As promised, I had a look at fitting the Audi 3.2 sump on the VR.
I've heard of people fitting the R32 sump, but that's pointless, as the mk4 R32 sump is the same as the 4motion one, and literally just an alloy version of the VR6 one.
The audi 3.2 one however (and the mk5 R32 I guess, don't know for sure) is shallower, and baffled from the factory.
Here goes.
Firstly, bear in mind this is a damaged sump. The plank who removed the engine from the A3 just dropped it, and smashed the sump to bits...cheers for that...
Here's the plastic baffle. well, half of it, the other bit was smashed off. It's normally bolted in.

sat next to the VR sump





Early VR6 rubber gasket laid over it just to show the bolt pattern is identical.

You don't actually need a gasket as it's a machined surface, so just use a sealant.
VR depth on the back corner

compared to the 3.2 sump (allow an extra 5mm as this one is flattened)

and at the plug


I offered it up to the engine, but as I feared, the vr6 oil pump is too long, so you need the 3.2 one (which is the same, but has a shorter pickup.




note how the capacity is retained with this section at the back



part numbers and prices to follow.

Re: The 3.2 sump on a VR6 thread (phatvr6)

Nice work !
FWIW, the Bentley manual shows the MK V R32 oil pan assembly with baffle looking, as far as I can tell, the same as the Audi 3.2 oil pan. The Bentley isn't very clear but it looks the same.

This would be awesome if it bolted up... no more oil starvation on the skid pad.

Re: The 3.2 sump on a VR6 thread (subrosasix)

read the thread doofus
it's shallower, and baffled.
and when bolted up is sits higher than the subframe.
if you're catching your subframe you have issue....

Re: The 3.2 sump on a VR6 thread (VR6225)

that is awesome. my only concern is if the 3.2l pickup will in fact work and bolt right up to our motors? Part#'s coming i assume?

The pump drive rod is the same number as 12/24V
