Hello everyone, I'm currently building a twin turbo R32, Base engine is a BDB code got pretty much everything sorted for the bottom end but I'm still undecided on weather or not to get a girdle plate for the mains or not, does anybody on here use one or have used one ? Would be grateful for any feedback back. Thanks.

I got one fitted more for piece of mind then anything as i have spent a fortune on my engine plus will be running 900+ bhp when finally mapped. Anything below 700 bhp will be a waste of time as the block is very strong on the V6 engines anyway . Even over 700 bhp most people don`t bother using them unless all out drag cars over 1000 bhp. 


820 bhp turbo Mk4 Golf R32. Still wanting more power .

Well my aimed power is 750bhp, like you say I was swaying toward one for piece of mind more than anything as I'd like to up the power in the future maybe, how did you get round the oil pump drive with the girlde plate or is it still long enough to reach ? I'm in limbo at the minute. Do I get one to be safe, or not. Decisions decisions haha

Now that's an engine girdle! Is this the one you have used? You couldn't tell me how much it was if you don't mind me asking ?
