im bored at work right now so i figured what better time to start some sort of a build thread that i have been planning for over a year now. for those that dont know me or my car this is me and my car.


i still can figure out why vw didnt make a mkv vr (other than the R) so im going to build my own the way vw should have with some extras.

So after saving for about a year i finally made my first purchase to making this dream come real, the heart of and .:R 3.2L 24v vr6, along with just about every other part i would need for the swap from performance art center (if you need any use vw/audi parts hit up kelvin)



for the time being im still waiting for the engine to show up along with the r brakes, and im still working on getting a tranny, clutch and start so if anyone has any info on those parts form a 24v mk4 would be great as they seem to be the last pieces im going to need

as soon as the engine gets here and i find a tranny im going to pull everything out of the car and get it ready for the new heart so i dont exspect any huge up dates for another 2-3 weeks (i know im early to the party) but when i do start working there will be tons of updates as i hope to have it done for h2o but im not going to rush it so if it doesnt happen it doesnt happen shoot me

plan:
3.6 FSI (10-15-12)
3.2l vr (FOR SALE)
o2m 6speed
shaved bay
custom intake
custom dp to mate with my autotech catback
actually drive the car when im done

wish me luck:wave:

Oh god yes... Fuzzy... You do it up biggggg. :heart:

I just gave up and bought an .:R, only to do the tweaks to get it where I want it... Far from done though. I hate not having the option of a VR with a mkv other than the R32... :banghead:

Nice bud, I've been curious as to when you were going to do your bay.
Deff didn't see this coming though, are you planning on any power upgrades or just a mostly stock motor?
