      We've looked into them in the past, manufacturing cost is just too high in comparison to new OEM, we just can't compete. I completely agree and have one aluminum flange on my 16v, but they were available on some cars back in the day, but still had to use a new plastic ABF front flange

      Billet VR6 Crack Pipes for ALL VR6 Engines Corrado thru R32!

      MACHINED FROM 6061-T651 ALUMINUM TO EXACTLY MATCH OEM PIPE DIMENSIONS - OURS DOES NOT COME WITH CHEAP THIN WALLED TAPPED FITTINGS LIKE OTHER LESSER PIPES !!

      12V and 24V VR6 Coolant Pipes aka Crack Pipes

      GruvenParts.com was the 1st to build this part and it’s what started us off! We manufacture this pipe EXACTLY to match the OEM part shape so there is NEVER a fitment issue. Be careful when considering other billet pipes which do not match the exact shape of the OEM pipe. The fitment of this part is tricky and the shape MUST BE IDENTICAL to the OEM part to ensure correct alignment between the water pump and thermo housing.

      If you have a billet crack pipe in your VR6, chances are it was made by us. Hand crafted in our Aerospace shop using O-rings from the Boeing 777, proven by many hours of track time, it's the highest quality crack pipe you can buy. It's on all of our track cars and has withstood countless hours of track abuse! Our pipe has a modular design which allows you to plug the oil cooler feed line with a ¼ NPT plug if installing an external oil cooler. Ours can also be ordered with a chrome plated drain valve for quick and clean coolant flushes. The pipe can also be ordered with a brilliant chrome finish for those seeking the ultimate engine bay bling!

      If you dont want to do this job again, buy the LIFETIME WARRANTED GruvenParts.com billet CrackPipe !

      Make sure to see our website for the complete installation DIY

      The 12V version replaces OEM p/n 021-121-050C (021121050C) found in 12V VR6 : VW Corrado, Golf, Jetta, Passat, and Eurovan.
      The 24V version replaces OEM p/n 022-121-050 (022121050) found in 24V VR6 : VW R32, Golf, Jetta, Eurovan, EOS, Audi : 3.2L V6 TT and A3

      Seriously? You finally made these things? They look perfect. Unfortunately rot has won the battle and I am parting my car. So won't be able to buy something I've bugged you guys about for years lol. Good luck with these. Only ones available for Mk3's anymore.

      If people are willing to pay $79.99 for aluminum strut caps to replace the oem plastic ones at $2.31 a piece ($4.62 for two), which is a 1731.39% price increase, I'm sure people would be willing to pay $100-150 for an aluminum hose flange instead of the oem plastic ones at $14.90 (671.14% - 1006.71% price increase). Not to mention the strut caps are merely a cosmetic upgrade and the coolant flanges not only prevent the need for replacing flanges every few years, but also remove the risk of being stranded by a failed plastic flange (which has happened to me 3 times with oem VW plastic flanges in the last 2 years).

      I understand the role of a business is to make money (contrary to what the current administration would have everyone believe the role of business is) but I'm sure we could drum up enough pre-paid sales to make this a worthwhile adventure. Not to mention, furthering your product line will gain additional customers who may order more from your existing product line when they are impressed with your products.

      Just my $.02

      ^^^Totally agree. I have almost all the Gruven parts available for the VR and never even blinked at the prices. I think you be surprised at how much I (and others) would pay for a billet VR thermostat housing.

      Please email me directly if you are interested in the ABA coolant flange. Paul@GruvenParts.com.

      The cost will likely be $150-$200 and we can offer both the manual and auto trans versions. We can build this part as is from 6061, or we can utilize AN/ORB fittings like we did on the 1.8T 4Y we make. Adding AN/ORB will also add cost, FYI. Probably +$50.

      We will need to set up pre-order page and take 10 pre-orders. If we can get to that point, yes we can certainly build this part. Please help us spread the word. I will start a new topic for it and we will keep track of the screen names and all details their. Help us spread the word, we would love to support the ABA crowd more, its a great engine and I know these coolant flanges are probably the weakest link in the whole cooling system.

      Fantastic! I have already posted on my local vw's group Facebook page to drum up interest. I am thinking the "as is" option would be the best because it keeps costs down but if there is enough interest in the AN/ORB fittings I say go for it.

