 Modular Aluminum Oil Filter Housings For VW And Audi 24V 2.8/3.2/3.6L Engines !

Please read the special note at the end before ordering.

This product is intended to replace VW/Audi Part Number 071-115-433 (071115433). Please check the OEM part number of your oil filter housing cap before ordering. You can do this easily by calling your dealer and giving them your VIN # and asking them to tell you the part number for your oil filter housing cap. 

Just like our best selling billet MK2/MK3/MK4 VR6 and 4.2L V8 oil filter housing caps -- This one was worth the wait ! Never, but NEVER break a flimsy plastic oil filter housing again. Or deal with the unsightly leaks created by the cheaply made (yet expensive) plastic OEM housing cracking and deflecting. We made this one the way VW and Audi should have – from A SOLID BLOCK OF ALUMINUM, by God!

First, we start with a massive chunk of Aircraft Grade 6061-T6511 Aluminum. The section is delicately placed on one of our special CNC machining centers and precision cut to EXACTLY match the OEM plastic housing. The metal gods (well, in this case, one of our highly talented CNC programmers) has programmed elaborate steps for the very time consuming and expensive operation of profiling the special buttress threads into the housing using the exact DIN spec thread cutting tool required for a perfect seal. 

This part comes with 2 threaded holes (M10x1) with steel drain plugs installed in both as shown in the pictures.  You can therefore choose to install a VDO pressure sender in the center hole (VDO P/N 360 015) and/or a VDO temperature sender in either the outboard threaded hole or center threaded hole (VDO P/N 323 423).  Please note the pressure sender will only fit in the center hole due to its size.  Either hole can be retained as a drain.  Please note the temperature and pressure senders are not included, you can source those from many retailers (such as Summit Racing).  This DOES include the 2 steel drain plugs.

This product is intended to replace VW/Audi Part Numbers 071-115-433 (071115433) or equivalent. Please check the OEM part number of your oil filter housing cap before ordering. You can do this easily by calling your dealer and giving them your VIN #. Please note we do have the option to also buy the OEM Filter --  P/N 071-115-562C (071115562C) or equivalent.  Please note we sell Mahle, Hengst, Mann, or similar filters.  It wont come in a VW/Audi package but these are excellent filters.

Special Note At The End : 
You will need to carefully remove the sping bypass valve located at the base of your OEM plastic oil filter cap and install it into this billet housing cap as shown in these videos :

Removal of OEM bypass assembly from OEM cap video

Installation of OEM bypass assembly into GruvenParts billet cap video

Carefully push down on the bypass valve inside your OEM cap and deflect the spring to 1 side fully.  The whole bypass valve will then unclip from the plastic OEM cap.  Install it in the same position into our billet cap.  It is easiest to do this on a work bench, just use a suitable deep well socket to fit against the spring bypass valve, face the cap down (bowl at top) while aligning the bypass valve with the metal tangs on our billet housing.  Then apply about 10 lbs of force downward while wiggling side to side gently.  Your existing bypass valve will snap into place over the metal tangs in our housing.  YOU MUST INSTALL THE BYPASS VALVE.  If you do not, the oil will simply bypass the filter and will not be cleaned.

When installing this cap into the oil filter housing, please clean all threads and use a bit of anti-seize on the threads of our part to make this easier to remove during your next oil change. Also, be sure to lubricate the o-ring with some fresh oil so it is not torn during installation.  This part doesnt come with the O-ring -- that comes with the filter itself.


Product Reviews

  1. Well crafted piece 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th May 2017

    This is the second adapter I've bought so that I can monitor oil pressure on my VR6 engines. It's a beautiful piece and an shame it ends up buried in the engine bay. I use an M10 banjo bolt to -4AN adapter, short piece of -4AN line and then a AN to NPT adapter to connect the oil pressure sensor. That way the sensor adapter is not likely to shear off or fatigue due to vibration (larger mass on small diameter connection)

  2. Exactly what I needed 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jan 2016

    Worked like a charm. Easy to install.

  3. Fantastic Quality 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Oct 2015

    I have not been able to install the product yet b/c I am still breaking my motor in from a fresh build; however, this will be going on during the first oil change. The product quality is exceptional, a very well machined part!

  4. Excellent Piece Like ALL Of Your Products 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Jan 2015

    The Cap Itself Is Machined Top Quality But The ONLY Criticism I Have Is Not On The Product But On ThON Times Better To Offer It (EVEN With The Additional Cost Its Worth EVERY DAM DIME) With That Dam Piece You Have To Remove From The OEM Filter Cap And Transfe Additional Options ... It Would Be A MILLIer Over , Because While Removing Mine JUST like The Video Showed It Broke Off Two Of The Tabs Off And The Top Part With The Small Spring In It (137k Miles on MY R) .... So Now My Car Is Down For Atleast 3 Days While I Get A New Oem Cap Shipped To Me Since They Dont Sell Just That Part Apparently . *End Rant*

    -- response from GruvenParts --

    Thanks for your comment Chris. We can certainly provide the part turn key complete but as you said it would require also buying a plastic OEM cap to transfer the bypass from.

    For any customers uncertain or having issues they can just call to arrange sending the OEM part and we can transfer the bypass valve.

  5. Awesome piece!! 5 Star Review

    Very well made part - as to be expected from Gruven!
    Thank you very much for taking our requests into consideration when finalizing the design, really turned out great!

  6. Fantastic Craftsmanship! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Sep 2014

    I pre-ordered this because I was tired of the plastic filter cap leaking. The craftsmanship of this part is second to none!
    Make sure you read the instructions or watch the videos and using anti-seize on the threads is a must.
