$14,821.66

All new 2276cc 48 IDA aircooled VW engine, using only the best parts on the market. Fully machined and blueprinted!

Each engine we build is custom per client; we do not operate an assembly line therefore our engines are not ‘off the shelf’. The list below is a non-exhaustive list of components we like to work with, though we prefer to speak to our clients first and discuss their engine requirements before finalizing the build spec.  Please contact our chief engine builder and owner Stefan, if you would like a quote or to place an order.

Description

Our 2276cc 48 IDA aircooled VW engines are complete turnkey, broken-in, dyno tuned and ready to install into your vehicle!

We have personally tried and tested all of the components we include in our builds, ensuring our customers get the best of the best.

There are many vital steps to building an engine which are often missed, or not even considered, by other engine builders.  Cylinder surface finish and rocker geometry are two great examples of important measurements and data collection, which are essential figures when building an aircooled engine that will last. Our Machine Shop and Engine Room pages, explain in more detail the meticulous processes and show you our top of the range measuring equipment and the clinical looking engine assembly room.
