Hi, I heard a while back here that some aftermarket pistons for our Beta engines, were modified VW ones.

Apparently they were almost identical in Diameter (Bore) and wrist pin size.

Which model of VW engine is this?

Let me clarify

The VW bus(caravelle here or Kombi) are the same diameter and fit with NO modifications.

Also the VW golf or Rabbit pistons, the 1800 fit as well with no modifications.

The gudgeon pin has to be pressed into the piston though.

The best to go for if you are going turbo are the Kombi, or "bus" pistons.... they come in at teh correct diameter adn lower the compression on a an 1800 Beta motor to around 8:1.

I dont know what the VW Caravelle is called in the states or everywhere else, but those work perfectly.
