Details

This product is made, designed, fit and tested by Fabless Manufacturing in Canada. Over a year of Research and Development has gone into the design and fitment of this kit. It’s been a long time coming and we are excited to finally share this MK2 VR6 solution with you all.

Engine Mounts

The engine mounts are made out of steel and are TIG welded. The mounts come finished with black sandtex powder coat and feature polyurethane bushings and stainless steel bushing inserts. These mounts are heavy duty and can stand up to the job. The polyurethane bushings add stability, rigidity and handling while keeping driver comfort and minimizing vibration.

Tubular Front Cross Bar

Our Tubular Front Cross Bar adds strength and rigidity while still maintaining driver comfort. This item features an integrated jack point right under the front engine mount. The Polyurethane Jack Pad (Add-on) fits in the square cutout to protect the powder coat and prevent unnecessary scratches.

Axles

The axles and CV joints allow fitment between the 02A/02J transmission and MK2 factory 4-bolt spindles. The axles were designed for this application and are a custom length to compliment the centered engine position. They are corrosion resistant, heat treated and nitrated which makes our shafts durable and stronger than factory MK3 VR6 shafts. Mounting hardware, gaskets, boots, clamps and grease are included.

Additional Information

Compatible with MK2 8v control arms or our MK2 Tubular Control Arms for improved handling. Since we utilize the MK2 subframe you can also run factory sway bar.

You can run the hydraulic clutch seamlessly in your MK2 factory pedal assembly with our Hydraulic Clutch Conversion Kit.
