Re: whats the compression on 2.0 block 8v head (citat3962)
I don't think we ever had Audi 16V's here but perhaps the 9A was available here is one of them. As I said there are very few Audi's around here in those models. We see S4's, or other larger ones.
My block is a common 3A bubble block. There were lots of those available in the early 90's thru places like RPI, and several of the other parts houses around greater Vancouver. I think mine originally came from RPI, was used for 15,000km, then somehow became the property of the guy I bought it from as a short block who made a living fixing and modifying VW's locally. His partner and friend at the time was the present owner of RPI, Dustan Woodhouse. I bought it for $1300 CDN and rebuilt it with new german bearings and rings. Had it balanced and it's been in storage since 93. Still need more stuff for it and to finish the head with a cam and a valve/seat grind. KS, exhaust stuff, motor mounts etc.
