MK2 GOLF VR6 2.8 24V BDE build

Post by minehunter1979 » Wed Sep 11, 2019 5:52 pm

Good day.
I have a golf mk 2 jumbo 1990 gti big bumper fully restored body and 80% interior as well as the underneath and more.
I bought a BDE VR6 2.8 24V import engine coming out of the UK FROM A GOLF 4.

In the next few weeks please assist me in my questions.
# 1. Has anyone done this build?
# 2. What engine mountings will work between BDE engine and standard GOLF Mk2 engine bay? I still have my original mk2's.
# 3. With the electronic Throttle Body, How should i go about it? Should i change acceleration pedal (Electronic and which car and how does that work) or should & will a AAA VR6 throttle body work with the cable and this way don't have to change my pedals.
#4. I want to take off the tappet cover cause it needs a good polish. Does Goldwagon or vw stock gasgets for this engine cover or will the R32 one fit ? (Already took of intake manifold)
#5. Where can i find a wiring harness / engine loom for this BDE VR6 2.8 24V?
#6. Should i go aftermarket (Spitronics/ Dicktator) and how does it work to control all the sensors and things?
#7. Or should i find original ECU?

Oh and by the way. Did i mention i am not a mechanic.
I am in Cape Town. Is there anyone that can assist me to get this project on the road or just advise me in my questions?

Interested to see how this turns out. I’m keen on doing a similar swap on my mk2 at some stage. Will probably go the 12v route though.

Watch this, some great info on the conversion.
