I used to own a 90 GTI but I sold it for my current rabbit. Best move ever.
Fastforward a couple years and now I'm trying to drop the Jetta VR off. My brother is gettin ready to give my the 1990 Golf GL 4 door auto I gave him. I was thinking about dropping the WHOLE package from the VR into the Golf because...well because I can.
I know I would need some different parts(front subframe crap and d/p) but I would basically have everything to start out with and I know both cars would be good. Has anyone ever done a vr auto swap? To be able to say I was the first would be pretty cool http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
Ideas and comments?

Is the VR a 5-speed or auto? It isn't a whole lot harder to swap auto to manual since everything will be apart anyway. You'd be going from a cable linkage to a hydralic anyway(if both cars were 5-speed). Only diference lies in the auto ecm which you won't use anyway.

there is that one in PVW. the guy was paralised and he needed hand controls. so they swaped a passat motor with auto trans.
