Hi All, new to the forum so please take it easy.
Has anyone installed a 2.8 VR6 engine in a Golf 5. Is this possible?

I doubt anyone has, I'd consider selling the golf and start looking for a R32 Much easier

Today canbus and electronics integration at every level with many control modules basically makes projects like that a non starter unless you don't care that some of the stuff won't work after.
If you are not an absolute computer and hacker genius and very handy with a spanner as well that can do it all yourself then don't even consider it.
