    Filling mounts with resin can make them quite 'stiff' I believe and overly so... you would have to ask people that have done it but I would personally use VT mounts...

    Bill did have an R32 with a HPA kit fitted in many moons ago... that had the rather solid poly bush style mounts on it and the knock sensors were having a funny 5 minutes with them...

    Changing over the power steering pump required the pulley to be removed first before you’re able to get to the mounting bolts.

    With all the ancillaries bolted on it’s almost time to lay the loom back over

    This is correct. You need the mounts ON THE ENGINE from the vr6 (I’m using the 2.8 mounts).

    * You can re use the s3 chassis to mount part (the one with the rubber) *

    So I’ve filled both sides with resin and they’re stiff but I think I’m used to it now. People who’ve not been in my car before can tell but it’s all peachy for me. Ride quality isn’t bad at all.

    Loom mostly plugged back in. Just have two plugs that physically can’t be plugged in unless the inlet manifold and intake pipe is installed.

    Had a bit of a battle with the clutch slave bleeder blowing off I so wasted a bit of time having to remove the starter then pushing it from behind to be able to re attach the bleeder properly.

    Next - to go ahead and torque up all bolts that were removed.

    Now that all the driveshaft, gearbox and mount bolts are torqued up it’s time for some smaller jobs

    Changed the plug for the oil pressure sensor with a cut and solder

    550EC985-0F47-4DBC-ADC8-D1734403A3C7.jpeg
    Put in some fresh gearbox oil because I had an incident aka forgot to drain it before removing the transfer case

    ... and in goes break in oil!

    Had to figure out a way to mount the aftermarket FPR.
    3AA0D635-3EC0-417A-AF14-EADD1BF67420.jpeg

    But ended up going with the option to use the in built FPR they use in the next model up. Pictured is the oem fuel filter where the mk5/tt8j fuel filter goes. It has
    - fuel in
    - fuel to rail
    - 4.bar pressure regular to return line
    Part # WK69/2 (4bar) or equivalent

    All I had to do was make up a return hose with come quick connects - just used some bits from the wreckers.

    Cam cover wrinkle painted in black - much easier to care for!

    Most of the car was back together so decided to upload 3.2 software and start up!! ... or not start up... car didn’t run :(


    Slept on it and remembered that
    I grounded one of the wires to a throttle body bolt = not connected to ground. Oops!

    Once that was sorted I got the engine fired up! ... codes ensued!

    These two were strange however.

    8DB84A10-B606-4B25-9EFB-4BA391CD991D.jpeg
    This was strange - given its summer and
    Was 30 degrees C that day!!! When starting up the car the measured value went further into negative until - - was displayed ... hmm.
    So I looked toward wiring.
    98209AB1-27E0-465F-A194-44112691DBD4.jpeg

    Upon changing back to the mk4 MAF these issues disappeared. Lesson?

    Don’t use a 3.6 MAF!

    I thought I was ready to put it back together but after running till engine up to temp I got this
    8EB06F89-3D14-4138-8D8F-3AF6CF2A911E.jpeg

    Then while finding the issue leaking hose I found injector #6 was leaking. So...
    BEE7C72F-D73F-49EC-890F-248535ADF663.jpeg
    Front off again to fix the issue. Getting to the rail =
    - disconnect coilpack plugs
    - remove packs
    - remove all vacuum lines and intake piping
    - removing mounting bolts
    - Front down as in the pic
    - then you can get to the manifold front bolts

    Hassle!!!

    But we got there

    That’s true he’s rebuilt his 3 times before I even started mine ha

    so I’d I wouldn’t be able to use a vibratronics mount there then or would I need to mix a 1.8t and a v6 one ?

    Thanks Ash. Was trying to get it done before Friday to take on a b-day track day. Not sure if it’ll be broken in enough though :(

    Haha it helps now I know my way around the thing pretty well. Engine leveller on crane - key equipment!!!

    Re: VT mounts - you will be able to use the gearbox side mounts, but you will need a VR6 specific ones for the engine side.

    Snuck this one on before work. Was considering driving it to work and back but too much idling traffic made me choose otherwise.

    Oil and filter change tonight for 2nd lot of running in.

    @<tuffty/> wow those mounts are expensive! (but probably well worth it)

    This is the first oil change on the engine - it feels nice and strong both acceleration and when coasting and letting the engine do the braking


    rounded.jpg
    The state of the oil drain plug! hahaha oops

    Lucky I was able to just take the cap from the dead 3.6 and pop it on. 300km's on this 2nd oil change and the next draining of oil shouldn't be as messy as this one!

    Yeah that was the plan but it’s deifnitley an impossible task. Will go go karting or something instead haha

    The intake bodge - which goes from the 2.8MAF that is taped onto the intake pipe that has an unused breather port near the TB

    Found the proper sized MAF (from a mk5) which luckily came with the
    Intake pipe that eliminates the unused breather/sensor.

    78683107-3713-4561-9DE6-DEF67C0D4A24.jpeg
    I did try to fit this heatshield for using the pod but clearly it didn’t fit. Got to think of a way to make that work...

    1C1E32EA-28E6-4F43-8EC8-5D3964D15F8B.jpeg
    So this was one of the last three codes to get rid of. Both rear o2’s not working so well so I set out to find a definition for the me7.1.1.

    Couldn’t find one but I did find an excel file giving the addresses. Found all the ones
    related to deleting the above error, plugged the addresses into a modified definition from the 7.5 and, checksummed and tried out the flash ... next thing you know

    and have just gassed up my a/c - the compressor that i got with the VR6 seems a tad tired. I never charged it up before thinking that the 2.8 was only going to be temporarily on.

    Only blowing cold for 5-10 mins then it doesn't work anymore....

    Should've switched it out for the S3 one while doing the swap... hopefully my mech. won't charge the full amount next regas... *fingers crossed*

    Can anyone more “in the know” suggest how I could make the VR6 sound more wookie-ish?

    Currently the setup is 3” cat back, centre resonator and straight muffler ...

    The car sounds great when revving on idle but when there’s load it’s quite muted and doesn’t really give that distinct VR6 Wookiee sound.

    That must be the issue.
    As that would be a very high flow and audible cat-back system in any car

    Maybe Sandip will chime in, his had that classic ‘chewie’ sound you’re after
