Concerning the two bell housings...
Concerning the two bell housings you identified for use in the VR6 engine swap, the R32 engine will likely come with a bell housing. Is the length going to be the same? If so could I not redrill for the Rialta?

I have access to a machine shop so knowing that I can rework the old bell housing would save me the $1000 for a new one.

yes you can , i do not see why not , i would leave the holes that do not line up alone and drill new ones to match

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
