bought a spare MK3 VR6 front Motor mount bracket from ebay since I was lazy and didn't do it right the first time, oil cooler cap is smashed into it right now
testing it out on a spare VR6 trans we have here, the upper left ear needs to be flush to clear oil cooler cap
ABA upper starter bolt should do the trick once its slim
N8zfab doing his thing

well my car pee'd the curb the other day, big motor and MK3 VR6 radiator didn't like each other
guess I didn't trim the rad support back enough
did a week of waiting for new rad, added a little coolant temp sensor (for VDO) gauge, on top rad hose
new radiator and slim motor mount bracket both ready to go on at same time
old vs new
had to get a new floor jack, HFT once again
of course the new rad is slightly bigger making it even more difficult to clear the rad support
still too tight
hacked this thing for way too long
finally all set, I had to support the hood catch with a brace in between top of rad and hood catch since most of the structure is gone (squishy)

No longer has the 3.6. It now has an R32 motor swapped in its place.
