2300cc Piston and Liner Set
Important! This product is only to be purchased if you already have a GoWesty 2300cc engine that requires replacement piston and cylinders. If you are rebuilding your engine, please purchase our 2300cc Engine Rebuild Kit.
These GoWesty piston and cylinder sets (otherwise known as piston and liner sets) are identical to what we use in our own 2.3 liter engines. The pistons are custom made for GoWesty specifically for our 2300 engine/kits. These are identical to the pistons we use in our GoWesty-built 2300 engines-same manufacture, process, coatings, exactly the same. These are simply the absolute best-quality piston available on this planet. If there was a better piston, we would be using it! The cylinders are original VW German design that have been bored and honed using GoWesty proprietary fixtures and techniques.
Kit includes: (4) 2.3 pistons (96mm bore x 79.5mm stroke), wrist pins, clips, rings, cylinders, and special solid copper head gaskets
IMPORTANT NOTE: The engine block assembly (case) may need to be hand-machined for added clearance in several places, including (but not limited to) the roof and beneath piston at BDC and back side of the bosses into which the head studs install from the opposite side. The case is made from cast aluminum, and no two are exactly the same. There is no "blue print" or "program" to achieve this; it has to be done by hand by a very experienced and talented individual. The crankshaft/rod assembly, cylinder, and piston must be test-fitted repeatedly to ensure that the clearance is correct and adequate, while at the same time not going too far and maintaining the cleanliness required for any successful engine rebuild.
NOTE: This kit DOES NOT include installation instructions, and we will not provide technical support throughout the building process. If you do not have the tools, experience, and/or know-how to build a water boxer engine, please purchase one of our complete engines.
CORE CHARGE: $200. This kit is sold "exchange," which means that we need to get your old, rebuildable cylinders back. Please contact our customer service team at (888) 469-3789 or firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain a return authorization number prior to shipping your old cylinders to GoWesty.
