    Just looking at a GT2871R, obviously going to change the rods, but, do the valves, springs guides & pistons need changing as well?
    Car is a Cupra Mk3 AYP with 65,000 mls

    Cheers

    No. Valves etc will be fine as standard. Pistons wont need doing unless they are damaged in any way

    Thought about the GTX2867R?

    Bit more top end than the 71R same/better spool I found.
