I just found a 96 passat vr6 for my mk2 swap.... Is this engine too new? What is the cut-off year for when they went to distributorless? Let me know today because this guy wants to get rid of it.

Re: Last year for distributor on VR6? (voltron1011)

Doesnt really matter....
i belive 1995 is the first year VW doomed us all to the Coil Pack.

I think the year they switched was in 93. Ken's 93 B3 VR6 had a coilpack. My 93 has a distributor. My car's build date is 06/92, not sure if that helps at all.
A 96 B4 definitely has a coilpack, and would be OBD2 aswell.

Distributors were only on 92 and early 93 VR6's. Late 93-on had coilpacks. OBD2 started in 96.
