So I'v been doing a lot of reading on the subject and have arrived at few decisions.

1. Ill be going with a 2.8 12v for cost
&
2. Id like to use the VR6 cluster from the donor car (Im not a fan of the beetle cluster)

I would like to know more about the ECU. I know Ill need the one from the donor car but can this be a complete swap from the beetle ECU?

will I need both?

I have seen people try to use both or just an aftermarket ECU i.e. Mega squirt.

Id like to keep the VR6 setup as stock as I can for ease or trouble shooting and reliability.

I appreciate any advice or wisdom on this matter!

Thanks in advance!

You dont need the ecu out of the beetle at all. You can run the complete setup out of the donor car. I would highly recommend using a mk3 ecu. But a mk4 ecu will work just might b a bit harder to pull off.