      If the costs can be kept down around $150 I will take two .

      I didn't see the new topic thread for it yet. Please post a link in here or PM it to me so I can start sending it to friends

      VR6 Billet Aux Water Pump Bracket – All VR6

      This part replaces the useless rubber donut OEM P/N 035-959-209E (035959209E) that does a poor job supporting your PRICEY auxiliary water pump, and related PRICEY hoses. The OEM rubber donut allows the weight of the pump and hoses to sag, causing stress which can lead to pump and hose failure. Our billet version is the way VW should of designed it to begin with and locks the pump and hoses tight! On or off track, this part will secure the aux pump and prevent pump and hose failure.

      Replaces OEM P/N 035-959-209E (035959209E) common to the following vehicles -

      Corrado - all VR6
      Eos - 2007 + 3.2L VR6
      Eurovan - All VR6
      R32 - 2004
      Golf, Jetta, Jetta Wagon - 1993-2007 All VR6
      Passat - 1992-2005 - All VR6 and V8
      Phaeton - 2004-2007 6L V12
      Touareg - 2003 on 3.2L VR6

      Billet / Carbon Fiber / "VeeChain"

      Pay homage to the unique VR6 engine design with this accurate CNC keychain minature. Measuring about 2 inches in length by 1 inch width, its an instant conversation starter with the girls at the parties who are constantly wondering about your 15 degree cylinder offset. This is an Oichan original design (http://www.oichan.org) sold under his permission. Beware of the rip off versions out there which are made using water jet process and have ragged edges and poor quality. Ours are made on a 3 axis CNC 1 at a time and are literally perfect replications of the unique VR6 engine.

      Available in machine polished billet aluminum or genuine 3K weave carbon fiber plate.

      CNC Pressed MSD Coil Pack Brackets for MK3 and MK4 VR6 !

We all know how poorly the OEM Beru units hold up - so get serious about your VR6 ignition and step up to MSD! Leave the cheaply made, overpriced Beru coils for the competition!

      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 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)
      028-903-119F (028903119F) and 028-903-119AA (028903119AA)ABA alternator pulley

This part replaces OEM P/N 1J0-711-256 (1J0711256) common to most 02A cable shift MK3, MK4 Jettas, Golfs, TDI’s, Beetles, Passats, and Corrado VR6.

      Replaces OEM P/N 1J0-711-256 (1J0711256)


      Stainless FWD/AFT Steel Shift Cable Repair Block

      GruvenParts.com is proud to release these solid stainless fwd/aft cable and side/side cable shift repair blocks for cable shift VW vehicles. These parts will quickly replace the weak forward end of the factory fwd/aft and side/side shift cables P/N 1H0711265 (1HO-711-265) where it connects to the transmission linkage. There is no need to source an entire shift cable mechanism (which is very hard to find, and also quite pricey) in the event of a broken fwd/aft or side/side shift cable. And if your cables are not yet broken, throw 1 of each of these in the glove box and be prepared for the inevitable!

      These repair blocks repair the FWD/AFT and SIDE/SIDE cables P/N 1H0711265 (1HO-711-265) common to most 02A cable shift MK3, MK4 Jettas, Golfs, TDI’s, Beetles, Passats, and Corrado VR6. Please select the appropriate cable, as the blocks are different.

      Add some indestructible hardware to the factory cable shift mechanism where it needs it most! Buy these parts together and save!!

      GruvenParts.com builds bulletproof TIG welded Y Pipes to replace the OEM plastic in your VW coolant system!


      Billet Upper Radiator Hose Y Pipes

      PLEASE NOTE : This part is professionally TIG welded! There are no junk tapped threads into thin wall aluminum like the lesser versions offered by unscrupulous rip off artists. And its warranted for life!

      An absolute MUST HAVE for all MK3 VR6 owners and MK4 New Beetle owners. The upper radiator hose on these models is quite a pricey item from the dealer – usually about $100. The most documented cause of replacement on this hose is due to the plastic Y fitting which connects the 3 short hose pieces. The VW Y pipe cannot be bought separately, and is not suited for the high temperatures under the hood. Hell, its plastic – what did you expect?!

      Dont buy the OEM plastic part when you can buy this BILLET ALUMINUM TIG Welded replacement part for half the price!

