1992 Volkswagen Corrado "Der Blaue Machs"
My last mechanic bored out my early 1992 VR6 engine from stock 2.8L to 3.0L, but then completely ruined it by forgetting to replace the crankshaft bearings, installing the water pump crossways, and stripping the head bolt holes by using English thread head bolts instead of Metric ones. Now the engine is scrap metal, and I need a new(er) one. I understand that VR6 engines come in 2.8L, 3.0L, 3.2L, 3.4L, and 3.6L configurations. Assuming that the external shape of engines is about the same, what size engine should I get and how much power can my chassis handle? My new mechanic is going to install forged racing pistons, a Garrett Turbocharger, and computerized air-fuel injection, with a completely new wiring harness. Assuming that the external shape of engines is about the same, what is the optimum size and boost for my chassis?
