  7. VW's new 496bhp 3.0-litre VR6 engine

    VW's new 496bhp 3.0-litre VR6 engine New 3.0-litre twin-turbo VR6 revealed in a series of technical illustrations Cutaway shots of the Volkswagen Golf GTI Design Vision GTI concept have revealed that it appears to use a new VR6 engine, as opposed to the previously rumored V6. Volkswagen has not confirmed whether the engine is indeed a VR6 but, judging by the configuration of the intake and exhaust systems, it seems likely to be the case. The new six-cylinder engine, which has a single cylinder head and a claimed 15-degree angle between its rows of cylinders, is said to displace 3.0 litres. Thanks to direct fuel injection and twin turbochargers, its output is stated to be a substantial 496bhp and 413lb ft. It's reputedly set to see service in future models, which may include high-performance versions of the Volkswagen CC and the recently unveiled Cross Blue coupé — although the engine will most likely be detuned for economy, emissions and drivability reasons. A senior Porsche engineer confirmed that the new Volkswagen engine was a narrow-angle VR6, but that it wasn't in any way related to new engines being developed for the Porsche Macan. It's not yet known whether the new unit is a development of an existing VR6 or an all-new engine, or if it will be available in UK models, but it is thought that its smaller capacity - compared to recent VR6 units - is a result of a Chinese-market specific tax break. Volkswagen has a long history of popular VR6 engines; the first were developed in the late 1980s and introduced in 1991 in the Corrado and Passat. Later, the engine made its way into the Golf. The new Golf Design Vision concept, which is equipped with a transversely mounted 496bhp version of the new VR6, is capable of accelerating from 0-62mph in a super-car-rivaling 3.9sec. Its top speed is 190mph.

