    Use Stealth to code out the ECU, he is very knowledgeable.

    The VR6 VSS is a worm drive the same as the Mk1 Cable, and in the same place but iirc the Mk1 worm drive bolts onto the box where the VR6 Sensor screws into the box. I know other people have got round it though, I'm sure there is a car out there that has a cable with a screw in worm drive, probably an earlier Corrado, Ibiza or something. Or I might just be talking bolx...

    How do you guys find the 12v VR6 gearbox with the R32 engine? What kind of RPM are you getting at 70mph in 5th gear and what size wheels are you running?

    cheers

    Sometimes I wish I had a 6th gear, but only because it gets through the gears so quick! RPM wise it's no different to the VR6.

    Hi Kip,

    Is that running 15" wheels? 195 x 50 tyres?

    Do you find the rpm to be excessive at 70?

    I have an have an 02j FBK gearbox from a golf 2.3ltr V5. I'm planning to run 195 / 45 / 15's on my car and looking at the gear ratios would do 3500rpm at 70mph!

    The ratios are:

    Final drive ratio: 3.938
    1st: 3.300
    2nd: 1.944
    3rd: 1.360
    4th: 1.034
    5th: 0.816

    I'm wondering if anyone runs this box with an R32 and changed the 5th gear out to a better ratio?

    The rpm is exactly the same as a vr6 as it's the same gearbox and flywheel. I've heard about the v5 gearbox but as you have found the ratios are daft for running 15s, I did wonder if you could use the v5 and somehow combine it with a tdi like the g60 final and tdi 5th trick.
    I don't know what rpm I'm doing at 70 as I haven't sorted tacho yet

    Hi guys,

    I have an R32 motor in my car, originally a 16v. I put the VR6 radiator in it which has meant I need a new bonnet stay. The 16v bonnet stay fouls on the top hose elbow that goes into the top of the radiator. Am I correct in thinking I need a VR6 bonnet stay? Could anyone please confirm and if possible post a pic of the VR6 bonnet stay they're using? I'm in New Zealand so want to make sure I only buy one and get it right the first time!! Cheers

    Hi, mine was a 16V and I also upgraded to the vr6 rad (still 16v slam panel. I dont remember the stay fouling the hose. I am on a late spec 16V (raised bonnet), is yours an early spec? Can't you just bend the stay as needed to give clearance?
