got this car car just over 2yrs ago for £50
heres a couple of pics of how it looked when i first got it


it was completly standard, just the passenger side windows were all smashed in when the last owner took it of the road due to a blown radiator.
i managed to locate the last owner and ask him what he was doing with it and got told he was going to scrap it.
so naturally i took it of his hands.
so the next day i sourcced and fitted all the windows and a radiator and put it through its mot expecting it to fail and to my surprise it passed
i never really planned on doing much to this car aprt fromm keeping it tidy i eventually ended up lowering and putting on my borbet c alloys. i also fitted 16v rear lights and smoked indicators
this is how it looked


then a year ago my head gasket went, instead of replacing it i decided i would buy my mates 1900 grant motorsport lump and fit that. after spending a few weekends giving it a light rebuid and detailing it i found out that i couldnt use it as it was originally running k-jet and the injector ports were the wrong size (didnt realise there were 2 different size injetor ports on kjet engines till then)
after this i lost interest in the car untill march this year when i finally decided id do a vr6 conversion
spent 2 months watching vr6s on ebay as i was after a bargain. this car is being built on a beer money budget
i eventually won a vr6 for a good price of £420 it had a 2 months mot and a months tax, but it had a possible starter motor fault. this turned out to be a leaking aux water pump shooting water all over the starter and causing it not to work
heres the car


id driven it around for a month till the tax ran out then just parked it up till i could source the parts for the conversion
after aquiring a 2x 16v exhaust system, a b4 passat pedal box and a solid front engine mount
work eventually started on this last week
i now have most the wiring sorted after ripping out all the old alarm system as it was crudly fitted, just need to run a switch feed for the aux water pump and run a wire from the coil packs and a couple of resistors so i can use my mk2 16v clocks and still retain a rev counter
passat pedal box and vr clutch mater cylinder fitted
vr6 subframe fitted and engine mount cut down
mk2 wishbones and rack fitted to subframe
spax psx front struts and spring fitted
engine fitted with solid front mount
16v hubs and brakes fitted will fit vr6 calipers and disc after ive got the thing running
mk3 gear selector fitted
heres a cpl of before and after pics sos about the crappy fone quality never had my digital camera with me



thing still left to do is tidy up the wiring and plumb in the vr6 radiator and figure out where and how im going to mount the ecu

interior is standard vr6 trim but in blue, drivers seat is worn a little on the bolster so £40
wheels could do with a refurb but has 2 decent hankook tyres on an 1 perished budget tyre, sos theres only 3 tyres on them but there is 4 wheels after £40 for them aswell

Nice work Ben, good to see the photos up and the write up smile Look forward to having a go in it smile

progress has been slower than i hoped on this due to the fact ive had no transport and the car being 20miles away
but anyhow ive had the afternoon on it today and managed to fit the radiator in place and get all the plumb work sorted, next time i do this i think i wont be such a cheap skate and actually buy corrado gear cause it was a pain in the arse trying to get it to fit right


also manage to get the rest of the front end bolted in place, its actually starting to look like im going to finish it soon
all ive gotta do now is tidy up all the wiring
mount the ecu (where and how do u guys mount yours)
fit the exhaust and decat
fill it up with fluids
then try and start the thing plan on getting it ready for the mot next wednesday if i can get the above done in time

not really much of an update as i havnt done anything to it

basically i brought another mk2 that i'm going to break as i needed a complete working lock set as my drivers door handle is buggered, needed a roof lining as half of mine was missing since i brought it and a few other bits and pieces like central locking pump etc

so here we go a few shots of my mk2 vr and the car i'm going to break
