      ROUND 3.

      I decided to make this thread after again getting quite a few PM's from members asking me to do a 16V G60 thread similiar to my 20V G60 Thread.Now my reply was that I had never built a 16V G60 ,I only had the knowledge and know how of a 16V (either 9A or PL) and a G60 engine (PG) and was unable to do a write up.After a while I thought about it and did the research,spoke to the guys that did it and decided I will do a write up.The following are useful links you can use when doing the Build up or you can accomodate all the 16V G60 information into 1 thread like what we did with the 20V G60 thread.

      1. Bahn Brenner's own build up process.

      I have a PG G60 8V,How do I convert it to a 16V G60?


      Quote, originally posted by Not2Fast »

      Taken from this site:
      PG - 1.8 8V G60 :
      Compression Ratio = 8:1
      Rod Length = 136mm
      Wrist Pin Diamater = 22mm
      Bore = 81mm
      9A - 2.0 16V :
      Compression Ratio = 10.8:1
      Rod Length = 144mm
      Wrist Pin Diameter= 20mm
      Bore = 82.5mm
      PL - 1.8 16V :
      Compression Ratio = 10:1
      Rod Length = 144mm
      Wrist Pin Diameter= 20mm
      Bore = 81mm


      According to the information posted above your going to have to get a set of custom pistons.Bahn Brenner sells a set of custom pistons for $699.95US


      Or you can contact Rodney Huss for your custom application.
      The reason you will need a custom set of Pistons is because placing a 16V head on an 8V Block lowers the CR approx 1.8 Points.Since the G60 engine is allready @ a CR of 8:1 then dropping that CR 1.8:1 points lower will bring it to about 6.2:1,definitely too low for a 16V G60.
      Now for the Conrods you can use your stock PG G60 rods but it is recommended that you use PL 16V Rods + Custom Pistons due to the fact that your rod ratio using the PG rods will be too short.
      Now that the pistons and Rods are out of the way your going to need the obvious:
      1. 16V Head,Either 9A or PL.9A has bigger Intake Ports.
      2. 16V Lower Intake Manifold.
      3. 16V Scirocco Upper Intake Manifold (pictured below)- This enables you to relocate the Throttle Body from the passenger side of the engine bay (LHD) to the drivers side of the engine bay.You can then still use your stock G60 filter box.
      4. Distributor
      Now you have 2 options for the Distributor set-up.

      1.

      Quote, originally posted by Distributor In Head »

      1.16V Distributor, complete
      2.16V Distributor Block off plate complete
      3.16V oil pump, complete
      4.16V Secondary shaft and gears complete
      5.16V Timing belt and gears, complete
      6.16V Exhaust Manifold or 16V Header



      2.

      Quote, originally posted by Distributor In Block i.e. Retaining the PG setup »

      1. CAM GEAR:
      16V Cam Gear
      Stock 20V/16V Cam Gear has 52 Teeth

      2. CRANK GEAR: 16v crank gear STOCK but an ABA crank pullye shaved 5.5mm with a new centering ring pressed in. Scirocco20v mods them for $10 if you supply it.or you can do it yourself.
      Stock 8V Crank Gear has 22 teeth
      Stock 16V/20V Crank Gear has 26 teeth

      3. INTERMEDIATE SHAFT GEAR:
      Combination of a 16V Cam Gear and an 8V Intermediate shaft.dont mod the gear...Mod the keyway in the IM shaft to fit the gear. The 8v used a press in half mood key way and the 16v cam gear uses a molded in 1/4 moon. It wont fit unless a path is cut in the IM shaft to fit the key on the gear to.
      If Building PG 16V Combination - Use PG IM SHAFT
      If Building ABA 16V Combination - Use ABA IM SHAFT

      4. TIMINT BELT:
      16V OEM Timing Belt


      Your Physical engine should be done @ this point.

      I have a 16V and I want to make it a 16V G60,what do I do?

      First the Compression Ratio of either the 9A or PL needs to be decreased.As stated above the 9A and PL have a CR of 10.8:1 and 10:1 respectively so you can either machine/dish the pistons to lower the CR or get a set of custom 83mm units.Below is a picture courtesy of OttawaG60 showing machined 9A units.


      Now that the internals are dealt with,your going to need quite a few parts off of a PG G60.John Doe...meet John Betz

      You have 3 Options:
      1.Scirocco 16V Upper Intake to place the TB On the drivers side.

