If you were at import wars this past weekend then maybe you saw the vr6 cabby. It's possible. The 1.8t is a much easier swap because it uses the same mounts as other 4 cylinder motors. So it should bolt right in to your car. I know it does to mk2's and it should with the mk1 chasis also. Then it's just wiring.
Whichever you decide i would love to see some pics of the finished product.

A vr6 is do able but make sure you weld every body flex point on your car.And make sure you use the right suspension setup right away.I am possiably doing this to my rabbit converalbe soon.
