headstuds diameters are different as well IIRC

as well as coolant passages you mean? I knew about the headstuds.

no...it can be done

Agreed, i recall a reliable rumor that it can be done, someone please chime in about it. That Velicity Tuned guy is porting one for a 2.8 block. REMEMBER THAT A 2.8 intake manifold will not fit on the 3.2 head, they have different dimensions, and if you use the .:R mani. then the .:R intake tube and TB would probably be in order.
Further more, where did you guys hear that the water passageways do not match up? I have not heard that but am eager to read about it.

Powerdubs R32 Head top & Stock 24v BDF head below... the only thing that is different is the head bolt dia. Everything else matches right up http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
Any good machine shop should be able to line bore the head bolt holes to the proper size.....

enjoy

They have my block right now. Iv seen there set up and its pretty legit. They specialize mostly in Vdub engines. Although I would encourage you to do a head swap yourself as the most difficult part is setting the timing and if you have a bently manual it should be straight forward.
Be advised that many people think that swapping heads is not doable, so they may tell you that it will not work.

Re: (UpstairsVR6)

it does work, I have this setup in my rado at the moment, You have to use the 2.8 headstuds, they do fit thru the r32 head, also you use the 3.2 headgasket. you have to use the r32 fuel too. If you keep the mk4 management, u have to runt the r32 intake mani, tbody, ecu, and the engine bay wiring for the R. Im running SEM and an SRi so none of that stuff matters for me. everything else mechanically is the same and done the same way as if it were a complete 24v or complete R32 ( i.e timing chains, rails, tensioners, accessories ect.)
