Well I dont really plan on doing the whole cam, intake,and performance
routine with a Vanagon.
I have a friend with a VR6 that had to do a timing chain repair and had
to pull the tranny to get to it.
Poor engineering if you think about it. I also dont think
turbo\supercharging a Vanagon is really
worth the trouble either.
Thanks for the idea though,

>No, if you want a V6, go with the VW VR6.
>In stock form it's just as powerful as the Audi V6.
>AND the VR6 has much more performance potentional.
>I wish there was an easy way to drop a VR6 into my '93 90S.
>I know for a fact there are Schrick cams and an intake manifold that boost

>liters, and gives it a good bump in horsepower too.
>There are also kits to turbocharge or supercharge the VR6.
>None of this is available for the Audi 12valve V6.
