    whats needed for a vr6 conversion

    ok peeps, ive got a complete vr6 passat with a sweet engine/box and im looking to put it in a mk3 golf cabby(still looking for the cabby) what will i need to keep from the passat to drop it in the golf.
    i believe the subframes are the same but if some one could confirm it would be a great help,ive also believe its a pretty easy swap, is this so
    thanks in advance

    If you have the whole car that makes it a lot easier transferring bits over to start with.

    What year is the Passat? Was it not worth saving? Not many vr6 passats on the road these days.

    Vr gearbox
    Engine (obvs)
    Wiring loom
    Engine Mounts?
    Cable clutch swapped for Hydraulic.

    Is the cabby 5 stud?
    If so then I think you just drop the lot on the subframe and swap over.

    ECU will need immobiliser disabling.

    passat would have been an easy save as only had rott in rear quarter panel but as ive got a mint tdi one i was looking to have something to play in for the summer.
    the vr6 is/was complete and cabby will be 4 stud. how do i get the ecu immobiliser disabled, will the drive shafts from the golf not just bolt straight onto drive flanges on g/box?
    having already swapped over engines in my tdi im hoping this job wont be to hard

    just really need a gti rear beam for rear disc conversion

    i think the sub frames maybe different and you again may need gti ones from a golf
