[Bits & bobs]
We have the experience and facilities to build all sizes of motor from a daily driven 1776cc to a monster 2443cc. All machine work is carried out by a local specialist precision engineer, we can machine cases for larger barrels and pistons, drill and tap for full flow oiling, and bore/fly-cut cylinder heads.
The first step in building an engine is to establish your budget and what you require depending on planned vehicle use - e.g. daily driver, weekend toy, or full-time race car.
The next step is to compile a list of engine components that will give the required performance, reliability and longevity.
We can supply you with a kit of all the parts you require after consultation for self assembly - although we would only advise this be undertaken by someone with experience of building VW engines.
If you are after a price then please contact us.
All our engines - from mild to wild - are built the same way:
Here are some pictures of a 2443cc engine during assembly:
We offer a bench running facility. This enables the engine to be put through a rigourous pre-oiling routine to obtain oil pressure before the engine is fired and minimise initial wear between camshaft and lifters before start-up. The engine is then run for 30 minutes at between 2,500 and 3,000 RPM after which it is allowed to cool. The valve clearances are re-checked, the oil is changed and your choice of carburettors is fitted and tuned.
