Re: i want pics of engine compartments with a 2.0l 8v in them (wa92GTI)

I'm almost through acquiring parts for my turbo kit, this should help some. My main gripe with the ABA 2.0 is that is is oversquare (long stroke in proportion to piston diameter.) This results in a torque biased motor that is decent for hardcore low-speed commuter duty, but makes relatively low hp in comparison to 4 cylinder engines from other manufacturers with similiar displacement. The motor is reluctant to rev and is happiest at a static RPM. It has more in common with an Onan power production unit on a welder or generator than a car engine. It is TOUGH however, and can take forced induction pretty well.
