    i am rebuilding the 2.8 out of my 2003 Passat sedan. What is the lowest CR pistons I can put in the block? I am keeping an eye on a Future 2.7 swap, and would like to only buy pistons once. Can I put 9:1 pistons in the 2.8, keeping in mind that it will be N/A for about a year.

    The cylinder head isn't worth machining and the block has at least 1 bent connecting rod. What is the biggest size piston I can put into this block? I will also need to know where to find the parts. I may be needing a head too. I live in Hawaii and used parts are hard to find and most mainland...

    WTB: AWM piston & rod I'm trying to piece together an engine that dropped a valve in my 2002 1.8T. I need one good used OEM AWM piston and rod. I also need a good used AWM head. Don't necessarily need cams, lifters and tensioner, but do need valves and springs in it.

    after market that is? My block almost has 200k on it and I'm going to rebuild it. Also can anyone go ahead and recommend a forged piston set for me? Preferably something that won't break the bank. IE rods, motor/tranny mounts are on the way. Thanks for your help. :thumbup: -Andrew

    So I posted the forum on how to change a water pump and timing belt. Well with all those problems, the right side of the engine on my 2001 VW Passat V6 4Motion, had bent valves. To top that, 4 were completely broken off and implanted into the piston head. The mechanic wants to find a new...

    Hi, The two pistons (or maybe its one) seem to be broken. It takes quite a bit of effort to open the trunk. It stays open pretty good but it is sure heavy. Can someone point me to the right part & possibly an online source? Thanks, Rich
