    Definitive 24v into a (VR) Corrado thread

    As lots of people seem to be going down this path and are/will be asking similar questions I've stickied this and updated the title

    -dinkus


    Beginneth the thread...

    ==============

    Can someone tell me the ins and outs of how to fit one?
    What parts are required?
    I know the loom needs changing, but does it use the VR ecu, ar 24v ecu? Does it bypass the immobiliser circuit? Do ALL of the VR ancillaries fit the 24v? Do I need to replace any?

    Due to my engine being fecked, Im looking into this conversion seriously. Ive tried to contact Phatvr6, but he hasnt got back to me.

    can anyone offer some advice please?

    cheers dudes

    You need a 24v ECU, with the key and gubbins that goes with it.

    Is it not possible to mount the standard OBD1 VR6 sensors to the 24v engine and just get it remapped?
    Genuine question, I don't know the answer...
    Might be easier than having to change the whole loom and clocks etc etc..

    I would have thought not, because the 24v uses drive by wire if nothing else.

    dr_mat yes it can be done but has to be the later VR coil pack

    as for the throttle body you just make up a bracket for the cable to sit and use a Vr throttle body

    i found this out asking Vince as he didnt see a prob mapping a VR ECU to a 24v

    oh and for the flap control he can get away with using a VTEC control

    Other thing I wanted to ask is does the VR exhaust marry up to the 24v, ie am I going to need a new exhaust manifold, and I've heard there are problems with the clearance of the heat shield.

    nope U need to use the top half of the 24v lump and get the bottom half made up good excuse for a stainless steel jobies and a good flex joint to mate up to the original system

    Also on the mount side Ive been told you cant mount it perfectly in there and even so it sits slightly wrong
