CNC engineered gas flowed cylinder heads

Volkswagen Golf 8v (Std Valve)

 A worldwide favourite hot hatch road car and sucessful track advocate. The 8 valve Golf GTi started the hot hatch revolution and is still a great enthusiasts car. Every form of performance modification has been produced for this car but there can be few more effective (and cost effective ) than our new 8 valve head.

Our head shows a very healthy inlet increase of 30.9 % peak flow rate at max valve lift is seen here along with a substantially improved flow rate across the valve lift range. Exhaust improvement is 26.9% improvement at the max valve opening. These are substantial gains and will benefit the delivery of the power low down as well as peak power overall.


This head will produce 156BHp without at 6500rpm with excellent increase in torque throughout the rev range. Remember, our power predictions are accurate because we test our heads on our own dyno and the head you buy is a 100% accurate engineered replica of our master head.

Cost for this head is £525.00 + vat on an exchange basis. (£350 exchange). A ‘taping’ service is also available for this head at an additional cost of £100 which will give the final hand finish to the ports and provide a further 1% flow.

Note : flow diagrams show flow against specific valve openings at 0.050 inch valve openings at 10″ pressure. Therefore actual flow volume increase is measured as the area under the graph (indicated in yellow for inlet and blue for exhaust). Standard valve sizes are used on our heads unless specified as a big valve version. Tests shown here are carried out on a flow bench on a bare head without filters. Therefore the difference between a standard engine with standard inlet ducting and filters will be larger than shown here.

Custom made CamshaftsWith all of our gas flowed heads we also provide a custom made camshaft service. These camshafts are designed to optimise the flow characteristics of our heads. They can also be specifically designed to deliver the power characteristcs you require for your specific application.Your existing camshaft will work with our heads, however, if you want to get the most from one of these heads or you have a particular power characteristc you are looking for, we recommend that you consider our custom camshafts.Price £500 + vat

We are happy to discuss and advise on any aspect of modifying your engine with one of our heads to achieve the results we predict above. We can also supply the best quality gaskets, camshaft, valves, valve springs and head bolts to go with your new cylinder head. We also specialise in electronic engine management, carb and fuel injection , turbo and supercharger systems. We build race engines too. Built and tested on our own 1000bhp Engine Dyno. We can also fit your head to your engine if required and test your vehicle on our rolling road.

What ever your requirements, race, track day or fast road, we have a full range of the latest and best performance products and techniques. Our competition results year on year prove we have the expertise to make your car competitive at what ever class you chose to compete.
