    VR6 Swap + dangerously low + Rust + TLC = This Beast! Sometimes I want to punch her in the throat, other times I wanna snuggle on the couch with her! My chocolate sour patch kid. Awwww

  5. My cooling situation is horrible at the moment. Radiator under the belly of the beast. Used a kep plate to mate 091 trans to VR. Engine and trans raised 4" shift rod uses u joints. Custom exhaust magnaflow. Raised vanagon decklid. Anything ya wanna know in particular. If you want my Instagram is los_huevos and my name on YouTube is phototorque. My build thread is on thesamba under bansheelos. Check it out my highs and lows lol
     
  6. Los Huevos ...the balls hahaha you must have big ones to drive a 40 year old van with a VR6 in it! :p esta muy loco vato!
    I'll take a look.....ive done a tdi into a 84 rabbit truck (easy) and I'm partway through a 20valve turbo into a mk1 Jetta so I'm not too bad with the process, just trying to get my head around the transmission side of things as usually I swap that out with the donor vehicle one :)
     
  7. I think a quick build thread;) is needed with lots of pics :thumbsup:I love those coloured buses :hattip:

    @Luis Navarro Yup "we've got huevos" lol Im none for VR6 swaps. Did a aba swap into a rabbit. This bus build was a lot for me. I have 3 kids under 5 so I would only go out to work on the bus once everyone was sleeping. As far as the trans you can run the bus trans w/ the kep adapter. I have been looking into a flipped 012 Audi trans jump u to 5 or even 6 speeds. If I had to do it allover again w/ the vrswap in my bus I would not run the motor and trans longitudinal. I would sit it the way it is stock position running the VR6 trans! Thats would I would do!