      2. Audi S2 3B Intake Manifold chopped and modified to suit shown below.

      3. Modify your upper Intake manifold resemble what you see below

      I want to retain my AC,Do I have to relocate the Alternator?
      Yes,Lucky for you Bahn Brenner has an Alternator relocating kit.



      Quote, originally posted by John Doe »
      What about tuning?Can I retain my Digi-I?
      Yes you can,SNS Tuning seems to be the most favourable choice when it comes to Digi-I Chip Tuning and they can make a chip application for your 16V G60.
      If you want to drift away from the whole distributor/chip set up then you can go with TEC3 from Bahn Brenner
      or Stage Ic from 034EFI

      Hopefully if everything works out as planned you should obtain this Courtesy of John Betz @ Bahn Brenner Motorsports

      Bravo! Lots of good info here. I'm glad you made good use of the pics I sent you of the G60 charger brackets. Since I've already done this swap I was reading it for giggles and to see if I could add any info or answer questions and low and behold a spot a couple of my pics. Cool!

      I do have a few words of advice for anyone contemplating this swap. First, just because a respected shop sells it as a "kit" doesn't mean that it will be a simple bolt in installation. I learned that the hard way The devil is in the details. Once you get all the parts bolted in there are lots of details such as relocating many of the sensors and related wiring.

      On the bright side, if it was easy everyone would do it. If you have moderate mechanical/electrical skill and a huge amount of patience you can end up with an engine swap to be proud of, like this...


      9A 2.0L 16v Bottom end
      - 9:1 JE 83mm forged pistons
      - Fully balanced rotating assembly
      - ARP rod bolts and main cap studs
      - VW 16v windage tray w/ integrated oil pan gasket
      PL 1.8L 16v head mildly ported
      - Stock cams
      - Stock 16v dist on head
      - ABA steel shim head gasket
      - ARP head studs
      BBM screw compressor and silencer "kit"
      - At least these came with instructions. Even if they are for installation on a regular 8v G60.
      - Custom battery tray and hold down made from parts sourced at Murray's Auto
      BBM 16v integration "kit"
      - You're on your own with this one kids. No instructions included with "kit". Not even a parts list describing what each part is or where it goes.

      Link to a bunch of pics of my swap in progress http://www.hostdub.com/thetatau87_album02

      Please feel free to IM or e-mail me if you want more info or have questions.

      Easiest way to do this swap is start with a 9A, stack 2 ABA headgaskets.
      Remember the G60 flows ~300-350 cfm, so the boost you get on a 2L 16v will be ~10 psi.

      9A has better exhaust ports, and for this application, it's probably the better choice.
      IIRC not all 16v lower intake manifolds bolt up to the Scirocco.
      If you plan to use the Scirocco and the Dist, you'll need an elbow to clear it as the recirc will interfere.

      4. Distributor

      Stock 16v one is the way to go. Digifant will have no problems with it.

      Yes,Lucky for you Bahn Brenner has an Alternator relocating kit.

      There are also drawings of this on the yahoo group.
      Or you can try and mount it under the G60.

      I ran SDS with my engine, and am now working on MegaSquirt, 2 other options that would work well.

      Crankcase ventilation, make sure you vent the valvecover and the front of the block, and use a catchcan, some 16v's seem to spit oil.

      Corrado downpipe matches up with the 16v exhaust manifold, if you're in a Corrado, you can use that for exhaust.

      Fuel rail and injectors, plenty of good 16v fuel rails out there, injectors, try Ford motorsport green (#42), they are bosch.

      Don't forget the inserts (G60 injector for manifold)

      I'll keep adding as I remember things I've come across during my swap.


    8. 01-18-2005 08:32 AM #8
      Modding the 16v G60

      Cams, superchargers seem to be more tolerant of overlap than turbos, go for big lift, medium duration (don't want power band too high, have to overspin G60).
      Try Catcams 260's or dual exhaust.

      Porting charger and Pulley's, try 70 or 72mm and don't rev it to 8000
      You've got more engine to fill now and a better flowing head.

      P&P head

      Engine management, worthwhile taking a look at.

      The smaller the alt, the better. 16v one fits very nicely, but hits the subframe (Corrado).
      ABA fits, but I needed to make a custom bracket at the top and it hit (rarely).

      I think the alt from a Suzuki sidekick might work, it's tiny.

