I was wondering

1. Whats the max power on the 020 trans in a 95 Jetta, its an 8V 2.0L, What would go first? Clutch Not included. Can it hold around 350HP?

2. How much power will the stock crank hold?(IM looking for about 300+ HP on my build)

3. What would be the thing i need to change to make my power goal, ive heard some say i had to swap pistons and rods others nothing.

Im new to VW, If you can help me out at all please help.

obd1 came with forged cranks. bottom end can easily handle 350hp, although very very very few people ever got that on a 2.0. First thing to go in the o2o is the diff so put a lsd in there
