Convert the Passat to a manual and take the project from there (:

It has crossed my mind, however if I'm going down that road I'm finding a A4 wagon with quattro and using that. Or an Audi Allroad

Hello all, I'm finally back from the holiday and ready to tear into my new passat I got. I have a few questions though.

Should I have the BHW rehoned or do I just use it as is?
Should I get stronger rods or are stock adequate?

Rods are good for 250-300hp AFAIK-not sure if that's crank or wheel. Have the machine shop check the bores for roundness. BTW, rings for a BHW aren't cheap, dealer are $200 a hole, had to have Total Seal make me a set.

IDparts has BHW rings $24 a set. So I'm thinking it might be worth getting the cylinders rehoned. However this engine only has 120k miles on it.

I would leave it alone. Build it to Dave's build spec and revisit the need for more power later (and the subsequent beefing up of the shortblock). I think you'll be more than satisfied with 250hp...especially if you're just commuting with it.

I think I will be plenty pleased as well.

Haha good point. I'll just do the balance shaft delete and call it good. Also saves me money.

You sure about that? I checked his site and nothing. If I missed that, damn it.

Edit, I was right, sort of, lol.

Inidivudual piston ring set for the 2.0L piston (81mm diameter) used in the BHW, CBEA and CJAA engines.

These are special order and come from Germany. Lead time is usually around 2 months.

Yikes I didn't see the 2 month part. I think I'll just leave mine as it is.

BHW is out of the passsat with the harness tagged out. I've stripped off all the accessories and I'm doing some cleaning on it now.

Question for today is, how well will the passat harness plug into the golf harness as far as the chassis harness goes? I'm swapping over the ECU with the engine so I figured the whole harness should come.

Also do I take the time to remove the un-needed electrical parts like auto related plugs and egr.

Or how much of the golf engine harness would work?

I'm terrible when it comes to harness layouts and have yet to find a decent schematic to allow me to pin out things.

Thanks in advance!
