With the introduction of the MQB EA888 Gen3 1.8T/2.0T engine came multiple advancements in technology and production. Significant weight savings were accomplished through molded plastic parts throughout the powertrain; unfortunately, this included the engine's oil pan. With no protection to cover such an important, yet fragile part, it's easy to see why a plastic oil pan needs protection!
For the daily driver at stock height or the enthusiast with an aggressive suspension drop, our ECS Aluminum Street Shield adds peace of mind and protection against potholes, road debris and other predators looking to put a hole in your pan.
Protect your vitals with our ECS Tuning in-house engineered Aluminum Street Shield Skid Plate Kit. Constructed from 3/16" (4.76mm) thick 5052 aluminum and weighing in at only 16.15 lbs, with factory modeled air ventilation, our skid plate is sure to stand up to harsh road conditions that your OEM plastic belly pan could not.
Additionally, the ECS skid plate encompasses the full length of the engine undercarriage from the front bumper cover to the front engine subframe to provide complete protection. Conveniently this kit includes zinc-coated steel subframe hardware, aluminum skid plate spacers and all factory mounting hardware for easy installation and corrosion resistance.
Engineered and manufactured in the USA, you can expect nothing but the best performance and longevity with our superior Aluminum Street Shield Skid Plate Kit from ECS Tuning!
