misfire on low rev got it checked out and Low compression on 5 cylinders. So not looking good.If you already need a rebuild that will be the perfect opportunity. Schrick cams will set you back £8-900, if you wanted a gas flowed head that'll be £1650 with a £600 exchange for your current head, pistons and rods will be around £1500. Chain kits are around £200 as are head gasket sets. If you needed any engine spares, head or block and all other parts, Lucifer on here always has parts or complete engines for sale, he can also advise on where to get parts for good prices.
Why do you need a rebuild if you don't mind saying?
Thank for this.. how much would a second hand engine be?Unless your your going to fit a turbo no point fitting pistons etc only cams. If the engine needs a complete rebuild i would have thought much cheaper just to get a secondhand engine and fit that.
As for performance parts :
not any other symptoms just started a mad misfire, took it right to a vw dealer that is when they said about the low compression.. the water pump went and got replace just before all this happened.Are you getting any smoke, overheating or any other symptoms?
no did not overheat was just pissing coolant out as soon i put it in. The garage are taking the head off today should find out soon...Had it been overheating when the pump was shot? Could have warped the head if it did?
Sorry to hear that, what have they said is wrong with the head?Clylinder head needs replaced. VW want 6k lol. So i am now looking for a cylinder head if anybody can help?????
It is warped... Nearly 1mm they said 0.4mm max so needs doneSorry to hear that, what have they said is wrong with the head?
As said mate, give Lucifer a shout.
