Re: anyone here swapped a VR6 into a 2.0L Jetta 96-99 or know about it (kewlrichie)

It would be much cheaper and easier just to trade your car in and buy a used MKIII Jetta with a VR6....

I'm down dude...
I was in the same boat, VR6 into an 88 Jetta GL, the swap is costing 3 times what the car is worth, am I crazy, yes, do I care, no, I've dumped more money on new parts for that thing that I can remeber, at least 6 grand w/o the swap.
It's my love and my undoing.
