not compensating

Discussion Starter #1
as a long term build plan i was looking into having making a 1.8t into a 2.0t and im not really sure what all that entails

ive seen larger pistons and having to boar out the block to fit them
i saw shorter rods that fake a bigger volume (if i understand what i read)

heres what ive been looking at

someone that does this or knows about this what i want to know

other than machining out the block to fit the pistons is everything else in a mod like this swapping in forged parts and bolting stuff together ?

this seem like it would be easier that doing the vr6 swap

if memory serves the 1.8t is 9:1 compression so i would assume after the boar you would want the same compression(at the now larger displacement) if your running boost ? or would you lower it a notch and crank up the boost with a bigger turbo ?

if sure ill think of more questions i just wanted clarification and didn't find much with search

if it is just a bore out and all remains stock, then everything basically goes back together normally, if it were me, I would think about the following ...

1) Cylinder head to block match up
2) Timing, crank to cylinder head
3) ECU update for all intake, timing and knock sensors

2.0 stroker

1st, head over to the vortex and search STROKER in the keyword, using 1.8t in the forum option.
You'll find around 7-8 pages of refrence material.
Eurospec used to do stroker kits... so you may want to check there.

Good luck.
