VW Cylinder head Upgrades
What are cylinder heads?
The cylinder heads house the inlet and exhaust
ports, valvetrain and spark plugs. There are 2 cylinder heads in an aircooled VW engine and
this is where combustion is initiated.
How do upgraded cylinder heads benefit my VW?
Upgraded cylinder heads will include one or more of the following:
- Larger ports for increased flow
- Oversized valves
- Improved combustion chamber design
- Improved material for increased power handling capabilities
Upgraded cylinder heads allow increased air and fuel to enter the cylinders
for a gain in engine power and torque. The compression ratio of the engine
can also be altered for increased power and efficiency.
It is important to set the compression ratio correctly in accordance with the rest of the engine design.
Unfortunately we see engines where the compression ratio has been incorrectly set. This has resulted
in detonation, poor drivability, excessive engine heat and a short engine
With over 35 years of experience with performance VW engines, we know the perfect
combinations that will give your VW the power you desire, whilst maintaining great drivability
an engine longevity. It is this experience that allows us to confidently put long
warranties on our engines.
