I was just wondering if anyone has bored out an r32 to the 36? Or does everyone do the Audi transplant?
As above ^^^^Not possible, the R36 and R32 are completely different engines, you couldn't bore out 400cc.
If you've ever seen R32 pistons and thought they were big, take a look at some R36 ones!
An overbore on an R32 isn't possible much up to 2mm as the walls become too thin.
Not a question of just boaring either, an R36 crank has a longer throw too.
Yep, different engines. The R32 gets it's capacity from the crank and 84mm bore. It's a different casting to the 2.8.Is the 3.2 effectively a bored 2.8, or are they completely different engines?
The R32 is/was effectively an evolution of the 12V VR6. Different head, bigger bore and longer stroke, but the original 12V block will not house this.Is the 3.2 effectively a bored 2.8, or are they completely different engines?
