VAG V6 Engine Options

  1. Now then you lovely bunch, I'm after some opinion on a choice of VAG V6 (or V5) lump.

    I've bagged myself a Kennedy Adaptor plate with the VR6 pattern to Vw 'box.

    There are myriad of donor cars out there, a lot of them for pin money but i've never owned a vehicle with any of the potential engine choices.

    So, choices include the typical VR6 (of golf/corrado/sharan variety)
    V5 (VR5 actually) from a Seat Toledo or Golf
    or V6 in various sizes from an Audi A4 B5 (2.4/2.6/2.8)
    and maybe if it is same bolt pattern 2.5 V6 TDI from A6/Passat

    Open to advice/opinion/criticism from all corners as I've no experience of these lumps.

    FYI my van is already running a diesel engine with underslung radiator and T25 gearbox so this engine change would just be because I can.
  2. The biggest most powerful one?
  3. One from a heavy car.
  4. T 25 box... nosecone swap or standard?
  5. The box is a side-shift with t25 linkage and porridge stirrer
    Flakey and Dicky like this.
  6. Stay away from the v5......pretty gutless
  7. ^Compared to a Type 1 or 4 air-cooled?

    Another vote for the 2.5 V6 TDI

  8. Although I love the noise of a VR6, especially a supercharged one (have you seen how cheap the kits are!) it's a TDi vote from me too, suit the vans needs better than the rest.
