Already got the ultimate swap dreamed up huh? I don't know the answer but remember, the W8 was designed for longitudinal mounting, and the VR6 (of course) is a transversely mounted motor. That would make things uhh... difficult.
Do this: Get yourself an rx7 gen II rear-end, susp, and tranny to mount the W8 up to. Cut a HUGE hole in the firewall and do a rear drive mk2. COOL
Some guy has a front mounted 350 chevy in an old Bug near where I live. Christ. That thing makes me scratch my head every time I see (hear) it. Imagine the W8 burble coming out of an old GTi.!
