    Matty's Golf mk4 R32 Turbo 4 motion

    New track rods More powdercoating New driveshafts from VW Nice to see it all coming together At this point I just wanted to get the car back together and running. So it was a quick clean of the brake calipers and back on. I will probably get these refurbished next winter. Mount made for my Talon switch panel. Total newb at fabrication if you can call it that but good fun anyway. 400bhp NX Express wet kit just in case [emoji23] Car loaded up and on the way to the dyno Car made 555bhp on wastegate springs which is enough to run it in and zero modifications to the standard DRP gearbox. My Dad loves the wood but I think it has to go [emoji85] After lots of thought SQS or DonOctane [emoji848] decided to go for something purpose made and best of all UK made. Time to come apart again Lots and lots of Fing and blinding late the gearbox was out with the engine and transfer box still in position. Entirely possible but definitely yanking the engine next time. New guest has settled in nicely Turbo to charge cooler pipe powder coated after a few little tweaks Had a few issues on the dyno with pipes blowing off and overheating due to air locks so re-introduced an expansion bottle back in the system. Found a local guy to paint the car so decided on House of Kolor ‘Jet set back’ and lots of clear and colour sanding. Seen it on the tv a bunch so fancy myself a nice paint job. On area I’ve never paid a lot of attention to.

    For sale are the seats and door cards from my VR6. Selling them as I have replaced them with leather. The car has done approx. 95k miles and the seats are in good condition. The driver's seat outer bolster is broken down slightly but the cloth is in tact and it's not too bad. The OSR door card has a split by the door handle as shown in the photos, this is hardly noticeable once fitted and door handle in place. As you can see on the front door cards there is one clip housing missing on each, I don't have a spare but if you could get hold of one it could be glued back in place, however they didn't cause me any issues when they were fitted. Collection only and I'm in Coventry. I'd like to sell the whole lot together and looking for £60. Rich

    Engine: VR6-DOHC vs VR6-2.8

    I just bought a 1998 mk3 vr6, which is in great condition and has only done 35k miles. But I was wondering why the engine has VR6-2.8 written on it, when so many others I have seen on the web, seem to have VR6-DOHC. Can someone kindly let me know the difference. Have I bought a dud? Many thanks Here is a pic..

    To be fair its in in remarkably good shape given the age. Plan is just to make it a very good standard example, currently having the rear arches replaced as a bit scabby and a full respray. Screen out as well due to leaking and a bit of rust. Overall though it's got minimal rust and has only had two owners from new. Debating mk3 anniversary rims but haven't decided as yet....

    I’m back

    Hello all Well I’m back, after a few years away from a VR6 (had to drive a Saxo, was a VTR so not all bad but still not a dub ha ha) I’ve gone a brought a R32, it’s a 2003 with 93k and full history, only a few mods 3sdm’s 18x8.5 in the front and 18x9.5 on the rear, AP coilovers and Scorpion exhaust rear section only. The wheels needs a clean up along with a couple of other things I’ll get sorted bit by bit. No really plans to do to much to it at the moment but we all know how easily that can change he he, buzzing to be back in a Golf

    Oil burner

    That last comment makes me laugh, engine rebuild was quick and not as painful as I originally thought, but that turbo build is still not finished lol. Altho I may hear it run for the first time since I pulled the engine out all those years ago tomorrow last piece of the puzzle is my new fuel pump which arrived today... Lets hope she doesn't smoke like she did 3 years ago!

    Golf mk3 vr6 highline

    Hi. Welcome to the sale of my golf vr6 highline in black (black magic) the reason for sale is that we are in the middle of moving house and it came far quicker than we thought so i need to free up some cash and it was either the vr6 or the scooby that had to give way, and with me being a jap kind of guy the scooby had to stay Saying that the golf is a lovely car and i enjoy driving both for their own reasons. Anyway here is a list of what the golf has had done while ive had it. Last week it had 2 brand new wishbones/balljoints and track rod ends with uprated bushes. I had a full service about 6 weeks ago and had a brand new sump pan fitted at the same time New coilpack, again about 6 weeks ago Gearbox oil change around 3 weeks ago New coolant sensor and crank sensor recently Coilovers have done less than 200miles Its also has 10mm thicker ht leads and an air filter but im not sure on the name. Just before christmas it had a full blowover/respray and had 2 new sills professionally fitted so they are soild again, and also had the wheels refurbished and brand new quad headlights fitted at the same time. The seats in there i got them from a member of the forum and they came out of a car that had done less than 50k so they are in very good condition!. Everything works as it should, electrics, mirrors, windows etc and the abs light comes on and goes off straight away like it should! The car drives faultless with no noises, chain rattle or any leaks as it should! The guy i bought the car off didnt have any service history with it but as he was a well known member on the corrado vr6 forums and he had his fair share of vr6s i had no issue with it as he was also an enthusiast, but i have all the reciepts for the work above that i have had done! When i bought the car he said it had a 6 branch manifold on there and a serbring exhaust, it is pretty quiet but gives that lovely vr6 tune when its higher in the revs! The car has done 118k and was previously an auto but has been professionally converted to a manual The car will also come with a short shifter with new bushes so the gear changes will be short and precise. Overall the car is in excellent condition unlike alot for sale that claim to be! It does have a couple of things that could do with sorting Its only got 1 key and the alarm doesnt work! Never bothered me as i use a disklock There is a rip in the steering wheel 1 crack in one of the lower indicators No CD player. So really they are nothing at all and if they were fixed you wouldnt notice anyway hemce why i havent bothered, the car gets looks everywhere it goes and the amount of times ive been asked to sell it to them while filling up at the petrol station is crazy lol. Im asking for £2500 OVNO as there are a few out there that are no were near this and are more...it is priced to sell but im not desperate at all. Thanks for looking! My number is 07758243030 if you want to get in contact with me. Thanks for looking ashley, Car located in the bolton/wigan area

    Yes. VW produced a 4-Wheel-Drive version of the Golf Mk3 VR6 called the "Golf VR6 Syncro". It used a viscous coupling system similar (but not identical) to that in the Golf Mk2 Rallye. The system transmits all engine power to the front wheels normally, but if front wheel slip is detected, up to 40% of the engine's power is redirected to the rear wheels until traction is restored. Not only did the Syncro get 4WD, it also got the 2.9 litre, 190BHP VR6 engine from the Corrado. This helped to offset the additional power lost through the 4WD system. The straight-line performance of the VR6 Syncro is very similar to that of the normal FWD Golf VR6. Off-the line traction and cornering ability (especially in the wet) is greatly improved, though! Unfortunately, the Golf VR6 Syncro was only ever sold in Mainland Europe, and all examples are left-hand-drive. A number of Syncros have been imported into the UK by enthusiasts, however, and they do come up on the second-hand market from time to time. They are EXTREMELY rare in the UK, though. If you want one, the best place to look is in German second-hand car classifieds and German eBay. When searching, note the European spelling of "syncro" (not the English spelling, "synchro")
