Re: Re: 2.5 L I-5


Can you offer any information about what (else) is required to use 
the EV crank to build a stroker Audi I5?  I remember you did some 
R&D into this some time ago, right?

What of these rods and pistons that are necessary for this swap?  
The Audi 2.0l 4 banger internals are definitely required?  I thought 
the Audi 4 cylinder was the same dimensionally as a 4 cylinder, 
only less the one cylinder (and crank "timing" or whatever).

I wonder what the driveability of a converted 2.5l would be like.  I'm 
unfamiliar with the effects of increasing stroke.

Anyone know what the resultant compression ratio would be after 
stroking the motor in this manner?

Also, where was that reply?  I missed the reply you're quoting
