Hi all!
The time has come for my GTI engine to be rebuilt. The head gasket went kaput and thought since the engine will be messed around with it might be worth having it all being worked on and to give it some love.

I eventually want to boost my GTI at a later date so something that is reliable and cost effective enough to eventually endure low boost is my goal. Before all of that however I wanted to know what sort of parts you guys would recommend to chuck into my engine for something that will tear it up on the street but still be able to be my daily driver pre-boost. Cams, pistons, etc.

Your experiences and any advice for building would be awesome to have.

All the best, 9hp
