I just about "shot peened my ring and pinion" when I saw these pics!!!
It's a Eurospec eurovan rally shortblock: 9:1, 82.5mm x 95.5mm =2553cc

Just kidding, it's been sitting in storage for about 3 years, the dude is asking $1,300.00
eurospec's list price is $2,150.00

That's 12lbs. per hp. for comparason, an V6tt S4 is 14lbs. per hp.....
I'm trying scrape the money together to get a 034 42mm x 34mm flow ported head, it'll flow as much as a stock 4valve.
I'm not trying to discredit what you're doing, just curious about the choices. VR6's have great displacment, and the 20v heads can really flow. Neither seems to be a consideration.

and the newish bits from 034 make that more of a possibility.

I don't have the facilities to tear my car apart and it not run for more than a few days.
Even a new engine (2nd one in 4 years) is still a "bolt on" mod. I can have the car up and running in 3 days!
A 20v head would mean I'd have to use the 20v F.I. or convert to 034 F.I.
It would take weeks to install and troubleshoot!
I have part of the 034 system, but wiring and installation will have to wait untill I can buy or borrow another car long term.
Even after one of these systems is installed it'll take weeks and ideally the use of a dyno to map it and tune it properly!
