oh, i know how its laid out... but it's still a inline to me... intake on one side- exhaust on the other

It's also missing the valley betwee nthe clyinder banks the "v" in Vx engine stands for valley... lol jk. But seriously.. i guess it's subjective to call it what you want.

Maybe they figured VR6 sounded better than Wiggly6.

ZigZag6 would have been a weird thing to call an engine, that's my guess.

Of course those wondering why the runners are varying length have their question answered by that diagram.

you guys are funny

the trumpets are different lengths because of the outlay of the cylinders, this gives a tunned length runner, these motors were designed as a deisel engine but this never eventuated (not sure why) so where turned into petrol engines, if you have ever been lucky enough to pull one appart, you will find that the head still has the glow plug postions in the castings & huge main caps & bolts, the head has double the number of bolts holding it down to a normal petrol engine &many more bullet proof features, many people have made over 400kw SAFELY with just a thicker head gasket (turbo application). these motors are not to be messed with, gearbox & driveshafts are also very strong in them, things like plastic cooling sections like thermostat housing that has a tendency of leaking & crappy plastic timing chain retainers that need to be changed when the chain starts slopping is what lets them down, but people have developed metal replacements for the crappy plastic parts. VW's do suffer from some electrical gliches also, but all in all are a pretty reliable car... if i was to build a fwd all motor drag car, i would be starting with this engine !!!!

hope some of this info is helpful

why are you such a crybaby ------? Do you have down's or something. You need to dump off the miata and buy a Capri. They're all the same, you just need to learn to drive. I'm not going to debate the rediculousness of your ricer ------ post. STFU and /yourself.

hey, fat chicks aren't ideal either!!! FWD cars can be competitive with RWD cars. Look at the speed touring car series. All they have to do is throw a few hundred pounds in the rwd cars to compensate for the failure that is racing a fwd car.

wtf? I've owned multiple vw's. The diff's grenade, aluminum rivets on the ring gear are a shitty idea and constantly break, I've broken main shafts at stock power when driving reasonably, the axles break at 250whp, and they genuinely are pathetically unreliable. I can make this statement from my history with 3 vr6 cars, 2 1.8t's, and a 2.0 jetta. I can't believe you would call the 02a or 02j anything other than a shitbox, sad excuse for a trans.

i bet while you were making this post your hands were just trembling with excitement and you were thinking how much of a hit this would be on MT and how you would get so many rofls and bowdowns, putting you with the likes of philip. news flash, ------: despite what wet fantasies you may have been having as you typed your thread title in all caps, this will not be ToW. this will not be archived. you will not get props. you are a ------. that is all
