OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is CLOSED and we are NOT accepting any NEW orders at this time.

We are still fulfilling and shipping previously submitted and/or delayed order requests (as product availability allows) UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th 2022.

But after November 15th, all still pending backordered unshipped items will be automatically CANCELLED **(except for any special ordered drop-shipped or made/machined-to-order items).

Our ability to respond to emails is greatly hampered by being under-staffed during this downsize transition time. But we continue to endeavor to answer email inquiries as best we can. And we will continue responding to emails through until early March 2023 because we are wholly committed to resolving any other issues that may arise from previous sales. It is still UNCERTAIN, but we may re-open a substantially downsized version of our store again in the Spring of 2023.

We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding during this period of restructuring and/or closing. And a huge thank you to all of you whose support and loyalty we have been the beneficiary of over the 23 years that we have worked diligently to support the information and parts needs of the aircooled VW community!

88mm x 69-74mm Hypereutectic Slip-In Bottom and Machine in Top Piston & Cylinder Set, AA Brand, Type 1, VW8800T1K
88mm x 69-74mm Hypereutectic Slip-In Bottom and Machine in Top Piston & Cylinder Set, AA Brand, Type 1, VW8800T1K


 
88mm x 69-74mm Hypereutectic Slip-In Bottom and Machine in Top Piston & Cylinder Set, AA Brand, Type 1, VW8800T1K is one of the most useful and unique products available for aircooled VW Engines in 2 decades! 1300/1500/1600cc OD on the cylinder base, 92mm TOP, with an 88mm Thick Wall! These quality piston sets are great to around 6500 RPMs.

This piston set allows you to upgrade your engine to 1700cc with ULTRA RELIABLE 88mm THICK WALL Pistons and Cylinders, without machining, and give you a cylinder that is a whopping 5.25mm thick at the top! This means you can use a stock case opening at the bottom, and only have to bore the heads (or buy heads that are already bored), saving you a ton of money on shipping to/from a machinist!

Basically your engine case will still be the 1300/1500/1600cc size, but the heads will need to be the 92/90.5mm size. So, if you order these pistons along with cylinder heads (bored to the 92/90.5mm size) at the same time, assembly will be like stock! You can really wake up that stock engine with these and a set of performance heads!

Price: $279.95

5 of 5 Piston and Cylinder set October 18, 2018
Reviewer: Michael Morton from McLaren Vale, South Australia Australia  
I bought a set of these for my daughter's Type 3 Fastback when we fully re-built the motor and it has just finished 600 miles of running in.  The car runs really nice and I am very happy with them.

5 of 5 Pistion and cylinders March 26, 2016
Reviewer: Grahamm Boyett from Soldier, KS United States  
The quality of these are good especially for the price. As long as your not putting a turbo or too much compression they are pretty much all you need.  I don't see spending a lot on pistons and cylinders. $400 is too much if your making close to stock power.

5 of 5 Nice set of pistons and cylinders April 18, 2012
Reviewer: Joshua Haritos from Marquez, TX United States  
These are a very nice looking set of P's&C's. They come with wrist pins, retainers, and rings. They all have a light coating of oil on them and they are sealed in plastic. I have not installed them yet. The jugs are very beefy just as described. I will post another review once I have installed and run them.
