Golf R engine Forged or not

Recommended Posts

See a variety of review videos saying the golf R engine is forged vs the GTI which isn't but then some say its just a GTI engine but power increased.


What's the actual answer to this.... is some components of the 7R & 7.5r engine forged?

It's not forged. The cylinder head is made of a different alloy  to the other ea888 gen3 engines due to thermal stress differences, the exhaust valves are nitrided, and the valve seats upgraded for better temperature stability. Also the pistons, turbo and ancillaries , injectors and fuelling components are unique to the R.

The imminent 300ps engine has further changes to the cam profiles and timing as well as the GPF.
