View Full Version : Leak Down Test 1.6 Motor

10-21-2001, 11:49 AM
At the end of the season here in New England I did a leak down test on my 1.6 vw motor and it was passing 20% is this common for this type of motor or is it to much.The rings are only about 8-10 races old.

I've raced with you - I wouldn't worry about your motor http://Forums.ImprovedTouring.com/it/rolleyes.gif

I've raced with you too. I'd like to see your leakdown in the 90% range.

Since this is an all NER and NYR VW discussion I guess I should jump in here before I am no longer a member of this elite club. Rick your motor has more than enough power. Any of you guys know anyone looking for a C car http://Forums.ImprovedTouring.com/it/wink.gif Got to get rid of this thing. Anyway, have a good off season. I am trying to convince my brother to let me drive his EP 2002 out this way next year so hopefully I'll see you then.
