      1.9l ABA

      I'm finally building my ultimate 8V, something i've thought about doing for years now.

      OBDI ABA block w/ squirters, bored to 83.5mm

      86.4mm crank (yes- short throw, many revs)

      IE 159mm rods

      The reality here is that, with some head work and a carb setup, you might see 140- 150 hp at the crank. There is no cheap way to get big hp from an 8V VW on carbs. Also, the pics don't work.

      It seems that next Friday will be the day I get the block back from the machine shop. A few more odds and ends to purchase before then. :)

      I used the CIS injector cups for my CIS injectors in a Digi head, just couldn't use shrouded injectors or lower plastic cups. Worked fine.

      It doesn't drone or fill the car with a terrible sound. Nice low grumble, reminds me of a Harley at idle. Low for a 4 cylinder, not the typical fart-can Honda sound at all, louder at full throttle...
