    1. 09-09-2004 02:59 PM #1
      i tryed the search function on this page and didnt come up with any info
      basically im wondering if they offer stroker kits for 8v's

      you have a certain ammount of displacement in your engine right?
      so im wondering if they offer a strocker kit that can offer you more,
      serious gains from doing something like this, let me all know if you have more information.

      p.s. about 2 more months tell i have my digi 2,
      when i get it, im so gonna be a post whore.

      no reason for it
      just swap a 2.0 aba or 3a under your head.

      theres no point in stroking it b/c we already have the 2.0, but you can go up to a 2.2 i believe if you have a 2L

      yeah i would figure as much, i was thinking of doing this a while back but gave up on the idea. the power gain really wouldnt be all that great

      No but itd sure give for low end grunt if you cant use the high end. Im gettin started on one shortly...Seeing as I cant spin past 6500rpm anyway

      But for the $$$ you wont see much in the way of a peak power increase. But there will be an increase in low end and mid range on the order of 10-20hp depending on what parts you use and mods you do.

      Yea... thats understood, its just that it is not worth the money and time to increase displacement via a stroker kit, when 2.0 bottom ends are so plentiful. They are cheap, and its a direct swap, which will achieve what you seek.

      Actually the second post was helpful....

      Basically what the other posters are TRYING to say is that
      YES there is a "stroker" avail for the 1.8L motor - its called a 2.0L motor.

      The 2.0L motor is essentaily a stroked 1.8L - and it bolts right up to yer existing head so for all practiacly purposes - its a "stroker" kit.

      The advantage - its all OEM stuff - so durability is great and parts are EASILY available.

      Thats why you dont see the aftermaket offering a stroker for the 1.8L - becuase VW makes one - and you can find one in the junkyard pretty cheap.

      Next Q - does anyone make a multi valve head for the 1.8L - maybe even a twin cam head - or btter yet - how about a cross flow head, or a twin cam cross flow head or like a 5 valve head

      http://www.thepaty.plus.com/8v/ check out tops 10 8v normally aspirated
      8v can be fix up just take lil more time,money,effort and lookin for parts then droppin an 16v or a vr6
      8v can make power! someone on that website has 194hp!non forced induction either

      This 8v are awesome cars...You can do alot with a little. Do not go and spend money on the Autotech stroker 2.0 kit. Just go grab a ABA 2.0 bottom, swap it in, then go take your head(if you can afford the down time, or just buy one) and get one of those head jobs (so to speak) done. You can find one at tmtuning.com the have brand new heads for the 8v for 520.00, and there 6.2 cylinder head modification is 600. So you can either send yours in, or buy a new one. They will rebuild it for ya...I dont know how much though...

      I was quoted for the cylinder head mod, new cam, rsd throttle body, and match ported for about 1100 dollars...That is not bad considering the work they do to your stuff

      Then take the ABA bottom and get the crank lightened. Get the block honed and pistons blasted and faces recut. Throw on a header, hi flo cat a piper cam and a custom PVC intake then you should have a pretty decent N/A car...just a budget buildup...Under 2 grand if you find some pretty good dealers...or just piece it together over time...You can do it the easy way with just throwing the 2.0 block on there or the semi easy way and rebuild the whole block with performance in mind, or you can do it the bulletproof motor and room for more potential in the future. Here is the list

      Rebuild the head with HD springs and retainers, Match port and port and polish the head. Do a 3 angle valve job. Go get an RSD throttle body. A fab big bore intake. Take the ABA bottom end and go get some Newer pistons from JE. Bore it about 20 over. Don't push it and save some room for later with the 20 bore. Get forged rods and lighten and balance the crank. Throw some new rings and bearings in there.

      Go get a 16v tranny or if you can the tranny that came in the Xflow cars. I think it should bolt up right...The 16v will though.

      All that should take care of the engine if you want to keep it that way. If you get it all done at once, I say about 2500 to 3000 for the whole thing...Maybe more.

      People say they like doing this because it keeps the weight down and produces a substantial amount of torque with a good power band. You should have 160 to about 170 at the wheels...

      Go grab the details by using the search option or cruise the fixx for the http://www.vwfixx.com/forums/i...25575

      It has some pretty good info..

      Later
