Any 90-92 has CEII making the swap pretty much plug and play. Engine in the car from the factory wont matter

Find yourself a wrecked corrado, they use a mk2 chassis and then get the sub frame and the motor out, it will bolt right it but you have to c-section the inner fender well on the right side because the crank pulley will rubb.

It's just as easy as the 8v. It's still CE2.

you can use the 8v just the same. but like said above if you can use a corrado then get one. if not a mk3 will work. But from i hear the passats are harder to use because they have a wider wheel base and the subframe is a little wider. but i think it'll still work. good luck

Passat and MK3 motor mounts are higher so the hood wont clear unless you cut down the mounts. Plus suspension was in the control arms and knuckles.

Hell yeah

Try to get a VR6 from a carrado actually try to get a whole donor car your gonna need the new shift linkage( cable) and a new hydralic clutch assembly.... maybe even the k frame. carrado is built on a mk2 chassis...
