Eurovan engine conversion

Hello everybody, new member here..... :)

I just purchased a 93 Eurovan MV Westy which is in great condition, but with 225,000 miles on it. Runs okay, but the head gasket is leaky, so it's time to get it repaired or replaced. I haven't had a compression test done yet.

If a replacement is in order, what reasonable upgrade options do I have? A stronger VW engine would be nice, since I'll be towing a small sailboat or trailer from time to time.

Thanks in advance,
Jeff

Hello Jeff,
I have had my 92cv for a year.I was wondering the same question when I purchased mine.The tech I talked to said it would be a huge undertaking for a VR6. So I talked to my local mechanic who's a hopup wizard and he suggested a supercharger.The spec's say it is a 8:5 compression ratio, so he said one could be bolted straight on.I have been surching around for crossover parts from Audi's 5 cylinder motors but I haven't found anything concrete yet.Aftermarket is a possibiliy as well.
Anyways I figure a overhaul and some nice parts would probably be less than a VR6 and tranny as well.I will stay posted Because I am curious if somebody has other ideas. There doesn't seem to be too much info on the newer models as there is on the older Westies.

The Audi S4 1991-1994 AAN engine is the same block and should bolt in. There are rare.
