OEM ABF 16v Pistons in 2e block

Post by GolfGTI » Thu Jul 04, 2013 2:46 pm

Good day all.

I did a search but would like confirmation from you clever guys.

Will OEM ABF 16v pistons work in a 2e long block with 2e conrods?

Can you get rings for the pistons and would someone know what they cost or where to get?

Thanks

basically blocks are identical, just some 2e has cast cranks and some forged.

The pistons will fit. Question is what do you whant to do?

2e block + ABF pistons = basicly an ABF sub assembly
So add a 16V head and you have basicly an ABF motor.
Add a 8v head and... Well you have a problem.

Thanks. Which cranks are the nicer or better ones and how do you tell the difference between them?
