Re: VR6 OIL COOLER?? (aKaBigMike)

I think matrix engineering makes a kit, and I know autotech makes a kit, but I have yet to see how the sandwhich plate connects, so if you find anything, let me know.. Im interested as well but I want to know how they connect first

on the VR6 the factory oil exchanger is separate from the oil filter housing, so instead of putting the sandwhich plate between the block/oil exchanger/filter (if you keep the exchanger) it goes between the block/oil exchanger/end cap

jeremy, could you send me some info on the oil cooler kits you guys have? I tried to access it through your website but the page for it wouldn't load. The kits and prices you have for a VR jetta is what I'm looking for. Thanks

i have the matrix kit on my 3.1 l and the first day we started the car up i got stuck in interstate traffic when it was 100 degrees outside, the highest the oil temp got up to was 118. cooler than my 2.8 was on a regualr fall/sprinish day. install was easy beans-i highly reccommend it.
