VW VR6 engines (that I know of) are installed transverse (side-ways).  Audi
(88-92) 80/90 series transmissions and drivetrains are setup for a
longitudinal engine (running front to back).  Definitely NOT a bolt in, and
as far as adapting it, you'd be looking at a whole lot of fabrication and
even at that, I don't think it would fly.  As they say though, with enough
cash, anything is possible, but I'd guess you'd have to invest twice what
the car is worth to make it happen.

Has any body thought of putting a VW VR6 into a, lets say, 89 90 quattro.
Direct bolt-up to the tranny?  Adapters available?

I have just seen an engine for a "reasonable" cost and was wondering.
