    I have them, not yet fitted, but lovely looking bits of kit.

    Sam Bryant is running them in his engine, as are many others on the Seat forum.

    Welly also has a set in his new build.

    Bill looked at mine, and said they were very much identical to the IE rods I believe.

    Good kit as far as I'm concerned (Y)

    Didn't mean to delete that last post.

    So the 2.0tfsi is the same as the 1.8t just stronger and different pistons needed. Cool.

    not sure what you mean by stronger dan?

    tfsi crank when used in transverse 1.8t strokers has the oil pump drive sweated on, and special pistons which alter the pin height..

    92,8mm crank on 82.5mm pistons in a 1984cc ABF engine for example has 159mm rods, but its block is some 15mm taller measuring crudely from base to top of block.

    I have a GT2871R kit but being as i decided to have a go at making the leon 4WD (hence me joining here as i will be using S3 rear end) i thought i'll go even bigger.
    Looking into the 500's now, some the new borgwarner EFR series are very tempting
