jack stands under the car. First time for everything and I am to blame. I need a drivers side engine mount as well.
Hope you can help me, no parts EV's in this part of Alaska. (Homer)
If going 24V, you need one from a manual-transmission Mk4 Golf/Jetta for the bolt holes to match up from what I understand..
For the intake manifold? The intake manifold is VERY different on a 24V Eurovan than on a 24V MKIV, unfortunately. You'll need the EV specific intake manifold, or some custom work done. The former is most likely cheaper/less painful.
Carl - I think it will be 10 times easier if you find another 12v Vr6 (should be more abundant and cheaper too). If there are no Eurovan parts around to be salvaged, the 24v Eurovan intake alone will be murder to ship up.
No sorry, I meant the engine. Manual trans BDF motor mates to the 01P Eurovan trans. Automatic Mk4 VR6 motors don't all totally match up to trans bolt holes.
That's very odd. AFAIK the mounting points are identical on the BDF regardless of auto or manual. Many GTI/Jetta swap threads will tell this. I'm not sure if the 01P uses a different mounting sequence, though.
There are a LOT of misconceptions out there about the BDF/AXK motors, for some reason.
I just did some searching of photos for the blocks and can't see any bolt hole differences. I wonder what rensho meant. Photos from them would have been nice.
I guess to be on the safe side getting a donor from a manual-trans car could be smart.
Thanks all. I will do a road trip up to Anchorage in the very near future for parts hunting. I just got 48 yards of pit run dumped off in my drive way. THis will build up a flatter work spot for staging and working on my VW's. I have about 35 parts and project cars. I love the vans the most. I need to drive out of Alaska this winter or I'm going to go mental. Its been about 15 years with out a break from the ice and snow. Makes for fun rally driving, but I only have one point left or I will loose my license.
If any one of you gets to Homer and needs some VW service, everyone knows about Carl and his collection dubs.
Hello,i have some troubles with Eurovan.Friend of mine just blow his engine and want me to swap another with more power.Old engine is 12v AES with automatic transmission. Since i can't find 24v out of T4 in my country,what would be my best option to mate engine with this auto tranny?
