VW Hot Rod Performance Cylinder Shims and Head Gaskets
Here at Chirco Performance we offer both copper cylinder head gaskets as well as steel cylinder shims, cylinder shims are used to achieve desired compression ratios by increasing or decreasing your VW cylinder deck height, our custom head gaskets are installed in the cylinder head between the cylinder and cylinder head and are commonly used on performance engine builds. These also allow for more cc in the cylinder head to lower compression. Please browse all of our performance custom engine parts categories for all your VW parts needs
I want to start off by giving a big THANKS to the Chirco staff. I have only had my Baja a little over a month now but they all have been very helpful in everything I’ve needed. If I didn’t understand something they explained it very well. I took the Baja from something that hadn’t run in two years or so and got it moving again, I couldn’t have done it with the help from them and the extensive parts selection they have.
Have purchased thousands of dollars of engine parts, brake parts, transaxle assembles and front end assembles. Great place to purchase your VW components. All of my parts were right on point. Were shipped to my to my delivery point. Can't go wrong with this business!!! Al
They have always had exactly what I have needed from my 1965 Baja, to my 1974 super, always willing to give advice, the staff knows their stuff, and they have a large stockpile of parts, the only place I get my VW parts.
Regardless of whatever else I've had for cars I've always had at least one VW. Reliable and easy to work on. Chirco is without question the best place around Tucson to get quality VW parts and service.
