IE AAA 12V VR6 Stage 1 Short Block


Item #: IESBVV1


When building an engine, we know that is can be a time consuming project, not to mention plenty of labor. Using our many years of experience with VW/Audi engines, we are now offering assembled short blocks to make your engine build a breeze. We have developed the ideal combination of parts for these engines using our in-house Superflow SF-902 engine dyno. These are all AAA 12V VR6 blocks. The stage 1 short blocks are rated for use up to 750BHP.
