Product Description

The EMPI 1600cc VW long block engine will get your car back on the road with stock VW performance and reliability. This long block engine comes backed by a 12-month/12,000 mile warranty. The 1600cc EMPI long block engine is built in Southern California by legendary VW racing legend Jack Sacchette. There's no core, no long lead-times, and no rebuilt components. Everything in this engine is brand new.

The EMPI 98-0480-B long block is assembled with name brand components from AutoLinea, Elring, EMPI, OSVAT, Mahle, Manton, Silverline and Schadek. This engine in particular includes a new AutoLinea aluminum case and AutoLinea dual port cylinder heads with OE style OSVAT valves, seats and EMPI proprietary 3 angle valve job performed on a Rottler valve machine at EMPI in Anaheim, California.

All EMPI Long Blocks are crated on a pallet, shrink-wrapped and ready to ship directly from EMPI. They arrive via truck-freight and delivery includes residential lift-gate service if necessary.

Can only be shipped to the lower 48 States.
