VR6CABBS reacted to ASHP89 in Whats it worth?
Hi. Im just wanting a rough guideling as to what my golf vr6 is worth? Putting it up for sale in the next couple of days when its had a detail.
Its a golf mk3 vr6 higline in black (black magic)
Its done 118k miles
Its just undergone alot of work consisting of a full blow over/respray and new sills being professionally fitted in at no expense spared.
New quad headlights
Wheel just been refurbished (porsche D90s)
New coilovers that have done less than 200miles.
Its got a 6 branch manifold
Serbring catback exhaust
Unknown air filter
10mm thicker HT leads
Yesterday it had new wishbones, ball joints and track rod ends fitted with uprated febi bushes
It also as had in the past 2-3 weeks
New coolant sensor
New crank sensor
And a fresh gearbox oil change
All this is what i have had done and have receipts for the work!
The car also has a set of seats in (highline) from another highline that had only done 40k so the front seats are in very good condition.
Its got a few niggles (not many) which are.
The steering wheel has a tear on it
There is only 1 key
The alarm doesnt work
And the headlining has been done in suede (not the best of jobs) but looks alright.
And the service history is vague like alot of the vr6s but i have all the receipts carried out for all the work i have had done.
I bought this car off a previous enthusiast who has had many corrados and golfs so i wasnt too concerned about history as i know it was looked after.
The car was previously an auto but has been professionally converted to a manual.
The car runs great! No noises, no leaks from anywhere and no chain rattle.
Reason for sale is it was either sell the golf or sell the scooby! The scooby won as im mkre of a jap kind of guy, but the vr6 is a very lovely capeable car and im sad to be selling it!

Cheers luke
VR6CABBS reacted to RBPE in Big Dub
Ian Birch built it didn't he when he used to own Dubsport? I grew up with Dubsport on one side and Awesome GTI on the other, used to see al their creations all the time, good inspiration when you got sick of projects!
Last I heard about it was by a photographer who took some pics of it about 2 years ago.
VR6CABBS reacted to Luke Jones in POST A SINGLE PIC OF YOUR CAR
Also work was carried out by midlands vw they have virtually brought my car back to life ..so anyone in the midlands go check em, and sorry for not introducing myself properly .. been a lurker since I got hold of my highline last year and this site has been a life saver ..anyway im luke and from the Midlands UK and absolutely love my first vr6..
VR6CABBS reacted to RBPE in turbo thoughts - am i right?
It's not really that to be honest - if you get dodgy injectors you could have fitment problems... fuel leak + hot engine = big expense! Linearisation problems over time means more tuning = more expense, one runs lean etc. You get a cheap wastegate and it put's too much boost through your set up and runs lean due to lack of fuel = big expense. Cheap turbo material spinning at tens of thousands of revs snaps off it's wheel and goes through your engine = big expense - that's the reasons people do it properly from the start really!
If you're operating on a budget, then don't do too much on your engine first of all as I would be thinking it may be destroyed at any time, so nothing more than a spacer really or I'd usually plan for near a grand for a good refresh and strengthening of the engine. Injectors I wouldn't ever really skimp on to be honest, 2nd hand genuine from reputable seller at worst really, one of them leans out! - and wastegate's are for hot gasses so I would be wise there too as it could have a chain effect in destroying parts.
You want to use a proper MAF as well as the cheap ones play up.
I'd personally opt for a Holset HX35 12cm remanufactured for about £450, 38mm Turbosmart wastegate for £250 ish (or 2nd hand ones knock about from time to time) same for a 34mm Kompact recirc is a decent price at £120 ish and bigger than the 25mm ones, together with, (at least) genuine 2nd hand Bosch MAF and injectors (depending on your tuners parts used).
So about a grand for that quality base to build around, then the misc items you mentioned - so £2k budget yet quality kit is easily achievable imo, then the big expense as you up the boost is engine and drive-train!
VR6CABBS got a reaction from VR6 Supercharged in VR6 into mk2 scirocco queries
Theres a few routes you can go with regards to gearbox but for strength and reliability and based on the fact you mentioned turbo in a previous thread have you looked at a DRP box from an early mk4 4motion? Epytec are a really good company for mountings and you will find lots of goodies at bar-tek.
VR6CABBS reacted to shrek777 in Hi from Czech Republic
SOoo...A few has changed over the winter...
Car is r8 now broken into pieces... engine out, whole rebuilt, engine bay cleaned...
Engine: head work + Schimmel 263 cams, lightweight pulleys, new engine mounts, refurbished manifold + cover, new gaskets, new chains, new piston rings, new ignition unit, new hoses, cooler, resealed AC, painted block + cleaned trans, new clutch kit, refurbished flywheel, refurbished starter, refurbished alternator...and maybe something more
+ BBS R17 from Polo Cross, tuned muffler, painted fenders + bonnet....
Lastly, but most importantly I managed to acquire an Oettinger manifold (schrick without logo) with complete setup and ECU from VW Sharan 2.8 VR6...for a dime
Thinking about restoring it and putting it on my engine later this season...
Here are some pics from works which are still underway...expecting it to be running mid April...

With the ever rising success of this show, I've booked a club stand for the full weekend for the club.
They will only allow us 10 cars so even though its a while away i'm taking names for a place on our club stand.
To avoid disappointment get your name down early. This is a show not to be missed. Many a member will vouch for this.
You will not be committed to both the Saturday and Sunday but those who are arriving on the Friday will take priority.
Let me know your thoughts and if you can commit then i'll list you for a place.
The good old Mr Bradley @Dave_ciw will be there with us but only camping this year as his car is having a revamp. Still he is always in good spirit and will no doubt be falling over everyone's tent when slightly intoxicated. haha.

VR6CABBS reacted to al_mooring in Al's mk3 vr6 turbo build
recently I received my front brakes so fitted them and had a test fit of the wheels on the front, its going to be wide but with air ride and a pull of the arches we should be good!
I then started fitting the Stack water temp, oil temp and pressure gauges along with the Kcarbon interior pieces and finalized the rear brake bias valve
