Hello all, I'm looking at a VR6 GLX in need of an engine replacement. Should I find another motor, one that "ran when it was removed", in the 120K mile range, any suggestions on what I might consider doing before installing? Only objective would be longevity, not performance. Appreciate any feedback on this.

I would suggest doing timing chains+ guides (unless you're sure they were done), the crankshaft seal, new flywheel bolts, reseal timing covers etc, and maybe a valve cover gasket. Intake manifold gasket + exhaust manifold gasket.

This comes from my experience of doing all this at 150K on my mk2 GTI with a '95 Passat VR6
