Hi guys. I want to know if i can swap a 2jz engine or rb26 to my vw golf. Also, I want to know what's the best 2jz or rb26,what is your opinion ?
I want to do something crazy. If i can swap, let me know the costs and all. Thanks.

Rather than making an inline 6 cylinder, to fit transverse in the engine bay VW staggered the cylinders in there VR6 engines to reduce the length to a bit wider than a 4 cylinder  - seem to recall your choices are inline 6 - you would have to run it longitudinally and best go RWD - a lot of work

Almost anything is possible with hard work, perseverance and lots of cash! I rather like the lunacy of this one

Maybe look at the VR38DETT engine for better packaging? They fit into a Juke after all. That or just buy a GTR instead...
