hi 2 all,
yesterday I removed cylinder head from my Quattro.
Yes it is way easy to remove head with Manifolds atached, and then detach
10x to all for sugestion. ;)
the bad thing - there is 0.40mm gap between cylinder wall and pistons :(
in the same time.. cylinder wall isn't scratched at all. So I think to
replace only pistons with rings (with no oversized - 81mm original) - is
this a good idea??
Is it possible to use pistons for 1.8 4 cyl VW Engine.. I think they are
with smaller face profil, so is it possible to gain some extra compression
And last question ;) How to pull out Injector seats (or shrouds or I dont
know wat is it.. but remain in cylinder head when I pull out injectors)?


'85 Quattro Coupe (HY Engine - 2.2 136PS Non Turbo);
