    Default engine head work

    Hello everybody!
    I am very new to this forum and do not yet have a pug, but plan on getting GTi6 very shortly. I will probably start with suspension, brakes and wheels+tyres for now, but later on would like to get going with the engine. So i was just wondering if there are any good workshops that can work on the head for better flow, install cams and such? pretty much someone who understands what they are doing when it comes to N/A engines.
    Cheers, Vlad

    The head basically won't need any more work apparently they are good for upwards of 250hp, just bigger cams, possibly throttle bodies and a programmable ecu. Then you just need to make it hold together at high revs.

    Hi Vlad,

    If I were you, I'd speak to the guys at Auto Paris in Box Hill. they love the Gti6 and would be the performance people in Melbourne to speak to. Paul or Danny, great blokes and know what they're on about. 98908822 is the number. I'd love to see some quads on the gti6

    cheers

    I think Dave has mentioned the important thing in such an engine... the ECU...

    Don't look at anything else until you've explored that avenue.

    cheers, David, that number will come in handy...hopefully soon!
    Ray, for sure, the ECU will go in together with cams, just need to save up first. I wouldn't eve think about doing something to the engine with out management system to suit it.
    I was just reading all the staff on pumaracing, and it seems head work is high on the list there, but we'll see what can be done!

    The head is a work of art already. Puma makes money out of selling/installing big valves for anything. The GTi6 already has enough compression. It just needs cam(s) and an ECU to control it all.

    The first thing you should do, is get the std. head flow tested by someone who can make informed decisions. I wouldn't spend money on big valves for a GTi6 if the valves/seats are in good condition.
