Anyone else had this issue? Can't find any information on it. I used a S&P kit to mount the engine. Everything is moved as far to drivers side as the mounts will allow.

Also curious where people are getting axles for mk1 swaps. My understanding is 16v scirocco and 86-92 cabrio axles/spindles fit. Can I get these online by say shopping for a 90 cabrio and ordering the axles it lists?? Not many scrapyards around here have these old VWs anymore.

Yup. been there. Used the big hammer to massage that frame rail.

You need 100mm inner CVs, the cars you have mentioned should be correct.

Good luck.
