And that’s pretty much where I’m at.

Right now I have a spare mock up 3.2 VR6 in the RS3 for mock up purposes, and a separate motor I’m going to build.


As it stands I am waiting for piston and rods and tool steel head studs to arrive so I can send the motor out for Machine work and balancing.

In the mean time I’m going to work on intercooler Pipe route, oil and coolant lines, and Downpipe fabrication and dump pipe to stay productive while I wait for more engine parts to arrive.

So those wondering why I decided to VR6 swap an RS3, here is the video playlist for the build that goes into more detail.

Oh btw ordered some more accessories from Schimmel Performance, and got this note and a manual tensioner from them, thought that was pretty cool and funny.

Nice work, how much weight difference is there between the motors?

Wanted to avoid plastic as much as possible with my new R30 build in my RS3.

So I went with Justin McDonald’s billet coolant plugs from NubWorks
