    Quite a few ppl have done so on here but in all honesty youd probs find more info over on MIGweb as the user base is so much larger and a common conversion over on there.

    Of all the users on this site that have fitted a V6 into the mk3 - i cant even think of 1 who still uses the site to this day..... (Except DD of course - surely he must have done one of these in his time!)

    it would be good if your an enthusiast as there is a lot of work involved to get stuck into,


    however it would work out cheaper to sell up and buy something quicker, you'd also save on the hassle and costs involved if you have problems.
