VS V6 Berlina Auto
VR 1994 - 4HDD first electonically controlled auto.
VR II 1995 - 5HDD extra solenoid fitted to provide softer "LOCK UP" torque converter clutch apply.
VS 1996 - 6HDD the design of the previously added solenoid was changed and is not backwards compatible with the previous model.
VS II 1997-7HDD basically the same as the 1996 unit except the thread size of the cooler pipe unions was enlarged.

Also I think the VR boxes have a 12 pin electrical connector and and VS boxes 13. Many people have VS boxes in VR's just not sure what they did with the extra pin I think without it the torque converter doesn't lockup.

But I could be very wrong

I think vr series 1 is the only one with 12 pins,the extra pin is for the tcc solenoid.the only real difference between the 4hdd to 7hdd that i know of is the the tcc solenoid, tcc valve(or iso-conv valve),speed sensor\housing and maybe the 3-2 shift valve.They all should fit with the right mods.I got told countless of times from wreckers i only could fit a 4hdd to my vr(ended up rebuilding the box)But when the gearbox blew up in the parents vr i end up fitting a 6hdd with minor mods.

What minor mods did you have to do ?
