So yesterday i get my a2 vr running at like 3 am. So i am letting it idle to warm up so i can see if the fans and everything comes on. While it was sitting getting warm all of a sudden it makes a bunch of noise and dies.
Well here is why i have JE forged pistons, mk4 head gasket 268 cams and a rebuilt head that was decked too far. When things got warm it bent three valves and broke the cam gear key way on the front cam.
Here are the pics

Fully assembled

Broken motor not

Now i have a second question

Je pistons
tt 2.5 SS borla exhaust
Short shift
lightened underdrive pullies
No ps
no ac
lightened flywheel
kent six puck rigid clutch

Man i'm a week or two out from finishing my swap. I'd be pissed if the thing blew up.

It's more of the effort involved in putting a motor in, and then taking it back out. The first vr swap we did (it was a built 2.9), the guy drove it for a few weeks, and then the chain guides started making noise. So we pulled off the tranny and changed them (much easier to do with the motor out of the car). Then, he changed his oil but apparently didn't get the filter cap on correctly. The oil buzzer went off, he ignored it, and drove on. Motor stopped. Motor came out, another motor went in.
The last vr swap we did ended up with the owner try to use it as a whisper-chipper by plowing directly into a tree. I'd post the link to the thread, but I'm not going to jack buddy's thread.
Suffice to say, that is the risk you take with doing these swaps. Good luck, and I think those mods should put you in the low 14s easily.
