according to me, you missed some informations….in first thread, deal was achieve a decent engine bhp without trading torque @low end in all motor, because it could killed drivebability in mk4 plateform with 1580kgs!!!
today to make power on r32 engine,this is a money & time question: pistons oversized with high CR, headwork, cams with 280deg 12mm lift and you could get 100bhp with oem intake…..there is no interest in this formula without spending a lot of cash money.
Not trading torque and increase top bhp, this is the real and initialised project. alot of people make some decent bhp but….engine couldn't be used in daily
