So it has to be a custom header then what are the options?
i've got an aeg 2.0 and an awp 1.8t with bent valves in the garage i got for free. Is there anyone here who had done this 20v head swap succesfully, page one has zero people listed as completing the swap. I know a few have done it on aba's and what not. Please let me know. I need specifics and i want to start building soon. I'm getting a another car very soon to drive over the winter

So I got a AEB head and a AEG 99.5. Would 9A 16v 2L pistons make this a fairly bolt on affair? What compression ratio would this achieve?
A lot of the guys with the older style blocks seem to run the 9A pistions with a notch for the 3rd valve with no issues I've heard of yet. I'm planning to run megasquirt on it and am not sure if I will do turbo or NA(depends how cheap I can do this)
building a DD and have been planning it for months now, was planning on swapping blocks and upgrading rods and pistons.
came on here to see if anyone has used a TDI crank in an AEG hoping to see how easy it would be to make a 2.1 or 2.2L.
then i hear about this oil squirter issue, i thought the AEG had oil squirters. i just read that pete from IE doesnt reccomend the swap because the lack of the squirters.
what are people doing about this ? anything ? what happens if i use the aeg block with out them.
GT3076 around 28 PSI. (High RPM - 9.5k)
Anyways, I'm using my AEG block and I wont sweat not having the squirters....if you are shooting for really high HP, then it'd probably be a smart investment. But I'm shooting for 300-400hp, and I believe the AEG block will be sufficient.
I have a few questions for those that have done this build:
Is using the 16v wires a better idea then using 1.8t coilpacks with the harnesses added in to the 2.0 engine harness?
I have a AZG it has squitters so it better to have them? I have pistons and rods to make the 20v swap but i need to get the other parts. Zaskar is doing a build below is the build with a AEG 20v and a F4t.
instead of replacing or notching the pistons, couldn't the right size headspacer keep the valve from smacking the piston?
I still need more info on this.
iv been reading and preparing to build this for about a year.
I need to know what parts are needed.
on hand i have
2002 awp gti donor car, the block is unsuable.
i have an AEB head in my basement and a AEG block and Crank.
I would like to use the AEB head and find a AVH block with Oil squirters.
as for the parts list i think i need but know im missing some stuff.
Eurospec 83mm 5v pistons
forged rods (144mm, 20mm)
European head gasket
1.8t timing belt kit
id also need to shave down the 4th oil squiter
then everything else from a stock 1.8t gets swapped over ?
could Richard_Cranium or mk4_2.ho chime in i belive you are buildin gor have built them ?
you need pistons for 92.8mm crank and 144mm rods. Thats about it. you can swap the 06X oil filter flange over, etc. depending on piston size will depend on gasket you use. I did not have to modify any squirters for my AVH block.
I have a APK block setup with a AGU big port head turbo manifold ko3 turbo custom piping running with Megasquirt 2 it revs to 7000 rpm easy it needs tuning some more but it runs except for the clutch slipping a bit, I took out the pistons got them notch for the fifth valve ,realy nice set of MAHLE pistons by the way used a 2.0l head gasket i got from Germanautoparts.com 1.8t heat bolts and rod bolts
