      I agree with the 4 thrust washers. Also, its easier to have the crank centered before lowering the center main in there.

      On an 82mm stroker with 9.5:1 comp and FSI gasket, you're around 9.98:1
      On an 83mm stroker with 9.5:1 comp and FSI gasket, you're around 10.26:1

      If the NA gasket is 1.1mm

      Do a leak down to make sure you're sealed properly. If coolant is getting into your combustion, you can do a monoxide test in your coolant system. Also, the fsi is great on bored blocks but be...

      This is partially true. In road racing, you are downshifting which adds another variable to load transference which is actually similar to braking. Not sure how long he was running with a compromised...

      Here's the backside of brand new ACL bearings... They will vary but you get the idea. The rod bearings on a big turbo build will naturally flatten somewhat so the bearings will roll to a certain...

      There is nothing wrong with the cometic gasket. They do require a good clean surface but there's less chance of overhang on bored cylinders which can promote preignition and head lifting as they...

      The ACL's or Kings (I've been using these for a while now) are great bearings. Its not really for the coating as I feel bearing coatings are marginally effective. Its mostly for the hardening process.

      The 'discoloration' is the normal heat treatment that these types bearings undergo. It's probably been a while so you don't remember but that is exactly how they went in.

      Its not an FSI tensioner, its an FSI styled tensioner that comes in kit form only that is specific to the 1.8t. Its got a nice preload tensioning mechanism that takes the guesswork out of tensioning...

      You would think that a piston mfr would know what they are doing but I dont think they spend a great deal of time manufacturing as per each engine's requirements. I recently had an engine equipped...

      I stock the long ones as they are machined by Bosch and not the supplier. But it's a custom factory batch

      The conical tips are just machined. It's mostly cosmetic. What's important is the machining of the diffuser.

      They are both essentially the same as far as function. The difference being one is just shorter then the other. I actually have the longer 279s that were factory prepped to flowed 1000s from Bosch in...

      Perform the leakdown. It's far more indicative of the state of your engine although your comp test results are pretty suspect already. In my shop, my leakdown tester gets more mileage

      if it's an internal actuator problem, you may need to preload it a little or even think about a dual stage at some point with a nice boost controller. You'll usually have some level of boost drop...

      Its mostly the strength differences due to construction and material thicknesses along the horizontal axis. I-beams are typically much stronger then H-Beams pound for pound.
