|12V and 24V VR6 Coolant Pipes aka Crack Pipes
If you dont want to do ever have to do this job again, buy the LIFETIME WARRANTED GruvenParts.com billet Crack Pipe !
GruvenParts.com was the 1st vendor to build this part and it’s what started us off! If you have a billet crack pipe installed on your VR6, more than likely its one of ours. We machine our pipe to EXACTLY match the OEM part shape so there is NEVER a fitment issue. Be careful when considering lesser billet pipes that do not match the exact shape of the OEM pipe. The fitment of this part is tricky and the shape MUST BE IDENTICAL to the OEM part to ensure correct alignment between the water pump and thermo housing.
Our pipe is machined from super light and super strong 6061-T651 aluminum with TIG welded full threaded bungs on both the oil cooler feed nipple and the drain plug (no tapped thin wall regions!). You can remove the oil cooler feed nipple and plug it with a ¼ NPT plug if you want to ditch the problematic OEM factory oil cooler and install a more serious air/oil cooler. Likewise, you can also install a temp sender in the plug location, or opt for our special chrome plated drain valve to make coolant flushes quick and easy.
We have owned, operated, and tracked VR6’s for a long time and have considered many features when designing this part. You do not want to have to do this job more than once, and you surely do not want the flimsy plastic version to leave you stranded (or worse : turn your high strung VR6 into an overheated paperweight). Do this job once the right way and you’ll never need to worry about a pipe failure again.
