Like the topic says. I want a new motor sometime and I thought i would get everyones opinon. I know most would probaly prefer the vr6 for a swap but i just want an opinon out of these two. Please tell me some info about them that would be helpful.
I'd say if you are going with boost and want to keep it cheep I'd go with a ABA w/1.8v head and a 1.8 turbo diesel exhaust manifold and turbo but if you're going for N/A there is no excuse for better flow-I'd say 2.0 16v and Not because I have one myself (Most all of my friends drive 8v and they couldn't be happier) but once again with flow comes power- expensive power but still power none the less. 8v and 16v are both good and have completely different personalities so try to find and drive both this way you will know what you like.
(Partly) Because the Mk1 Scirocco has a low hood I am a fan of the Audi 3A 'bubble block'. It's a bolt up, if you add a knock sensor system to the Ignition.
btw- Which car is this motor meant for anyway?
Mmmmmm Two Liters.
