No no, the VR6 is a totally different engine. Same displacment, similar 
output, different powerband from what I've been told. The VR6 is a 15 
degree V6 capped by a single cylinder head, 12 valves per cylinder. 
Audi's is a 60? degree I think. It's to bad Audi didn't get to use the VR 
in their cars, lots of aftermarket parts to up the power.
