2.7 would be pushing the limit of that block, unless you want to get really really really brave and do a deck plate. (You don't).
Kevin, not to go OT but what problems are you having with the eurojet cover?
The cranks wouldn't be too bad but I would have to be really convinced there is a market because the game starts at ~50 pieces, and there is a fair bit of design work too.
We don't do group buys anyways because we don't sell product that doesn't exist. There is too much risk to the consumer that it will fall through and leave a large group of customers unsatisfied.
Pete I pm'd you the issues Im experiencing. Let me know if there is anything you think I cant do to solve my problem and keep the vc on
no more ALH 20V?
This is a smarter move anyway. I am going to start my build soon , just waiting on this 02M gear kit to come in. Wanted to have custom ratio's so that we could swap out boxes for different set ups
Or bust. I have no intentions of falsifying anything, or fudging the numbers. If it only makes 6, then something will have to change until it hits the mark or blows up on a horrific fireball.
I have all the time in the world to fix and/or upgrade whatever breaks.
If I run out of fuel with id2000s and a 2500hp capable fuel pump, eiher well be at 1400awhp or something is going to be seriously wrong. Since I dont currently intend on buying a turbo that big (yet) it'll be the later.
With that asside, I just received the quote for the clutch. 7" triple disk.

Not to mention some people can use a little flame to get them to do crazier things just to prove other people wrong...
Like my uncles 91 (I think) Red 300zx convertible that overheated and caught fire on a NYC freeway, while it was snowing out. That man had a goal. Sure, it wasn't ridiculous amounts of horsepower from his stock N/A engine. He was going to get home and a little smoke from the engine wasn't going to stop him...

That 3.6 over 1100 with a gt45r. All wheel. i helped you with the wrong numbers
Anyway.. go on with the build,if you can hold this engine together you can reach 1000 on it.. i would go with at pt4276 billet instead and a girdle would help you a lot! good luck
R36T AWD 1100HP
To be honest i would love to see this happen its really a great goal and if the old 2.2 5cly did it then why not the newer ones. Btw i my self will be doing a balls to the wall 2.5 mk3 but no boost and goal is N/A 300whp some say its a crazy idea as well but from one 2.5 build to another best of luck
So if putting sleeves in is out of the question, I guess blue printing and balancing is gonna have to take the big toll of keeping everything happy? Honestly i thought 600 was a big goal, can't wait to see the progress and build. This is all relatively new to me so always up for learning, not as easy building a v8 for big numbers like im used to
pat, what do you need?? if possible, i'll send you the PDF.
Can anyone do me a quock favor and measure the center to center of the passenger side engine mount bolts. I was not sent the mount bar with the motor, and from the pictures I can dig up, it looks like a mk4 mount would bolt right up to that bar.

Got home, first wave of parts that have come in for the R. (bumpers not shown)
And a 400whp 425wtq kit for my DD saab 9-3, as well as some replacement stereo stuff I blew up.
Got a few pieces in for the Scirocco, too, but nothing to write home about. SS clutch line and walbro inline.
Tomorrow, after a visit with my surgeon, it's off to pick up the tranny, stop at the vw dealer, junk yard, some other errands, and then tear down time. Did a quick one-over of the engine. It's definitely there.

The whole trip home was a total wash, with the exception of picking up the transmission and seeing my friends. I got a little work done, but not completely torn down like I was hoping to. Granted, I didn't get started on it until about 11pm, and gave up around 2am. Without a bentley and the large enough bits, I couldn't strip the timing chains. Also, VW's fetish with 12-point screws on this motor is ****ing ridiculous. Using the right bit, about 75% of the 12 points stripped out; had to rely on the old "pound a six-point bit in 'ere with a hammer" trick. I'm going to have to find some six-points to replace all those with.
This was where I got to when my buddy said "Pat, good luck, but **** this stupid motor. If this were a 1.8t we'd be at the bare block by now. This is stupid. I'm going home"
And here's how I put her aside last night.
I could have gone farther with the timing chains, I bet, but like I said, without a bentley in hand, I didn't want to push it.
