VW Engine Tin is crucial to ensuring your VW engine runs cool. The tin directs air from the top portion of the engine compartment through the oil cooler, cylinder heads and cylinders. It also keeps that same hot air from re-entering the engine compartment which would increase the engine temperature. We carry most all the engine sheet metal and tin that is needed to keep your engine cool. It is very important that all the engine tin be in place to keep your engine running properly. Unless you have a Baja Beetle or kit car, etc with an OPEN engine compartment, it is imperative to keep the engine tin in place.

When purchasing VW engine tin components it is important to know what configuration engine you have and the components on it. Check if you have a VW single port engine or dual port engine, are running heater boxes, and heat risers.
