im looking to get a mk3 oil pan for my VR auto.. will any mk3 pan work? or does it have to be from another auto vr?
im aware that i need a new mk3 oil pan gasket to clear my oil pump, but do i also need the flywheel cover from another mk3 auto vr car or can it be from a manual mk3 vr?
and if anyone knos where i can get one that would be great too !

You want a mk3 oil pan on your mk4? What's the benefit of that? I've never heard on anyone doing this.

because our pans are junk, mkIII pans are stronger

the vr pan is aluminum and mine busted even thru my steel skid plate.. so i want a steel pan protected by my steel skid plate so its super durable since im so low and jersey roads suckk..
the mk3s are steel so thats why i wanna see if that will work and i can just get one from a junkyard or something..or new

they definitely work. 12v and 24v have the same block, therefor the pan will work.

Re: VR OIL PAN QUESTION, yes ive searched.. (x0cole0x)

I have a mk3 steel oil pan on my VR. Bolts right up with the mk3 gasket. The only thing I suggest is you have something made to cover the flywheel. I made one out of aluminum.
