With the help of a local automotive company, NurTechnik, we made an adapter plate for a vr6 throttle body to be used on a 1.8t

It turned out really well. Dimensions are all spot on! I still need to either get shorter bolts going through the TB, or trim the existing ones off, AND get some chamfered headed bolts (so they sit flush) to secure the plate to the TB. There will also be porting only to the inlet on the intake mani, to make it the same diameter as the TB. Rapid prototypers/ 3D printers are the best!

This is just a prototype of what's to come.

Looks good. If it wasn't already on my car, I'd take a pic of the one I have. Made out of a piece of aluminum.

What are the advantages of running this VR6 TB on the 1.8T?

My reasoning was because i was increasing the size of my fmic, and tubing pre/post fmic, to 2.5", and was looking at my tiny stock TB and it looked like the next thing in line.

Plus, moar motivation to go BAT lol.

What about BT? I have one I'm wanting to put on that I got cheap.

You should only increase the tubing post fmic. Especially if youre not BT.
