you sure the oem on is 1.6mm stace?
WTF is that off and have you measured it?
Definately a difference between the Bam gasket and the N/a gasket I've got (not sure what N/A just is one most people run when bored over 82.5mm), which can even be felt in your hands how much flimsier it is and I measured 0.5mm difference with a vernier iirc
is it only suitable to be used on overbored blocks?
and also how does it differ to the oem one in that people put these on stroked engines?
Would that gasket not be off the u.s spec 2.0 20v n/a engine? I'm going to order one of those and see what's what.
Some form of N/a or whatever it may be gasket
Can see how much flimsier it is
Two side by side
As said this is a really common gasket to be used with over bores with people including Bill and Andrew iirc to name a few
Can't imagine it will be a problem on standard bore as the normal gasket is bigger than the bores so can't imagine there being a problem with being a bit bigger
Theres no oem one as far as I know that retains the standard thickness and will accommodate 83mm and greater pistons? IE sell one but is either a modified oem one or some other brand but there's is $100 where as I think the thinner vag one above is about £25 hence why most people happily fit the thinner vag one when overbored past 82.5mm
ALT engine 2.0 Passat 01-05
Got a price?
I use the ALT head gasket, not a problem with 30+ psi
About £30 from GSF
i hope it can be ok with standard bore. but if the oem one does sit tight to the bore then i guess it should be ok.
il see if i can find the specs for that passat engine, what bore it has.
82.5 bore. winning
£26.00 inc vat to you.
£20 to everyone else
Thanks mate, but I can't be ***** to change it about now. Just going to stick with what I have. At some point my non rifle drilled rods will destroy my engine and need to be removed, and when that happens I might look into it again.
No £43.84 inc vat to everyone else lol.
My sentiments about this engine I'm building currently...
It'll be fine for a track car as your revs are always up, Leon will soon be running 270ish bhp and 19mm stock rods.
When will yours be ready?
Oi Karl disliking my post lol.
Discount goes to those i choose to give it to. Randoms get sod all
I get 30p WooHoo :thumbsup:
Yeah if its a stupid little PITA part with f all margin like you always seem to want lol
with great power comes great discounts.... I mean responsibilities
A centre console is not small or a PITA part.
But granted the little washers, nuts and brackets are. lol
Basically Karl & Scott: Jason doesn't like you.
lol Scott has had loads of bits from me and i treat him well. Karl has ordered nothing from me so yeah...But now after his actions today he can do one! haha
It is a PITA part when you want one that isnt suited to your fcn car and i have to try and work out what will fit and what wont!
I need to order that. lol
on a £1 part that would be pretty generous
Yeah im sure your local dealer will sort you out nicely lol
Last time I bring you pasty!!
Didnt eat one anyway! lol
jason isnt into smashing pastys, more of a SAUSAGEroll kind of guy
Food wise yeah. Can't beat a good sausage roll
Reesy likes sausage and mayonnaise sandwiches. Says it reminds him of something. Strange boy.
Terrible comeback. Speaking of comebacks, remind your mum she still owes me a tenner.
Everything sorted for the weekend. If it hasn't already arrived, it's been ordered.
Quite excited if I'm honest.
Not yet, it's only Wednesday.
