Well the Jetta is in for big changes, purchased a 6 speed VR6 4 motion Bora today for parts. My Jetta will be converted to 4 motion to handle the 400 odd HP that it will have from the stage 3 VF supercharger. I'm doing an R32 front for it but still using the Jetta headlights and bonnet so in other words I will be making a bumper for it using the Golf R32 bumper and the Jetta grille/headlight section. There's side skirts too but these need to be modified also to fit the 4 door Jetta body.
The nice thing about the Bora parts car is that it has electric leather Recaro's so I think that i'll be using those too.
Its probably going to take the best part of the winter to do considering that its going to be converted to RHD at the same time.
Spoke to the LTNZ engineer about it today and since it has an LVV plate already the conversion will be no problem.
trying to decide wether to use the lower mileage Bora engine or stick with what I have already since I know Dicardo serviced it every 5000mls with synthetic oil

Awesome. I love the idea of supercharged VR6s, such a wicked sound.
I'm currently talking my Dad into a stage 1 supercharger for his Mk3 VR6... ;D

Keep us updated vert1, should make for good reading!

If you are supercharging then talk to VF engineering, I was there in Dec and was really impressed with their shop and expertese. The Jetta has had the stage 1 setup on it now for about 35-40K miles with complete reliability.
Just drove the car to Napier at easter and its realy given me a  new respect for it with the way it runs on the open road, I mean 6th gear up hills and passing just awesome!
It just pulls like mad in every gear and just seems to keep on going, the rate of accelleration doesn't realy let up until 120mph so it will be very interesting to see what double this HP does.

Awesome project John! Having been in the Bora I can vouch for the super smooth power curve and the torque is very impressive. It will be awesome with double the power and traction  8)

June 1st and the fun begins, just in the planning stages of it actualy since we need parts from the Bora and the Jetta for Filx's project, it will be a bit of parts everywhere kind of thing. Just been looking at some upper rear window spoilers and lower valances for the rear bumper but not having much luck finding what I want, it has to match the R32 bumper and side skirts that I already have.
VF haven't yet finished their R&D on the stage 3 kit yet so still waiting for that too.

The Stage 2 SC upgrade has been ordered and I'm on the waiting list for stage 3 when its released. So the big logistical nightmare will begin soon. Will keep you posted.

Well its here! Will start wrecking it next week, I'm impressed with the spec these cars have. Phil seems pretty keen to get his hands on his VR6 for the wagon so I think that project will get priority over my own car.
The rest of the body kit will turn up from the States soon, ended up getting a rear window roof spoiler too.
Will be a good 6 months to complete this project i think, don't realy want to rush it either.

Good news :)

Is the parts Bora damaged?

Does it have leather recaros and hid lights? They are probably the best bits of the V6 4motion... put them in/on your Jetta ;D
I'm surprised there isn't many import Bora V6 4mo around, they are an amazing car for the $$.

There's a simple reason, RHD 4 motions are not that easy to come by in JP. Most seem to be LHD, mine is LHD and is the same spec with HID and memory seats.

It should have the chrome strips on the rubbing strips and on the front grille too, subtle but nice 8)

If you can work out how to use the memory on the seats let me know, I haven't had much luck!
