    Aye, but I have no access to welding equipment, I'm going to have to get a load of tools to do this as well. Guess this is the way to learn how to install an engine.

    I somehow envisage my C being off the road for a long long time.

    Sell me the engine then as I have access to a VW garage at the weekends and a VW mechanic mate who's already done a 20vt conversion to his C :wink:

    James totaly agree with you for the finish etc i dont think half of us on here can achieve that finish as you have, myself inclusive

    but thats the finish you choose so you can have the little things like the pump priming when you open the door personaly i think is OTT as Ive never not known a car not to start as the pump didnt prime for long enough and off course youll have the full Vag-com but Idont think the VAg com on the VR is that bad itself.

    I look like at this way, The one reason someone would put this engine in to their cars if they wanted a new more power version of what they have already.

    So if that means you can still use your original VR6 ECU loom etc (some work will be needed wires to what ever sensors etc but not alot) get the ECU fully mapped to your engine, so youll get the best power out of it and will work as well as before I dont see the point of changing all the loom etc I think its to much.

    I just look at it this way does it as simple as possible (without making more work than needed) but do it properly.

    haway man for christ sake its not that bad.
    Dink how many engine swaps have you done in your time? just curious.

    I dont recall having all these problems and the engine has been in a running state in my car for the past 5 months. Granted the exhaust thing I didnt know about as I had to use the 4motion exhaust, and you dont have to weld in a bulk head as you are not fitting the full mk4 loom.

    So sit back, take a deep breath, and chill

    p.s. Phat went to extensive lengths to get his r32 running on vr management and concluded it wasnt possible as the cam timing sensors and pickups are totally different between the 2 engines.

    ah Vince didnt not mention that

    can you just change the timing on the ECU if your reprograming it ?

    alos were the VR6 cam sensors? i thought it was just crank pick up?
