      I think the more important figure to look at is the rod length/stroke ratio, as a motor like a 9a (short rods/long stroke) is not as good as a motor like the ABA (longer rods/long stroke) when it...

      I drive and race (auto-x/hillclimb) VW's because I like them, I don't expect to be the fastest with them. And there aren't now nor have their been that many of them in the grid. I was at an auto-x...

      All well and good if you are going to stick with the DI, and the turbo. I sorta thought this was about an NA motor?

      Pretty sure cams will be needed, cause flow and normal rpm's aren't going to get you to your target. Cam's profiled for the added rpm's will most likely be needed, as you'll also wnat to go with shim...

      Why would you do that, IF you can get one, that really limits your ability to get spares, and I doubt that it'll flow much better than a properly ported factory head. As the rest of the motor is a VW...

      Not sure what the "Holley HP" is, but if it's the efi, I can almost guarantee that MS is easier to tune.
      And as for durable heads, that would mostly depend on how far you push/build it and what your...

      Another important factor is the chassis the motor is going into. Most of the hondas are able to take a bigger tire and wheel than a VW of a similar age. And they generally have a better stock...

      Seems a well ported 16 or 20V head on top of a well built block with dry sump and EFI'd ITB's will get you at or near your targeted HP. With the "budget" you have, I don't see how you can't make your...

      That, I think is a good question. What is your budget, what aftermarket parts are available, what does your motor builder prefer? How much fabrication are you willing to do/allowed?

      Then you know you will need different pistons to keep the CR high to go with what ever head you use.

      If you truly have an 8V motor at 200hp, a 16V or a 20V head should get you at or near your goal.
