Product Description

Hand built in house at Eurowise in the USA! Virtually a drop in VR6 engine conversion. Every kit is built from mild steel and tig welded for strength and longevity. Our VR6 conversions do not require any cutting or welding to install. Several stages available depending on power levels and vehicle usage. Now you can swap a VR6 in your Rabbit show car without hacking, grinding, and welding on your freshly painted engine bay! Our conversions make the process completely reversible if wanted. 24 valve / 3.2 VR6 and 3.6 VR6 owners make sure you purchase the specific kit for those engines. This stage 1 is only for 12v

Our axles are built in the USA and are supplied by renowned axle builders "The driveshaft shop" No expenses spared there. We have a 1 year warranty on our axles and unlimited customer support on repairs and rebuilds.

PLEASE NOTE: All kits come powder coated in texture black, please contact us if you would like them in any other color.

Important notes for installation:

**Some additional items may needed to taken into account when swapping**

  • When running 02j transmission and running our manual cable conversion you will have interferance issues with reverse switch, when using 02j shifter tower or transmission you must cut off the mounting flange for the reverse switch
  • late model 02j transmission ( 1.8t and VR6 ) have 108mm axle flanges. These will not work with our axles. However the solution to change axle flanges are very easy. part numbers needed are qty 2 02A-409-355D qty 2 02j-409-359


1. Q: What's the difference between stage 1, 2, 3? Which kit would suit me best?

A: Stage 2 is same as stage 1+ but includes stiffer motor mount bushings and a front core support brace

2. Q: I made my own brackets already, can I buy your axles?

A: Yes, our axles are available but there’s a good chance our axles aren’t going to work with your mounts. They were made specifically for our mounts and only our mounts.

3. Q: I have a 1.8t motor installed with 02a transmission installed and I want to change it to a VR6 can I buy just your brackets?

A: Our kit is designed to move the motor 3 inches more centered compared to the traditional VR6 MK1 swaps using scirocco 100mm axles. With our kit you have sufficient room on the drive belt side to easily remove and install it in the car. There is room for most superchargers to fit as well with our conversion

4. Q: I have a WRD 02A transmission bracket. Can I buy your front bracket and passenger rear bracket?

A: Unfortunately, that bracket they use works with factory axles and ours are custom lengths that work with our own brackets. If you attempted to use any other 02A conversion or VR6 kit with our axles they would come out too short or too long.

5. Q: I have the scirocco 100mm axles already, can I just buy your brackets?

A: Our brackets work specifically with our axles so if you were to install the axles in the car and attempt to use our brackets they will not line up correctly.

6. Q: Does your brackets fit in my mk2?

A: No, they will not.

7. Q: Will my car flip over?

A: No, essentially the VR6 motor is only about 75lbs. heavier than a traditional 16v motor which is very common in an MK1. Imagine strapping a turbo, fmic, piping etc on a 16v and you’d be well over the weight of a VR6 mk1 in the front end.

8. Q: How low is my oil pan going to be?

A: Actually with the mounts in its highest position the oil pan sits only about 1 inch below the lower control arm mounting position.

9.Q: Will factory header work?

A: No it does not, we do offer solutions to solve the issues.

All kits are made to order. Generally are stocked depending on when orders placed, may take 5-15 days build time before shipped. Please disregard UPS arrival date after checking out. We appreciate your patience!
