      Audi/VW 4.2V8 Intake Linkage Arms !

      GruvenParts.com 4.2L V8 Intake Manifold Linkage Arms Warranted for Life !

      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

      Nobody ever sent dimensions. I still want to make those, think it would be an excellent addition to Touareg, and quite frankly I cant believe they dont come with 1 standard.

      Can anyone help us with dimensions ?

      I'm still interested in what you guys can pull together. And I think there's wider demand for a plate with OEM-like fit. Especially if it doesn't interfere with oil changes (anymore than the stock plastic does). Good luck & keep us posted--Chris

      OK let me know. Please email paul@gruvenparts.com with shipping details so we can get ahold of it and start on a design. Good suggestion on the oil changes, we'll make it where those are easy with the plate installed!

      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...

      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.

      1. actual skid plate, or cardboard template of design

      2. target price


      We can certainly make this part, guys. We need some help to get started. Anyone who can provide assistance with design gets a freebie for helping. Please email directly on #1 and please post up on #2.