      If you need a custom water temp sensor port welded on, please let us know. We are happy to perform customization on ANY of our products.

      Replaces the following OEM P/N :

      1H0-122-101E (1H0122101E) – MK3 Golf/Jetta VR6
      3A0-122-101E (3A0122101E) – VR6 Passat
      1C0-121-438A (1C0121438A) – New Beetle

      Ours is CNC'd from aerospace grade billet aluminum and sculpted to fit the contours of the MK3 Golf and Jetta engine bay perfectly.

      Available in CNC machined finish or chrome plated. Custom engraving options are available. Send us an image of your desired engraving and we will quote it - Paul@GruvenParts.com.

      Fits all 1993-1999 MK3 Golf and Jetta and replaces OEM P/N 1HM-121-343A (1HM121343A)

      Would be nice if there was a PCV pipe that was made out of aluminum that would replace the cheap plastic component that keeps breaking on ABA motors. those plastic pipes break and it sort of sucks having to keep replacing them when you want to maintain a stock setup. I guess you can compare this part to the Crackpipe of the VR6 since this part seems to crack and spew oil all over the engine if not taken care of right away. Has gruvenparts looked into a part like that?

I guess you can compare this part to the Crackpipe of the VR6 since this part seems to crack and spew oil all over the engine if not taken care of right away. Has gruvenparts looked into a part like that?
      Not that I know of, I will send the request into Paul and see what he thinks about reproducing the part

      Billet VW/Audi VR6/V6/V8 Oil Filter Housings !

      Precision Machined Aluminum Oil Filter Housings For VW And Audi VR6/V6/V8 Engines !

      This one was worth the wait, folks! Never, but NEVER break a flimsy plastic oil filter housing again. Or deal with the unsightly leaks created by the cheaply made (yet expensive) plastic OEM housing cracking and deflecting. We made this one the way VW and Audi should have – from A SOLID BLOCK OF ALUMINUM, by God!

      First, we start with a massive chunk of Aircraft Grade 6061-T6511 Aluminum. The section is delicately placed on one of our special CNC machining centers and precision cut to EXACTLY match the OEM plastic housing. The metal gods (well, in this case, one of our highly talented CNC programmers) has programmed elaborate steps for the very time consuming and expensive operation of profiling the special buttress threads into the housing using the exact DIN spec thread cutting tool required for a perfect seal. It simply doesn’t get better than this!

      We also provide a proper threaded drain plug of the same size as your oil pan plug (use just 1 19mm socket for both!). Rather than some useless internal soft hex plug which easily strips, ours is a genuine Audi plug made from steel with an honest 19mm external hex. The plug comes with a contained sealing washer as well. And yes, we also provide USEABLE 36mm hex flats so you can easily remove the housing with a standard 36mm socket. Imagine that : You can simply drain the housing using its proper drain plug bolt that wont round off, and remove the housing using a proper 36mm socket that also wont round off. This could possibly make changing your oil fun again!

      This product is intended to replace VW/Audi Part Numbers 021-115-433A (021115433A) and 021-115-433B (021115433B) housings. Please check the OEM part number of your oil filter housing before ordering. You can do this easily by calling your dealer and giving them your VIN #. It will fit the following vehicles :

      VW Corrado (1992-1995 w/AAA VR6 engine)
      VW Golf and Jetta/Wagon (1993-2006 w/AAA and AFP VR6 engines)
      VW Passat (1992-1997 w/AAA VR6 engine)
      VW Touareg (2003-2007 w/3.2 and 3.6 V6 engines)
      VW Eurovan (1996-2004 w/AES V6 engine)

      Audi A8/S8 (2000-2003 w/4.2L AUX V8 engine)
      Audi Q7 (2007-2009 w/3.6L BHK V6 engine)

      Special Note At The End :

      Use oil filter part number 021-115-562 (021115562) or equivalent with our metal housing. If your parts department requires a vehicle type, tell them “1995 VW Golf GTI VR6”. This is the older, vastly superior cartridge filter with the metal end caps. VW, in their infinite cost savings wisdom, superseded it with a cheaper, cardboard end filter (021-115-562A). Please make sure to order filter 021-115-562 oil filter (or equivalent) as it is the superior filter for these engines, and will fit correctly with this housing. You can buy it from us using the drop down menu on the product page, or at any dealer or trusted auto parts store.
