Appreciate the work going forward. But another VR MK2 coupe? A little played out if you ask me. Stick a 2.5 CBT in there with a tune. Or a 2.0 TDI...... :D

MK1......but yeah.

I have 99% of the VR related stuff from a 95 Jetta if you need a donor. Was a runner, about 200k on it. I did not salvage the wiring inside the car, but I do have from the firewall forward.

As much as I love my VR, I would never put one in a MK2. The 2.5 is a cool idea. I want to put a newer 2.0 16v in the GLI...
