      Billet VW MK2 Pulley Kit !

      GruvenParts.com already has the MK2 1.8/2.0 16V Billet Crank Pulleys ready for immediate sale. We are now announcing the Pre-Order of MK1 – MK2 Billet Water Pump, Power Steering, and Power Steering on Crank Pulleys! Please see the note at the end regarding the Pre-Order format.

      Our pulleys are all precision machined from 6061-T561 Aircraft grade aluminum to a runout of less than .001” on one of our HAAS CNC machining centers. The products are completed entirely on the CNC mill, and therefore have a nearly chrome surface finish.

      Order these as a complete set and SAVE $$$$

      Billet MK2 16V Crank Pulley

      GruvenParts.com has for immediate sale the 16V 1.8L and 2.0L MK2 crank pulley for 16V engines found on Scirroco, GTI, Jetta, and Passat. This billet aluminum crank pulley weights just under 680 grams – over 3 times lighter than its OEM counterpart! These are machined with 4 through mounting holes and 4 tapped holes for all OEM pulleys to mount up. This also includes the factory timing mark as well. Fits all MK2 Scirroco, Golf GTI, Jetta GLI, and Passat with 16v 1.8L or 2.0L engines. Replaces OEM P/N 027-105-243 (027105243)

      Billet MK1 and MK2 Power Steering, Power Steering on Crank, and Water Pump Pulleys

      GruvenParts.com has also designed these billet water pump, power steering, and power steering on crank pulleys and are currently in pre-release status on them. These pulleys will weigh approximately 1/3 of the OEM pulley weight (and look much nicer!). These are made on the exact same machining center which our crank pulleys are made on. Fitment is as follows :

      Power Steering on Crank Pulley – replaces OEM P/N 026-105-255D (026105255D). Fits : 84-89 Scirocco, 85-92 Golf/GTI/Jetta, 90-91 Passat with 1.8L or 2.0L 4 Cylinder engines. Please verify your OEM part number before ordering.

      Power Steering Pump Pulley – replaces OEM P/N 051-145-255 (051145255). Fits : 84-89 Scirocco, 85-92 Golf/GTI/Jetta, 90-94 Passat, Corrado G60 all years, and 84 Rabbit with 1.8L or 2.0L 4 Cylinder engines. Please verify your OEM part number before ordering.

      Water Pump Pulley – replaces OEM P/N 027-101-031 (027121031). Fits : 84-89 Scirocco, 85-92 Golf/GTI/Jetta, 90-94 Passat, Corrado G60 all years, and 84 Rabbit with 1.8L or 2.0L 4 Cylinder engines. Please verify your OEM part number before ordering.




      Pre-Release Note at the End

      The Billet Crank Pulley is currently available. However, the Billet Water Pump, Power Steering, and Power Steering on Crank Pulleys are in Pre-Release status. Once we receive 10 orders for them, we will manufacture them and ship. The lead time once we receive 10 orders is approximately 3 weeks.

      If we do not ever receive 10 orders (within 30 days of this posting), we will cancel the program and refund 100% all Pre-Orders. Please help us by spreading the word so we can deliver these great additional pulleys !

      Paid Pre-Orders

      We are also working on the other pulleys for MK2.

      The billet crank pulley will offer the most gains so we started with that 1, and we are also using that to gauge interest in MK2 performance parts.

      When additional pulleys become availble, we will extend the package deals to those who purchase the billet crank pulley by itself.

      Any other questions feel free to call or email.

      Thanks,

      You guys are the shizz. I have your complete pulley set on my MKIV 1.8T GLI and my 1.8T MK2. I also just ordered your MK2 radiator neck. When you get the complete set of 16V pullies I'll get a set for my Scirocco.

      Exactly that would be awesome,
      And I just dropped my engine/trans in the car this weekend, otherwise I'd be up for a crank pulley

      Thanks for all replies, please help us spread the word out there on this part. We do have plans to build many more parts for MK2 but we need to see some interest (ie, sales) on this pulley before they will commit to going after more.

