I have my VX (n/a 2.2) in pieces at the moment - to replace wishbone bushes and ball-joints, refurbish the wishbones and fit the Spitfire toe-links / brace kit and VRSAS. Rear calipers off to BCS Automotive for refurbish...etc.
My daily driver is a 2002 VW Golf Mk IV V6 4Motion which I have owned for 10 years and put 120,000 miles on in my ownership.
I have just acquired a 'spare' 2003 VW Golf Mk IV V6 4Motion with sub 50k miles.
Has anyone on the forum dropped the VW VR6 engine / gearbox into a VX?
It is heavier than the Z22SE engine - 170kg versus 140kg - and it doesn't have the Z22LET power output - 250 bhp versus 204 bhp (I don't have the equivalent g/box weights - does anyone know what these are?) but with a bespoke exhaust, which will be needed anyway, and a gentle re-map I can get 240bhp.
Is this totally pie in the sky, or doable?
