Your 96 VR motor will fit Jetta, Golf, Passat depending on the year some mods would be needed however, 93 -98 Jetta and Golf are exactly the same under the hood as far as frame/body if going from a 2.0 to a VR you will of course have to change motor mounts, rad,tranny, drive shafts front struts and a few other things. Easiest way is to take a whole donor car and swap the engine trany still attached to the A frame, sounds like alot of work but it is easier that way, It will bolt right up with the complete A frame swap, years 88-92 93-98 Jetta and Golf. Good luck