      Much more coming, Im sure there will be lots of interest in parts like these for MK2, its just a matter of people finding out about it.

      Its over 3 times lighter than stock steel pulley. Its good for ~ 5 hp gain but the difference in driveability is very noticeable. The engine builds revs quicker and is generally alot less lethargic. This is an excellent mod to combine with a lightweight flywheel. Completely changes the feel of the engine. We've never had 1 come back!

      MKIII 2.0 ABA Billet Lightweight Crank, Tensioner, and Alternator Pulleys – NON-UNDERDRIVE!

      www.GruvenParts.com offers precision CNC billet lightweight (and Non-Under-driven) crank, tensioner, and alternator pulleys for the ABA 2.0 engines. The pulley set reduces engine rotating mass by over 4 lbs to help you squeeze out every last bit of power, without the problems associated with under-driving components. Our billet tensioner comes ready to install with a 20K rpm SKF bearing to replace the cheap OEM plastic pulley. The crank pulley is a slick dual design which incorporates the power steering v-belt pulley with a light mounting flange (new shorter grade 12.9 attach bolts included). Finally, the alternator pulley is a paper light version of the OEM steel pulley to minimize parasitic losses.

      Check out www.GruvenParts.com for all the billet goodies!

      These parts replace the following OEM part numbers :

      037-105-243A (037105243A) ABA crank pulley
      037-105-253 (037105253) ABA power steering pulley
      028-145-278E (028145278E) ABA serpentine tensioner pulley (also fits MK3 TDI)
      021-903-119 (021903119) ABA alternator pulley

      Billet 16V 2.0 and 1.8 Crank Lightweight Pulleys!

      GruvenParts.com is proud to release billet MK2 1.8/2.0 16V Billet Crank Pulleys !!

      GruvenParts.com has designed CNC billet aluminum pulleys for the 16V 1.8L and 2.0L MK2 engines found on Scirroco, GTI, Jetta, and Passat!. Our pulleys are precision machined to a run out of less than .001 on our HAAS CNC mill-lathes. The products are completed entirely on the CNC mill, and therefore have a nearly chrome surface finish. This billet aluminum crank pulley weights just under 680 grams – over 3 times lighter than its OEM counterpart! Comes correct with exact mounting holes and provides tapped holes for OEM power steering pulley to mount up. Includes the factory timing mark as well.

      Fits all Scirroco, Golf GTI, Jetta GLI, and Passat with 16v 1.8L or 2.0L engines. Replaces OEM P/N 027-105-243 (027105243)

      Absolutely, we can do 1.8 8V too...

      How many would be interested, likely same price as the one you see here.

      Isn't the crank pulley also an important harmonic balancer?

      Our pulley is lightened and balanced, it does not affect vibration of crank.

      Just revs FASTER !

      this is the only thing keeping me from doing it, since the stock pulley is a harmonic damper.

      The stock pulley is not a harmonic dampener, that is a misnomer that’s been printed in the repair manuals forever, but it is not accurate. A mass cannot dampen vibration.

      A mass can move the harmonic frequency above the realistic rev range (ie, past 7K rpm) though. But in the case of these short crank length VW motors, damaging harmonic frequencies do not occur with or without the crank pulley attached. So, you could theoretically go to a weight of zero on the crank pulley and still not induce damaging harmonic frequencies into the crankshaft. The heavy OEM crank pulley is used for driveability – they want to slow the accel and decel of the engine to allow the fuel management to prevent a dip in idle during rapid decel.

      As long as your not a grandma driving to the supermarket on Sundays, you will appreciate the gains of lighter rotating mass and learn to live with a slight chop in the idle during rapid decel. The benefit of driveability and power exceed the slight reduction in smoothness of idle.

      im not trying to beat on you but, it has rubber layer in it, so should be a harmonic dampener
      but that said im still tempted...haha
      wonder how driveablity would be with a l/w flywheel as well.
