Hi

Does anyone know what gasket set type i should use on me engine rebuild, bare inmind i have only just bought this car so no clue atm.

The enigine is a 1.8 GTI 16v no idea of engine number yet.

Now for the tricky bit is has been modded by GTI engineering to a RE2000 list of mods below it now makes it a 2.0ltr

The conversion comprises:

    <LI class=MainText>Steel crankshaft of 92.8mm stroke,
    <LI class=MainText>Cylinder block specially machined with 82.5mm bore,
    <LI class=MainText>Lead-Indium heavy duty crankshaft bearings,
    <LI class=MainText>Alloy pistons with valve clearance cut-outs,
    <LI class=MainText>Gasflowed cylinder head,
    <LI class=MainText>Re-profiled inlet and exhaust valve throats,
    <LI class=MainText>Gasflowed inlet and exhaust manifold,
    <LI class=MainText>Selected valve springs,
  • Modified injection system.
  • 16V Camshafts.


So you see im not sure if i can put in a standard gasket set or need a race set just dont know.



I did call BBR GTI but they where not sure of anything.



Any help appreciated.
