      also older GTI's from germany had came with external oil coolers if you search the classifieds

      No thread, it's a full tube frame Scirocco SCCA road racer. It still has a Scirocco factory metal roof and the rest of the body work is fiberglass. Weighs ~ 2000lbs with a driver and runs on 15x23x9.5" Hoosier Bias ply racing slicks.

      Not a lot of extra power to be gained from those two mods but the engine will rev a bit quicker and smoother
      The more balanced the internals are, the less they rob you of some power.

      How is this during normal driving? Will you have to rev the **** out of it to get to the next stop light?

      Decided to follow up on my old topic to let the vortex know how this one turned out.

      Eventually the engine ended up as follows:

      -9A, knife edged, balanced and lightened crank
      -stock rods n pistons (balanced)
      -14:1 geometric CR
      -head was modified as stated in the OP
      -decided to go with a 309* @0.1mm , 14.5mm lift cam
      -E85
      -ms2extra
      -full standalone ignition (DIS-coilpack)

      42mm gsx-r ITB's, fabbed a CNC full aluminium press-fit flange that bolted to a DCOE manifold

      The engine pulled 190BHP at the crank (not bad for a counterflow-8v), with the torque kicking in at 4000rpm up till 7500, around 210Nm max. Dyno was no happy-number-dyno, so figures should be pretty decent.

      Problem was the engine wasn't getting as much air as we'd hoped for, the VE/torque/BMEP being not as high as should be. Engine did not respond well to ignition timing changes or even a complete change to ogygenated fuel. It wasn't getting the air it needed.

      The manifold was a late-saturday kinda job, the ITB flange was perfect but the DCOE manifold as it turned out had already been "tuned" by a former owner, thus making it pretty crap when it comes to smooth flow. Decided to bolt it on anyway, few days until dyno, I'm sure you guys have been there .

      This winter we're planning on doing some minor mods to our nice little engine:
      -wiseco piston kit
      -aftermarket lightweight rods
      -better/smoother and longer velocity stacks
      -proper manifold with smooth transition from the ITB's to the manifold. Possibly replacing the 42mm ITB's to 45mm.
      -Custom cam, slightly lower duration, same lift. Engine powerband started approx. 1K to high.

      Hoping these mods will allow us to break the 200BHP mark.

      Sorry guys been meaning to come with a meaningful update to this thread for a while, however some troubles over the winter meant this 8v engine is still not mounted together (can't do some of the machining jobs ourselves, and the people that would have been doing it didn't). Was hoping to show some dyno-charts somewhere around march, quite frustrated the engine still isn't running.

      Car currently runs our back-up engine, stock ABF running 45mm jenvey ITBs, but would much rather have been blasting around with some 8V alcohol!

      Still a bit reluctant to show pics though, know some of the competition lurks on the vortex, don't want them to know exactly which car it is that runs these specs!
