The Fabless VR5/02M Complete Mount Kit provides a solution to install the VR5 Engine with an 02M Transmission in a MK2. Available in both subframe mounting options; MK2/Corrado G60 subframe or MK3/Corrado VR6 subframe. This kit is a full mount solution, providing an upgraded front cross member and all the mounts needed for the swap.
Our mounts are stronger and stiffer than the factory mounts while also providing some adjustability on the Block Mount. The block mount has two positions; factory height & up to a 16mm drop (16mm lower setting with MK3/Corrado VR6 Subframe, 8mm drop with MK2/Corrado G60 subframe selection). The lower setting on the mount is useful for additional hood clearance but it also helps to level out the engine appearance without impacting the axle fitment. These mounts will have the typical factory VR lean on the top block mount setting and less lean on the lower setting.
These mounts keep the engine in OEM position, which means 02M axles on the market are compatible.
NOTE: The subframe cup has to be moved back to clear the inner CV on the 02M transmission.

In AWD/quattro applications a Corrado G60/MK2 Subframe is needed for clearance. Otherwise modification is required for the axle to clear the engine perch on the subframe.
- 02M/02Q Compatible Axles (not included)
Although our mounts are OEM position, custom axles are required to accommodate the transmission. The 02M/02Q is larger and uses larger inner CV's compared to the factory 02A Transmission in the MK2. Any axles on the market intended for an 02M/02Q in a MK2, MK3 or Corrado application will work with our mount positioning.
- 8v/16v Radiator
- MK3 VR6 Radiator (North American)
Removable lower rad pins are provided for fitment of both rad types listed. For the MK2 rad support, we offer bolt in upper radiator mounts for both options.
A factory fan set up will work, however if space or engine cooling is a concern, a slim fan set up with Spal fans is recommended. Check out our Engine Cooling dropdown under Swap Parts.
