NEW VR6 OWNER, NEED ADVICE.

Recommended Posts

I'm new to the VR6 world. Been looking at mods. Induction kits, lowering springs, new wheels, body mods.

 

Any advice is appreciated.

 

Are there any big NO NO's in the VR6 world?

 

 

And are induction kits really affected by engine heat???

I have a panel filter with a drilles airbox as it is. Just fancied a K&N Typhoon. Only because it looks awesome and it comes in red to go with my red silicone coolant hose kit. Lol. Exhaust is coming.

from your avatar it looks like you have a 4mo buddy, if you do, upgrade your ARB's to R32 ones (or aftermarket if you prefer) poly bush it up with a good set of coilovers, this will make the handling a whole bunch better :)

 

If you can manage to find one, get your hands on a blue haldex controller.

 

Like has been said, exhaust, decat (or gutted cat replacement) I have a cone filter, it gives no gains (or at least l don’t think so) but l like the sound lol

 

 

 

Other then that, cams, lightend flywheel, light weight pullies. There is also a guild on here to short shift 4mo’s (l think Bungy wrote it) and then you would be looking at FI after that

 

 

and on the NO NO's side, it is a little hard to say as everyone has different tastes, however if your car ends up on the your favorite golf thread here  (http://www.vr6oc.com/forum/topic/44947-your-favorite-golf/#entry424932) you have prob gone from the path of good taste haha :P

Now this is my kind of advice. Exactly what I was after. It is a 4Motion. Are the R32 ARB's cheaper than uprated 4mo ones? Im all about cheap lol.

Any links to parts will help.

And there is NO WAY my car will end up on that link!!!!

Eibach do an uprated kit with polybushes for the 4motion for about £350. Think this'll be a similar thing? Or would you stick with the R32 ones?

 

Im sure it would do the job buddy, l just went for the R32's cos that is what l was looking for, it was OEM and l didnt have to think about the size spit between front and back and having been in a R32 l sort of knew what l was getting in terms of performance and with the others l didnt :)

 

But l dont think you would be any worse off for going the Eibach route.
