2.8 from a mk3 vr, only done 100k though afro. Using the standard VR cable change box, 02A isnt it? gonna run the hydraulic clutch setup etc but keeping 4 stud rather than going 5 stud wide track so i dont have to lose my wheels. Already got the g60 brake conversion so ive still got 280mm discs on my 4 stud. Gonna be done by next weekend for sure unless i run into any little problems, doing a light bit of bay smoothing and that as well Very Happy

got a fair bit done today, got everything removed apart from the wiring and the dash etc. Most things are going to be painted or at least cleaned before the go back in unless i get carried away and want it done quickly. The engine currently has some polished and blue details its a different colour blue but im going to keep it for a little while i think so i have more time to put the engine in.

Has some trouble getting the subframe out the bolt has siezed into the sleeve

The dent you have to make to fit the vr6 balancer pulley in obviously done before paint so it wont be noticed.

My g60 brakes before getting cleaned up and painted(orange of course) Ordered the discs and pads and already got some TDi hubs that i can bolt them onto as the 8v hubs are all cast into 1 piece.

Got my discs and pads this morning, discs are a fair bit bigger than i expected Very Happy Very Happy went for the brembos in the end with pagid pads thought i may as well get decent ones rather than skimp on whats stopping me. Just waiting for my loom tape to come today... Also trying to track down a VR exhaust gasket is harder than i thought scratch scratch.

Anyway this is how it stands as of last night.

Manky servo and MC will deffo be cleaned up cause they will be a lot more on show now.

Then decided the whole buying a hydro pedal box that bolts in was boring so i set about adapting the mk2 one to take the slave cylinder mount and the ball and socket fixing for the pushrod. Had to use the mk3 clutch pedal and move the pivot point further back on the pedal box to get it in the right place, get the right throw and allow the return spring to work

after spending all bloody morning ringing round and asking... NOBODY had vr6 exhaust gaskets and upper inlet gasket so i finally bit the bullet and rang VW in peterborough not too bad price 30 for all 3 gaskets and there gonna be in saturday morning for me didnt know it would be so hard to get some bloody gaskets. If it was an 8v it would cost about 4p and be here in an hour lol

right got the pedal box in today and got the hole for the slave cylinder in the bulkhead, bolted it all together with the servo and it all fits together perfect so im happy with the outcome of that although my clutch is a little close to my brake so might need a little head on that to move it away dunno yet. Anyway also got my bay in paint tonight so tomorrow i can start putting things back in Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

excuse all the sh1te its WD40 from lubing up the air hacksaw it was a bit seized cause i havent used it in a while lol

looks cool man, but i think it would look a lot neater if you had thrown a bit of filler or high build primer on the nics and scratches around the towers, would have just been a bit neater in my eyes

looks prime though man.

But then it would have taken me a month to put a VR in rather than a week Wink. This is all being done for quickness mate as i want the VR in. If i decide to full on showcar it over the winter it will be coming back out and all tidied up.
