Sorry to drag up the thread again.

I have all the parts sitting around to do this swap(2.9engine with running gear, mega squirt, eaton charger) and was wondering why you didn't,while building the mounts, lower the engine in the bay to allow you to run the original bonnet with the charger? Did you run a short runner intake with this engine? I may have missed that photo.

Thanks

I don't mean to hijack, or carry on a discussion in someone's personal build thread... But I just wanted to make sure I read that right.
You have an OEM RSi, and you're planning on cutting it up to make it RMR? As far as a transmission goes, I would look into What 034Motorsport Did. Euro Audi 100 2wd transmission, Porsche 996 Turbo axles and suspension. All done on a MkIV GTI, so in theory, it should be exactly what you're looking for.
As far as doing this to an RSi? IMO, it's a shame to see such an impossibly rare car go under the knife like that. But it's yours, not mine! :cheese:

Hey this is a great build. Hopefully your dream comes true one day and you can do engine swaps to beetles.

Ever heard of monster miatas? They do engine swaps to miatas and put a v8 in it lol. Do that to beetles except vr6's vrt's and r32's :cool: that would be awesome

loving your build. ..

While you're at it you should have opted for an all wheel or rear wheel drive setup. That would top it all off.
