      This may seem from left field.....

      Got a 4.2L V8 Audi or VW ? Then you had better check your intake manifold actuator arms Audi/VW P/N 077-198-327A (077198327A)! The OEM plastic versions quickly break, leaving your intake manifold rod stuck which causes poor idle, drivability, loss of power, and poor fuel mileage. This is a very common problem on the Audi/VW 4.2L V8, an otherwise great engine. The dealer will only sell you a repair kit for nearly $400, and each repair kit only comes with 1 of each length linkage arm. If your vechicle has 2 broken linkage arms, you would need to buy 2 dealer repair kits (cost nearly $800)!

      Our Billet intake manifold arms are made from aerospace grade 6061-T651 aluminum with specially machined black Delrin inserts to provide a perfect fit to the actuator balls. These parts are warrantied for life!

      Dont go to the VW/Audi dealer and pay upwards of $400 for the new actuator kit when all you need are the arms (the actuators themselves rarely fail). And DONT pay that kind of money for another set of plastic arms that will break in quick order.

      Go with GruvenParts.com and NEVER WORRY ABOUT THIS AGAIN !

      Fits the following vehicles:

      2004-2007 VW Phaeton V8
      2003+ VW Touareg V8
      2002-2004 Audi A6/Avant
      1998-2004 Audi A6/S6 Quattro
      2000+ Audi A8/S8 Quattro

      Replaces OEM P/N 077198327A (077-198-327A)

      Excellent! Let us know what else you need, and keep in mind those parts have a lifetime warranty so if anything ever did happen to them just let me know. Take a spin past the VW dealer and tell them how happy you were to NOT spend $800 on more plastic.

      Billet grills would be cool, maybe without the vw logo. Powdercoatd black for me.
      Maybe a billet tow hook...

      Yeesh. I donno about a billet grill, it would cost $1,000 (but look pretty sweet)

      Yeah, that's a little pricey.

      Skid plates though! Still need someone to help us out. Nobody wants a free one?

      One I made recently.

      i know myself as well as a few members of clubtouareg would 100% purchase metal skid plates if they were made available ANYWHERE. I've searched high & low & have not been able to track down anyone who makes these anymore. I'd be willing to be a guinea pig for any test models but I'm a PA local at the moment.

      MKIV VR6 Billet Dipsticks

      GruvenParts.com has released these new Billet Dipsticks for all MKIV VR6 motors including both the 12 valve and 24 valve engines in 2.8L and 3.2L variety.

      These billet dipsticks have a CNC’d handle made from aerospace grade 6061-T651 aluminum specially machined with a chemically resistant O-ring for a perfect seal. The wire is bundled stainless permanently attached to the CNC’d handle, and also with a specially machined oil level indicator tab at the wire base.

      Now is the time to get rid of that f-ugly plastic orange OEM dipstick which is prone to breaking and causing embarrassment in your otherwise gorgeous engine bay!

      This part replaces the OEM dipstick on the following vehicles :

      Volkswagen MKIV Golf, Jetta, Touareg, and R32 with the VR6 engine codes AFP, BDF, BJS, BAA, and BMX

      Email sent. New Touareg owner (Wife named her "Trinity" after the Matrix character. ) but I've also got an 93 Corrado SLC so I'm used to workin' on 'em. Owned VW's since 79 - just totaled our 2000 Jetta TDI - hence the '04 T-reg. Used to work in a VW dealer parts department and based on my experience w/ the nearest VW dealer's parts folk I'll be ordering as much as I can.

      Bought a very much used 04 V8 w/ 119K miles. Can't find proof of t-belt change so I'll do that next month. Needs right outer door trim and the trim below that, right fog light trim, lower center grille and probably more stuff I haven't found yet. Need to rip out the Sirius unit and hook up a 1/8" input jack. Bentley DVD will be on the way after next payday and will update my HEX vag-com to CAN. The belly pan is cracked/semi-lousy repaired so I'm all in for a skid plate - shipping's on me!

      While I was under the car I noticed there are more plastic panels - looks like one under passenger side and one under driver's side behind the wheels. Let me know if you want dimensions on those too. The P.O. managed to somehow crack the driver's side. I've never been much for replacing plastic panels so I'll just fab up some sheet aluminum if y'all don't want to make them.

      Just ordered a set of those snazzy intake linkage arms. At least one is broken on Trinity so if the other one's not it needs replacing anyway. If it's really running worse now than with them fixed I can't WAIT to see what it's like repaired!

      Carl

      Thanks Carl. If you wouldnt mind, remove those broken plastic parts and take us a picture. We can look at all 3 items. We would likely need to have the plastic ones here to measure up. Im sure there will be some questions regarding features - additional protection, drain plug access, desired maximum weight, ect...

      I appreciate your help, these are GREAT trucks and really capable of off roading, its a shame VW used a plastic cover where a metal plate was required to protect the underside.

      I had one plastic arm broken and replaced both with the billet arms. It is definitely worth it , IMO. Good luck!
