      Not to derail your thread but you are proposing to swap a stock normally aspirated OBD I 12V into a Mk5 chassis? That seems a bit strange at best.

      At a minimum you should be considering converting that motor to OBD II to make the harness integration a bit more seemless. That OBD I block you have will not have any of the side provisions for the engine mount locations either. Seriously you might want to consider a more modern motor (AFP and up). You can have the motor mount provision, drive by wire and OBD II so things go together a bit smoother for you. Not impossible but I'm baffled as to why you would even consider this.

      i understand ya, the thing is i got both already the mkv does not have a motor in it. but the mk3 vr is up and running. not looking for power, just looking for the possibilities.
