      Nothing new this week - I'll be on vacation for a week, once that's done my evenings and spare time will be fully devoted to getting this done.

      Well here's some shots of the pistons in the block, the crank as well. Things are coming along with the project - still shooting for an end of August install.

      Pistons in block

      Bottom end with oil pump in place

      Close up of knife edging on crankshaft with ARP main studs and rod bolts.

      You can see the drilled journals which is for further weight reduction of the crank

      Well after some little delays - you'd be amazed this swap has parts from every watercooled engine VW has sold in the US - 8v, 16v, VR6, TDI and 20v.

      Here's some more shots -

      Head

      Head

      Block in car

      Oilpan

      Looking up into the motor on the lift.

      Hey, I still have that header for you. There is just no chance I am going to make it out in the evening to meet up, baby boy is proven to be quite a handful in the evening/night. It's here at the house if you want to make a run to come get it some time.

      It's going into a 4 door mk3. I already have 4 - 45mm ITB's - I used to run my 8v on them, but of course the 8v couldn't utilize them fully, this 20v should.

      Oh, you used to have an 8v? I think i saw your car on the dyno at NGP. I had the green corrado that was going on after yours with Kevin B. tuning it. Setup looks good man. Keep it up

      Sick project.

      Just how do you verify power gains on a dyno when every part comes from a different motor?

      Seriously though, a great avenue to explore.


    23. 09-21-2006 01:05 PM #128
      nice work,bro. you surely do your research and homework. It shows!!

      so ..make sure of 2 things ...

      1- we need more pics
      2- we need a video with SOUND!


      oh. what'd you cook today?

      The crank is not a stock machined piece. It's an after market forged 4340 Eurospec crank. It's their lightweight racing crank, the drilled journals do not comprimise the motor in a naturally aspirated motor however on a boosted motor I'd get the non drilled version of this crank. IIRC the crank was in the $1200 range.

      Well it's not going to be completed this weekend - the DCOE flange for the ITB's is not perfectly centered for the ITB's so a new flange will have to be made. Other than that it's a go.

      If you're doing it in a A4, you're pretty much stuck with the AEB block as the tall deck aba is going to have a few issues being squeezed into the Audi's engine bay. Also, the AEB is a good block. Just need a 2l crank, rods and pistons.

      i am gonna lose sleep thinking about this beauty, save me the frustration, and double/triple/quadruple check your timing before you bolt down this magnificent head, you will have to sell organs to buy those pistons again.
