In addition to all of the standard items that come with the GEX engines, we also offer the following options to build it your way.
The stock VW crankshaft without counterweights on the opposite end of the throws causes premature wear on both the main bearings and the main bearing saddles. This ultimately results in lower oil pressure and usually a shorter engine life than would otherwise be possible. The GEX Chromoly Counterweighted Crankshaft solves all these problems by evenly distributing the load of the entire reciprocating mass. This extends the life of the case and the engine. Standard equipment on the 1904 cc and larger engines (exc. 1914 cc).

Full Flow Oil Pump with Spin On Filter
This is a quick and easy alternative to complicated full flow systems, yet still utilizes a real oil filter instead of just the stock screen. The filter mounts directly on to the oil pump. If you want to keep your oil clean without a lot of expense or trouble, then this is the way to go. Spin-on Filter is standard equipment on Hydraulic lifter engines except late Type II and Type III with the rear mount.

Where rebuilt is good, new is always better. If you're in it for the long run, or simply want the best available, why not start with a brand new, fully machined, standard size, dual relief, state of the art case.

Electronic Engine Balance
Balancing is an absolute must for any Hi-Performance application and highly recommended on stock engines. Pistons and connecting rods are matched to within 1/2 gram and crank and flywheel are balanced to achieve the ultimate in a smooth running high mileage engine.
Electronic Engine Balance
The GEX windage tray fits into the bottom of the engine case. Made to prevent oil sloshing and spray, it keeps the oil near the sump and available to the oil puck up tube.
Hydraulic Lifters Kit
Hydraulic lifters eliminate valve adjustments and require less maintenance. Available on all of our Type I, early Type II and Type III engines, these are brand new performance anti-bleed lifters. The Hydraulic Package includes: New Hydraulic Lifters, Hydraulic Camshaft, Heavy Duty Oil Pump with Spin-on Filter, New Hi Carbon Steel Push Rods. Spin-on Filter not included on late Type II and Type III vehicles with the rear mount. Not recommended for engines 1776 cc and higher.
With the additional demands placed on a higher performance engine, the demands on it's oil are increased as well. The GEX deep sump provides an extra 1-1/2 quarts of oil, therefore increasing oil cooling and helping to prevent oil starvation during hard use.
Super Cool Tin
Originally designed to aid the cooling of the Type III's, these tins dispense air around the bottoms of the cylinders for a far superior cooling effect. We recommend these for all stock and hi-performance Type I's and early Type II's.
