Default New vr6 on vwforum

It has been awhile since the last time I posted. I think the last time was when I finished the 2.0 with the forged rods. After that I blew a couple of head gaskets and kind of lost interest on the car, I parked it last december with the HG blown for the second time and decided to give it(us) a break.

So out of nowhere came this jetta vr6 with 130k miles black on black leather and literally fell on my lap, I couldnt say no... after a an hour driving it I was sold

It does have your flaws but I am not looking for anything perfect either, all I need is a beastly daily drive.

After bringing the vr6 home I immediately started to take the 2.0 apart, piping, intercooler, cylinder head and turbo as well as the exhaust, since was all open I went ahead and pulled my rods and pistons out as well

Here is the vr6

Its missing the front lip and the front bumper was painted black but the color doesnt match so I will try to repaint it whenever I can

Scuff on the corner of rear bumper and a little on the fender, I want to get it fixed on the same time when I paint the front bumper

Lucky son of a gun. Glad to see the spark is back. How long before you swap the wheels and suspension over?

Haha I know man, I was really lucky with this car

Right now I am still deciding if I should sell the 2.0 with the suspension so I can get a little more money for it or swap it over to the vr6. The turbo will come soon, I am already itching to start ordering parts but as a schooled vw owner I will take care of the maintenance first before going there

Probably sell it easier full oem.

Might have to check the front spring rate on the suspension though. Vr6's are heavy.

Thats what I was thinking, it would work but would definitely put more stress on the parts than they were designed for

And the 2.0 has 170k miles and the stock suspension was really soft/clunky so I might let it go with the fk coilovers. I actually feel good to pass someone a nice car with newer supension as well as the other upgrades on the lower suspension, motor mounts and brakes. Everything else will be stock with a completely stock engine bay and hopefully no CEL when I sell it lol

I can't wait to put a nice exhaust on it, I will probably go with a straight 3" turbo-back and a borla or magnaflow muffler

Even with the stock exhaust I can hear the sweet notes when I push it hard, I wonder what took me so long to get a vr6

Thanks man

Soon I will start a build thread for it so I can keep track of the stuff that it needs. Motor mounts are completely busted, the suspension appear to be stock (and busted), need brakes on all 4 corners, all the bolts under the car look like they have never been touched or replaced, so I got a lot of work ahead of me to get this car in top condition but I'm sure it will be fun