    I bought this car last year in with the intention of super charging it, due to other commitments and work I no longer have the time for it. The car is in use every weekend so milage may increase a little. It was originally an Auto and was converted professionally by the previous owner. Gear box is smooth and is perfect no issues what so ever. The gearbox was removed from a donor vehicle that covered 100k miles. Auxiliary belt has been changed old one is in the boot. In the process of having the manual conversion the clutch was also replaced with a brand new one. I have no proof of this as I was told by the previous owner. I have no reason to doubt his claim as everything else was how he described. Engine is superb no leaks or rattles, I drove this back over 300 miles when I purchased it and I enjoyed every minute of it. Currently it has covered approximately 117,750 miles, No sign of chain rattle or wobbly pulleys, they seem fine. The car stands quite at idle, even at speed unless you hit the throttle which brings out the amazing VR6 grunt. I have pictures of work being carried out for anyone to view. *Exterior Bodywork for the age is outstanding in my opinion, no rust under arches or in any other common rust spots, only bit of rust noted is on the roof where the windscreen meets the body. Its about the size of a 10p coin. Underneath is the same very clean for the age of the car, as you know the sills are a weak point on these, will probably need attention in the near future. I had it undersealed not so long ago. Small surface scratches here and there and a few stone chips on the bonnet, I put this down to wear and tear. Wheels are near mint condition slight curbing on the rears on inner lip (I have stretched tyres) genuine 16" staggered Porsche D90's in gunmetal grey with fantastic tyre thread all round (almost like new) 6J at front 8J at rear. They have been fitted using 20MM FK hub centric adaptors. *Interior Headlining restored in black velvet leaving some areas as highlights (see pics) looks lovely and it really sets this car apart from others. A polished show cage is fitted, if not to your taste it is easily removed. The front seats have been replaced with genuine MK4 Recaro's they look stunning and really keep you in the seat when driving and taking corners. These will still need a little adjusting if I have to be honest, they work as they should. The heating element for these can be retrofitted, switches are still present. Currently not connected. *Fresh 12 months MOT (June 2017) *Stainless steel 6 branch exhaust manifold *Polished Corrado 2.9 inlet manifold (better air intake) *PCV valve deleted *Air Con deleted *Rear wiper deleted *R-power induction kit (cone style) *Upgraded 10MM HT leads *MK4 full leather Recaro seats *MK4 gear knob (wood style) *High flow sports cat *Sebring exhaust (centre & rear) *Genuine Moretti quad headlights with 8K HID's *Adjustable coil-overs (all round) *Original spark plug remover on bonnet catch *Aero wiper upgrade *Power windows/Tilt & slide E.Sunroof/E.Side mirrors *New Crank sensor fitted 16/06/2016 *6 previous owners *Bad bits Front driver side headlight is cracked. Glass can be purchased online via Ebay etc. Part service history + VOSA MOT printouts. This can be verified online by anyone. A Few bits need attention as mentioned which are not very concerning or expensive to fix. Very reluctant sale as I put in a lot of my time and money in getting it near mint, I'm not desperate to sell so wont be letting it go for peanuts so please no haggling, I have been very honest in describing the vehicle there maybe things I have forgotten therefore I will update as soon as possible. I did a complete HPI when purchasing and it was all clear. But please do your own checks for peace of mind. *Extras I have quite a few new and used bits and pieces that Im happy to give with the car, these will be added at NO EXTRA cost if my asking price is met. PICTURES & VIDEOS available on request. (WhatsApp messenger) NO test drives without proof of fully comp insurance and driving license. NO swaps/Px, straight sale only. Viewings can be arranged in advance. Advertised elsewhere. Cash offers welcome.
  9. We purchased this car in December 2014 and it sat in a garage until early this year where it was prepped ready to show over in Belfast last week at Dubshed 16. The car itself is a basic model sporting a 1600cc powerhouse with 22k miles from new. It was in very good original condition but we decided to change a few parts!!! The previous keeper also a member on here brought the car back to life then looked after it until we got it. So here it is....... It came with a lot of history that I'll not bore you with!?! It was a real tidy original car so only needed a few tweaks.......... AP Coilovers...... Recaro Colour Concept seats....... BBS RS 001's....... So with all the bits n bobs purchased just had to set about them, I polished the wheels up and Del at Optimus trimmed the seats. We managed to source the original materials from Germany to match! BBS RS 001's..... Recaros....... Things were coming together so it was off to Gerry at Performancetec to fit suspension do alignment and fit the wheels...... Next it was time to remove the ghastly coach lines someone had fitted, unfortunately they were hiding a small area that had been painted on the rear door!!!! So that was the car all ready it just needed a final lick from Craig Steel at Anonymous detailing, here is how it looked finished!!!!..... So it was all ready for showing at Dubshed 16! We got a great spot on the GTINI stand right in front of the main stage........ It picked up a wee win too, BEST MK1/MK2......... So that's it done and dusted, back in the garage. Probably going to sell it on and let someone else enjoy it for what it is!

  12. Hi to everybody, followed VR6OC from year, but now i decides to introduce myself: Name: Jaime (Like JImmy or James) Luna Occupation: IT Tech Country: Mexico Cars: Tornado Red Mk3 VR6 + Beige (dont know the oem color name ) Mk1 Caddy Vr6 ( My dad is the owner) still in process. We've owned few Vr6's nothing so cool, just Vr6's all of them already sold : 1 Black 98 mk3 vr6 jetta 1 Brown Mk1 caddy Vr6 1 passat 35i (B4) vr6 1 Black 95 mk3 Vr6 Jetta Well Few pictures from my Facebook albums: and the jetta still in process, almost beggining with the bodywork by myself Regards!!
  13. So I am about to put a after market head unit in my jetta and i know i have to have the wiring harness from metra but is there anything else i need?
  14. So my 98 Jetta glx has recently started doing this thing where the rpms do not drop to 800 when you push in the clutch like it is supposed to. The rpm will eventually go down if you are stop long enough but if not then you can just let off the clutch and the car will go because the rpms are still up. I was told this was because of a vaccum leak but i would like to hear other wise first.
  15. Just bought these alloys on eBay and waiting for them to be delivered. I want to buy tyres on line too so they got here at the same time. Not sure what tyres are needed though. Anyone know what tyre size these need? I've read on line that standard 6.5x16 are 205/55/16. Is this correct? Thanks in advance A pic:
