Re: How does MKIV headgasket work? (VR66m!)

Its increases the compression because it is thinner and you could get one from the local stealership for about $65.

Re: How does MKIV headgasket work? (VR66m!)

THE VW PART NUMBER IS "021-103-383-N" IT HAS A SUGGESTED LIST OF 67.55, BUT, MOST DEALERS WILL TRY TO GET YOU FOR MORE IF YOU DON'T KNOW THE EXACT SUGG. LIST. MAKE SURE NOT TO USE SEALER WHEN INSTALLING THE NEW HEAD GASKET. YOU WILL ALSO NEED 3 OF THE INTAKE GASKETS BETWEEN THE UPPR AND LWR INTAKE PART # "021-133-237" AND A NEW VAlVE CVR GASKET WOULD BE RECOMMENDED PART # "021-103-483-D" . IT IS A SIMPLE JOB, JUST BE SURE TO TORQUE THE HEAD BOLT TO THE CORRECT TORQUE SPECIFICATION WHICH YOU CAN GET OUT OF A BENTLEY MANUAL AVAIL @ YOUR LOCAL VW DEALER

Re: How does MKIV headgasket work? (Euro Flavor)

How many hours of labour does this take and how many [approx] hp is gained ?
What is the downside of doing this ?

If its just the gasket I would say 3-5 hours tops but if you gonna go that far you might as well change you timing chain and you guides as well for safety and reliabilty which could take alittle longer

Don't forget the most important part of the job. NEW head bolts, don't reuse the original bolts.
How about new cams, lifters, springs, valve stem seals, Ti retainers, port and polish, w/p(s), the list goes on and on.
