VR6 Performance Ignition Coil Pack Set Up ‘in house’ coils Like MSD Coil Pack

VR6 MSD Type In House Ignition Coil Pack Demo Setup with OEM Coil Pack Shroud For Illustration

VR6 ‘In House’ Coil Packs

VR6 Performance Ignition Coil Pack Set Up ‘in house’ coils Like MSD Coil Pack.

So here we have set up our ‘in house’ VR6 coil pack, very similar to the MSD coils we also have but the ‘in house’ coils are an unbranded version, originating from the USA from our same supplier of MSD, a slight cost saving but also with the black stealth look which is what we decided on.

To install we just need to retain the base and shroud. The shroud on this coil pack has been ‘chromed’ in the past, still in good condition but even better after a quick polish! To start the original coil pack was dismantled only to find some of the circuit needed was burnt out, so we found another coil pack and dismantled that!

Taking the base and the outer shroud, the rest of the oem coil pack was put to one side,  the chromed shroud sandwiched between the custom made bracket and the coil pack base with connector, the coil pack base connector was then attached to the new in house coils using the supplied kit.

Ready to bolt on, here comes a stronger bang supplied from the coils and the future ability to swap out failed coils should they fail!

Milltek Sport GT100 Polished Tips Fitted to Golf MK4 R32 with Milltek Sport Cat Back Non Resonated

GT100 Polished Tips

The R32 with Milltek Sport Exhaust GT100 Tips, we are often asked how the cut is/looks, the GT100 tip follows the bumper almost right with it’s angle cut/slash, it is not cut straight like some may think.  While this R32 was on the ramp, we thought we’d grab a quick picture. System fitted several years ago now and although the underside is muddy and some corrosion on the clamps, the sound is unreal and the tips are nice and shiny.

While we are here and if you’re wondering about new tips, Milltek Sport Exhaust Tips will only fit with the vehicle specific Milltek Sport exhaust system that they are made for, something we often have to refuse customers over. They won’t fit oem so get a Milltek! or risk cutting and welding and faffing about.  So yes being it already had a Milltek, it would be a straight forward job, for this R32 the tips are still great. The pur, oh you got to love it the sound of the R32 with the Milltek Sport Non Resonated system!



We won’t waffle here as the detail is very well documented on the product pages, read more on the link  https://vwpartsinternational.com/omega-search/?q=Milltek+tips&post_type=page#q=Milltek+tips&post_type=page

The Daily Race Car

What Lies Beneath


Robin got in touch with a cool looking white, 4-door, big bumper MK2, and what a MK2 it is.

From the outside, Robins MK2 has a seemingly understated OEM look to it, but if you’re at a 1/4 mile track day and this comes up next to you, there’s a good chance you’re just going to see the back of it for this run… the only giveaway for the eagle-eyed amongst its victims, is the badge that sits in the front grille…

Robin explains how he came to have this car, and gives us a rundown of this daily driven racer.

“I’ve owned the car for 11yrs.

It started life as a 2E 2L 8v digifant motor, eventually converted to a modern EFI making 91kw and 164nm.

These were produced in South Africa in 1992 under the VWSA motorsports banner, as a “test” vehicle for the mk3 gti as we never received a 16v mk3 gti, but one with a 2.0 8v.

The car is used as a true daily driver. Long road trips are part of its life. I drag race it and as a 1.8T 20v, it’s been down the strip over 320 times over 3 years. It’s seen a couple track days.

Plans to go big turbo are in the works, but not as quickly as I’d like.
The car is built on the foundation that if it can’t be a daily, I won’t build it.”

We love this dedication to keeping this as a useable, reliable car, but with the power to surprise a lot of newer cars.

We are loving how clean of an install this is, its almost as if it was there from factory.


Robin explains the spec here…

1.8T 20v AGU
K03
AJH intake
63mm downpipe and exhaust.
Custom intercooler and stainless steel piping.
GFB decepter pro 2 electronic bov
GFB G-force 2 electronic boost controller.
Powermods management with flat foot shifting and 2-step launch control.
Poly engine mounts

BC Racing BR edition coilovers.
16″ volk racing G25 lightweight 7J with 195/45 Nankang NS2 tyres.
14″ stock “rib cage” wheels are used in winter on Yokohama s-drive 185/55 tyres.

The car made 140kw 321nm at the wheels. With more work in the pipeline, we are going to keep in touch with Robin, as this build can only get better, and quicker.

We love how this MK2 has been built to be a true sleeper, easily mistaken for something it’s not, until it passes you, well done Robin, can’t wait to see where this goes.

Alejandro’s Perfect MK3 from Mexico

Surf Green Perfection


So, we came across this absolute stunner by chance I suppose, Alejandro got in touch when we had some of the very last original stock of some cool green interior handbrake levers for the MK3. We were sent a picture of the car he was buying for, and we knew instantly that we needed more info on this beautiful green machine.



Alejandro sent us some amazing pictures and a spec list that any car guy would love, and it’s all packed into this Surf Green 90’s hatch.

The interior & exterior mods include:

  • Surf green metallic paint
  • European spec bumpers & tailgate
  • Heckblende
  • Rear golf emblem XX Edition Yahre
  • ABT skirts
  • BBS LM 17×7.5 & 8.5
  • Tires 165/40/17, 195/40/17 rear
  • Airlift Performance V2 air ride
  • Austrian auto DJ headlights and original Hella Smoke and Reflective fog light kit
  • Neuspeed Upper front and rear stabilizer bars.
  • GTi green Recaro seats & door cards
  • Green colour concept steering wheel
  • Green colour concept handbrake
  • Votex Pedals
  • 3.6 FSI engine
  • 312mm Cupra Discs.
  • Clutch Copper and fiber, Steering wheel and New Transmission.
  • Borla exhaust


The mods don’t stop there, Alejandro has also built quite a decent audio system in the R36 too, too make it sound as good as it looked.

Audio

  • Audiofrog GB15 Tweeters
  • Audiofrog GB60 Woofers
  • Audiofrog GB615C Xovers
  • In the back, we use a pair of coaxial Audiofrog GS62
  • Subwoofers Audiofrog GS10D2, a pair.
  • Audison AV Voce Quattro 800 watts for media
  • Audison AV Voce Quattro 1200 watts for subwoofers
  • The wiring came from SUONO, 100% copper, as well as the accessories.
  • The acoustic treatment on front doors and rear panels ran a load of Soundskins and ADS.
  • We also use Soundskins rings.
  • Signal quality and processing provided by a Pioneer DEX.P99RS, one of my preferred units for this type of projects where performance is a priority.


The interior is classic MK3, some subtle touches include the colour concept steering wheel and gear knob with green stitch, spy the Fischer cd holder and the perfect placement of the V2 controller.

The front of this MK3 just looks so clean, the smoked headlights and fogs work so well with the Surf Green, and you can just see that 3.6 FSI, the only clue to what lies beneath is the OEM R36 badge sitting in the 2-slat GTI grille.


Its no secret that we love a MK3 here at VWPI, we stock 1000s of MK3 parts, so we love the fact that our customers want to take the time to share their cars with us, especially when they are over 5,000 miles away!

Thanks for sharing Alejandro, and keep up the amazing work with the MK3.
