    Yes, VR6 which is one half of the W configuration motors (more or less). The VR6 is called an In-line Vee because it only has a 15 degree offset between the cylinders thus, it can use a single head and fit where most std. V6's can't. You get the smoothness of an in-line and the sound is like no other V6. Very throaty and a nice growl.

    The pics are from a 12 valve motor they also made a 24 valve motor with 4 cams in that head configuration.

    The pics just took me by surprise and reminded me of FrankZ's pics.

    I liked the throaty growl my VR6 had.... wasn't a big fan of the "cling chang CLONK" sound it made when it fell apart though :(

    You wouldn't want one of these to fall on you.

    Timing chain guides??? Valves since it's an interference engine??? The upper and lower chain guides and tensioner is a maintenance issue that is a bitch to fix. Normally they are stout, bullet proof engines but if the guides and/or tensioner goes it can cause some problems especially on the early dual chain VR's ('91-'95).

    Yeah I had an early 90's (93 I think) Passat VR6. I think the official story (it was years ago and I was poor so all I heard was "thousands of dollars") was that the oil pump went, things seized, timing chain snapped, etc. Really just a bad bad run of luck, and even after I (stupidly) fixed it, it never really ran for long again.

    well, it is either that it is a university (apparently) for one woman (woman's being singular possessive)

    or, perhaps it is that exit "469" could be construed to have a sexual -- even homoerotic -- connotation (if the "4" is read as "for", e.g.)
    all the best,
