Yea the mag case is not the best....but they turbo VWs dont they ??
People do tons of things to VW's. Thats because you can pick up the Motor and build it on the dining room table and the parts are cheap. It also requires relatively little expertise to build one.

Price a VW Gasket set, Price a Porsche Gasket set

Price a VW Oil Pump, Price a Porsche Oil Pump

Price a VW ROD, Piston, Cylinder, Head, etc, Do the same for Porsche.

People build VW's knowing they are cheap to replace if you blow them up, if Porsche Parts are Cheap to you, then I suppose it's the same thing.

The original poster said his motor was tired. I think taking a Tired 2.7 and "blowing" is Fiscally Capricious!!

Just my .02

I'm not saying it can't be done, but the prep work would be astronomical in relation to the return. If your Goal is to F*ck up your Tired Ass motor, bolt a Turbo on it and go WEEE!!!!

Then Buy a 930 or 3.2 and do it properly. I'm sure you'll LEARN a lot along the way. My opinion, a Coke Habit or a Boat would be cheaper!
