      That is some flow! I was up around 12 psi in the midrange (around 4.5-5k) with my 54mm Lysholm pulley and stock intake manifold. I have no idea what it will be with the new setup.
      These heads work ridiculously well with boost IMHO...

      And they say size doesn't matter.

      Added 12 HP and 12 FT/Lbs over the factory head with just a G-grind Cam. (~ 14% increase.)
      Now I'm looking for another to find out what the oversized valves would do.

      I did have a question though for the experts...my head is machined for the shim under bucket lifters, and the springs they sent for the cam are larger OD than stock, so they don't fit in the stock spring seats. Are you not supposed to use spring seats with this setup?

      How much do people pay for Eurospec heads these days?

      Anyone know who purchased deathhare's Eurospec head?
      As an aside I think there are a few others that should be on this list.
      Atoson for one...

      Okay I'm here!!!
      I read through some of the posts regarding why would it be worth having one of these.
      1) I bought this in 96 from an outfit in Southern Ca. $950 + S&H waited 3 1/2 weeks to get it.
      2) EuroSpec was really trying to market was an Insurance offering to racer and weekend fly-boys.
      3) It was a design that gave it extra everything, just like Wendy's burger add from the early 90's Wheres the BEEF?
      4) The water passages were redesigned so it wouldn't be breached if you went with the largest valves you can find and had wider opening along it's route for higher coolant volume flow.
      5) Even the area were the stud for the idler pulley was beefed up so it could handle any radical ideas you can add to the weight (stress and tension)
      6) The lifter bores were shaved properly so it would hold up from cracks and accommodate the tallest cam configuration.
      7) I'm not sure but with all this beef, it had to be less heavier than the stock head.
      8) Instead of starting from less of a head after it's been machined you start at measurement thicker than the OEM head because it's brand new casting.
      9) I know it has thicker and longer valve guides.
      10) Valve seats were more secured adding again insurance to stay put in case you install race springs in the future.
      11) And finally you can truly say it's the only aftermarket head produced that didn't stick with any VW factory rules and stamped with a cool EUROSPEC on number 1 cylinder.

      Didn't you have two of these heads sometime in the past?

      Nope just one. I had two 4Motion kits at one time which I thought I 'd get stuck with. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I also have a Eurospec head. I purchased mine in 1997 and have been running it since. I also altered it from its original state. My head now has 40 x 35 valves, Arrow 37mm shim-under bucket lifters, schrick springs and a basically mild .450 lift Web Cam.
      One thing we noticed about the new Eurospec head was that the intake ports were mirror polished. We actually scuffed those and did some match porting, etc. before its original install.
      In 1997 I had a normally aspirated CIS 2.0L 8V(Rabbit) that went 14.90 @ 92mph, so I believe it worked pretty well.
      I also agree that similar performance can be gained if the right person does your head work on a stock counter-flow head. However, we decided to try the head because it could be had for relatively cheap back then and we also purchased a crate-motor 2.0L ABA from Eurospec at the same time. So I got a brand new early ABA and the Eursospec head all at once.
      I also believe that higher than .450 lift can work well with the correct combination in an 8V head. CIS has always limited my ability to test that in my particular combination.
      In its current configuration the my motor responds very well to nitrous oxide. A standard old Autotech 40hp Kit, has netted me a best of 13.8 and 101.5 mph, with the 13.8 coming on the brakes during a bracket race.
      I think one of Peter Tong's charger kits would function quite well with a Eurospec head.
      I'll quit rambling now.

      I paid 1300 BNIB for a stage 3 full race on ebay. I think they retailed for 3500 or so. Guy sent me a 340* cam, and all parts to assemble. It was complete, but I had to put it together and set the lash, etc.

      Hi Kris, seeing as you have one of the castings without provisions for injectors I gather you will be needing to do something "special" if you decide to swap to EFI...

    23. 06-06-2007 08:36 PM #48
      Well, I can always place the injectors in the manifold. What's strange is that it has the bubbled area under the cam cover for the injectors, but they are not cut, drilled, and tapped on the outside. I'm sure someone would do it for the right price, but that's a little extreme.

    24. 06-07-2007 08:39 AM #49
      The Audi 80 b3 4 cylinder engine will bolt right up and has the injector mounts right in the runners.
