    Vr6 conrod stretch bolts

    Hi fellow corrado peeps,

    Im looking for new conrod bolts for my bottom end rebuild 077105425b. Tried VW who want £225 plus vat for them! Hell fire there some expensive bolts. Any suggestions where I could purchase oem or uprated ones if cheaper?

    Thanks

    Try and find out who were the original manufacturer that VW sourced them from.

    Might of been these guys ?

    What about contacting a Ford Main Dealer and see what price they are from them,
    as I think they used the 2.8 VR6 in the late 1990s Ford Galaxy.
    They could be the same price or possibly slightly cheaper ?

    Si
    Had MK2 1.8 Scirocco Scarla 1998 to 2002
    had it lowered on original wheels,
    K&N air fitler and Janspeed exhaust system.


    Now have 94 M reg Corrado 2.0 16v since 2002 still got it,
    been off the road now since early 2015
    hoping to get it finished this year.

    Also have a 2015 Seat Ibiza TSI i-tech as my daily driver.

    Almost 100% sure it was Glyco OEM as I remember going through all this when I built my bottom end - mine has Glyco bearings and bolts, all from Germany.