      Use a timing belt tensioner.

      it is just on a stand, still mocking everything up , so i cannt check .

      i am looking at this right now , a chevy alt brackets, they are adj. and i think that i can get them to mount to the rear of the motor , allowing me to move the alt to the rear . let me see if i can find a pic of the raket i am talking about. ( but the block has the wholes in the side where you would mount the a1 side motor mount, so i may be able to get it there . ) let me get a pic for you all.

      THIS IS A BETTER PIC, picture this mount as if you are lookinf at the back of the motor, and i would just have to make a braket to bolt this part to , very easy, then find a point to bolt the adj arm to . the alt will be lower then the kits but it may work just fine.

      dame it , cannt get the photo to rotate.but you can get the idea, may go to a junk yard and pull one off an old chevy to try it . may be enough room for it , but it is close to the rear motor mount and down pipe.

    25. 01-20-2005 07:27 AM #25
      It's cut in that photo eh?
      I have to make the hole a little bit bigger to allow me to fit a piece of pipe in there to clear the charger hump.

      Waterpump pulley.

      This one seems to stall several people, I found that a factory ABA pulley fits perfectly (flipped).

      Judging from the Roma Tuning website it is taken from, it is Robert van Wijk's manifold

      Nope, it's from Roma Tuning, I just posted it as an interesting solution to the problem

      heres a good one. i have been thinking about this for the last 2 hours and cannt see why it wont work. someone shoot this down if i am wrong.

      i can use the bbm dist. block off plate on the 16v head , run my stock g-60 dist. on the block , ( granted i have to use the TT adaptor ring, 8v oil pump, 8v crank gear, 8v intermead. shaft. ) and then jsut run the car like stock. this will elimate the need to have the crank pulley shaved. i will have to use a 8v cam gear, intmed. gear , and 8v crank gear.

      am i correct?

      reason for this , is i build a monster motor for my old gti , and i am getting the motor back through a trade, it only has 700 miles on it. it is ( as in the gti now ) a 14:1 2L 8v, here is a list of what is in it
      je 9:1 2L 16v pistons
      shaved and balanced 8v interm shaft
      light weight interm gear
      balanced and polished 9a rods
      knifed and balanced crank
      tt dist ring
      8v oil pump
      8v crank gear
      so running the dis. in the block will save me time and cash from having another interm. shaft shaved, looking for a 16v oil pump ( i sold the one i had after i finished the motor )

      i dont think that i am wrong , the only thing that may get me is will a 8v cam gear fit on a 16v cam. ( i am almost sure , just havent checked yet. ) oh and i will use a 8v timing belt. what do you think am i crazy? or am i on to something.

      starting to anwser my own question, after looking around at 16v cams, doesnt look like a 8v gear will fit on it , but if i just take the center out of a adj 16v and bolt it to a adj 8v gear, it will work.
      now who is the wizard on this? IS THE CAM ROTATION RPM THE SAME FRO A 16V AS A 8V , GIVING THAT THE TWO BELTS HAVE MORE TEETH ?

      ie: will the 16v cams move at the wrong speed because of the 8v belt being used. i see it as the same speed as long as i have the 8v crank gear and the 8v cam gear.
      to much thinking
      thanks for the help, i am sure this is helpping more then just me.

      I have a PG G60 8V,How do I convert it to a 16V G60?

      Well first of all your going to have to get a set of custom pistons.Bahn Brenner sells a set of custom pistons for $699.95US

      Or you can contact Rodney Huss for your custom application.
      The reason you will need a custom set of Pistons is because placing a 16V head on an 8V Block lowers the CR approx 1.8 Points.Since the G60 engine is allready @ a CR of 8:1 then dropping that CR 1.8:1 points lower will bring it to about 6.2:1,Definately too low for a 16V G60.
      Now for the Conrods you can use your stock PG G60 rods but it is recommended that you use PL 16V Rods + Custom Pistons due to the fact that your rod ratio using the PG rods will be too short.
      Now that the pistons and Rods are out of the way your going to need the obvious:

      1. 16V Head,Either 9A or PL.9A has bigger Intake Ports.
      2. 16V Lower Intake Manifold.
      3. 16V Scirocco Upper Intake Manifold (pictured below)- This enables you to relocate the Throttle Body from the passenger side of the engine bay (LHD) to the drivers side of the engine bay.You can then still use your stock G60 filter box.
      4.16V Distributor, complete
      5.16V Distributor Block off plate complete
      6.16V oil pump, complete
      7.16V Secondary shaft and gears complete
      8.16V Timing belt and gears, complete
      9.16V Exhaust Manifold or 16V Header
