The Fabless VR5 02M Complete Mount Kit provides a solution to install the VR5 Engine with an 02M/02Q MK4 Transmission in a MK2 or Corrado. Available in both subframe mounting options; MK2/Corrado G60 subframe or MK3/Corrado VR6 subframe. 

The Fabless MK2 & Corrado VR5 02M/02Q Complete Mount Kit is a full mount solution, providing an upgraded front cross member and all the mounts needed for the swap. Made from mild steel, beautifully TIG Welded and coated with black powder coat for durability.

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 keep the engine in OEM position, which means 02M axles on the market are compatible. These mounts will have the typical factory VR lean on the top block mount setting and less lean on the lower setting. 

NOTE: The subframe cup has to be moved to clear the inner CV on the 02M transmission.

  • 02M Compatible Axles (not included)

Although our mounts are OEM position, custom axles are required to accommodate the 02M. The 02M is larger and uses larger inner CV's compared to factory. Other MK2 or MK3 02M axles on the market will be compatible.

    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 also. 


    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.
