    [TD="class: alt1"] I am selling my JE 83mm Pistons for 1.8T platform.

    I am moving back to standard 1.8T pistons with forged rods.

    The pistons have roughly 6,000 miles on them and have slight rubbing on the piston skirt but should not effect their performance.

    I have brand new wrist pins from JE included in the sale. I bought these last year as I thought the small end of my connecting rods had failed but this was not the case.



    Looking for £250

    Price reduced to £150 based on what these are priced as new.

    Just to be clear these do not include piston rings as new ones would be required for a new build.

    I also have a 1.9 head gasket to suit that I will let go for £50 with the pistons.

    No sir! I used the stock 1.8T crank with these 83mm pistons.

    A 1.9 crank with these pistons would give you 2.1L

    See the possible configs below:

    86.4mm stroke = Stock 1.8T Cranks
    92.8mm stroke = Stock 2.0 FSI Cranks
    95.5mm stroke = 1.9 TDI Crank

    81mm bore x 86.4mm stroke = 1781cc
    83mm bore x 86.4mm stroke = 1870cc
    83.5mm bore x 86.4mm stroke = 1892.7cc
    81mm bore x 92.8mm stroke = 1913cc
    83mm bore x 92.8mm stroke = 2008cc
    83.5mm bore x 92.8mm stroke = 2033cc
    83mm bore x 95.5mm stroke = 2066cc

    Ok thanks.
    Not sure it's worth me doing it on a standard crank ... Won't see that many gains I don't think ...

    Don't mean this in a smart way but I would do more research.

    2mm more in the cylinder bore makes a massive difference in power band and low end torque.

    Edit: Also not to mention the lower compression of these pistons over stock

    How confident are you that these will not be an issue?

    I'd be pretty confident.

    Honestly you can't even feel the marks with your nails they are that fine.

    Once the block is bored to specification there should be zero issues.

    where the marks are they won't cause any problems due to them being under the piston rings, the marks won't have any affect on compression.
