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.

They ended distributor quite early. anything that is 94 or newer is pretty much a coilpack system

That will definitely put a damper on my swap plans... From what I have researched, it is best to stick to distributor cars...

From what I have research, swapping a vr6 distro engine into a CEC2 A2 is all plug & play.... While, doing a newer obd engine requires more extensive splicing into the wiring harnesses. Someone correct me if I am wrong, because all of my research is from Vortex...
