Thread: You know the VR8 heads they make for the W16s in Bugattis?

  1. #1

    You know the VR8 heads they make for the W16s in Bugattis?

    I always thought that if this was possible... it'd be supremely badass.

    You know how they make VR8 heads for the W16s in various bugatti cars? Anyone ever try to make a single VR8 out of it? As in just an extended VR6? Would it even be possible? Obviously the hardest part would be well... MAKING the VR8 block... considering they don't exist. But... COULD it exist? Could one be custom made? Would a VR8 work balance wise?

    Just spitballing here. I wonder what such an engine would perform like.

    I doubt it, they put a dent in the chassis leg for clearance on the VR? MK2 retro fit needs to have its chassis leg dented for clearance too?

    2 extra cylinders would need the leg cutting out? The extra weight wont help handling either

    Serious engineering work there. I'm sure VW could design it..

    Doubtful. It'd be more fun to put it in a longitudinal AWD conversion anyway, plus that would help with weight distribution.

    I just thought it'd be cool if it were near identical to the VR6, just... longer, therefore everything for the VR6 would just bolt right on (ignoring things like fuel rails and the like.)

    The future of most corrados is undoubtedly electric traction motor from an e-golf...

    I know, right? Quicker, AND more reliable!
